    Hello everyone!

    I just assembled a friend's display and after putting everything back together the display doesn't display anything correctly.

    Here are some images:

    This one is supposed to show the Apple logo on startup.

    This one is the lock screen:

    I really hope you guys can tell me what the problem is. I hope its not a faulty display!

    Thanks!

    You probably pinched one of the display wires.

    No, not necessarily. It means it's pinched. Gotta remember these wires are tiny and fragile.

    I would say take the screen off and try again from the start. If it still is occurring, you may have gotten a faulty screen.

    If you got the screen from a legitimate source, they should take it back and replace it.
