Know this is an old thread, but I was having this same problem. The disassembly was easy enough, but now I couldn't get either my original screen or the new screen to turn on. The OP didn't mention it until the assembly vid, but there's a very fragile white clip that holds the ribbon cable to the LCD in place. You can see it at the end of his left thumb at 5:03. In my case, the white clip was not making a secure connection between the socket and the ribbon cable. I tried several remedies before I found one that worked. I took a piece of very sticky tape (3/8" wide) and rolled it up tightly so that it created a roll of tape about 1/8" diameter and 3/8" long. I placed this on top of the white socket, and took another piece of 3/8" wide tape (this time maybe 1/2" long) and taped it over the 1/8" x 3/8" tape roll and adhered it as tightly as I could to the circuit board. This put sufficient pressure on the socket to make a connection. It's working atm, so we'll see how it holds up.
