Do the screens come on? If not, the lower screen ribbon cable is probably loose or broken. Pop it apart and check to see if the cable is properly seated in it's jack. Check the connection on the top screen's cable while you're in there. Pay close attention as these cables are finicky. You can also, carefully, test the unit by holding your battery in place and flipping it on. If it lights up and makes noise, you've got it all right and you can re-case it. If the screens are on, it could be a power issue or any of a number of other problems. Best of luck
