After Replacing the Screen it won't turn on

OK, so I replaced the screen and now the screen won't turn on. When I connect the ipad to my computer I see that Itune it knowledge the iPad. Now, I did broke the lcd spacer(I think is what it calls) the clip that push down the screen LCD cable. Also, I lost one of the home button screw. So I cut a piece of the flat cable that I had from the old digitizer and I insert it on top of the connector to push the cable down as I saw that this work in other forum, but it does not. Can anybody have any tips? Thanks

Had exactly the same issue. Based on the dfu comment above, I held the power button 3 seconds, then pressed the home button for 10 seconds while continuing to hold the power button, then released the power button while continuing to hold the home button and HAPPY DAYS...it lit right up! Thanks

My Ipad 3 Wifi did the same thing. I had no screen, but if I "shorted" the home button contacts, I heard sound so I knew the system was functioning. I went ahead and removed the logic board and disconnected it from the battery (after disconnecting the top power switch ribbon assembly from it) and left it disconnected from the battery contacts for 30min. Put it back in and reconnected my button harnesses and tada! Screen was back on with my Apple logo.

"David - it sounds like you broke the latch on the flex cable connector for the LCD. The part that is actually attached to the logic board, so it may or may not be an easy fix.

I don't think it's feasible to get a good connection for the LCD without keeping the latch in tact. Can it be done? Probably. Should it be done? Nope. I've been able to find a new latch for the iPad 2 previously, but haven't needed one yet for the iPad 3.

It doesn't look like iFixit carries the part, neither do my normal suppliers. I had to browse through Chinese supplier sites until I found someone who carried it last time. I'd suggest you do the same. I looked around, but didn't see anything right away. If you can't find it, leave me a comment and I'll see if I can dig up a link."

I have an iPad 4 that I just replaced the digitizer in. The lcd worked perfect. I went to turn it on after replacing it and it wouldn't come on so I thought it was dead. I put the ipad on charge and it made a charging noise. But after leaving it on charge a while it still didn't come on. Please help.i have double checked everything to make sure it was hooked up right and it is nothing is wrong with anything. Also the home button isn't working so don't know how to do a hard reset after that and the computer recognizes it but it has a pass code I can't put it.
