    Well you didn't mention why you took it apart and how far apart you took it.

    Did you remove the front plate from the housing? If you did, there is a good chance you pinched the ribbon cable when you put it back in place.

    When you slide those cabled through the front housing they want to get pinched. You can tell because they will look like this.

    If installed correctly they will look like this:

    Notice how the two cables line up with one another in the second image? If you pinched them, they are very difficult to snap to the connection onto the logic board. If not seated right it may be why you have a black screen. You may have also damaged the cable, in which case you need a new front.

    Take it all apart again. I'm confident thats the issue.

    The only thing to do is tear it all down again. Put the ribbon back in place correctly, reassemble and cross your fingers.
