Today my iPhone SE fell out of my pocket. The screen partially popped out on top and went black. I could see light coming from inside the phone and the display was black but not off(The lit up black as if it was on). I opened the iPhone, took off the cover from the screen connections, and made sure each ribbon was connected. After putting it all back together the result was the same, light coming from inside the display and a lit up black screen. Does it look like my screen needs to be replaced completely?

That would be the first thing to try. You can follow this guide from the iFixit site if you'd like to try this yourself...if you haven't used it already to open the phone :>).
