New lcd installed from ifixit can't swipe to open
Prior to lcd install, screen was black , new lcd turns on and lights up beautifully, can't swipe to unlock though. Have tried hard reset many times to no avail.
Check your connections on the actual led and on the logic board.
i had problem with the touch connection on the iphone 5c. It had to be just right fit to make the touch work.
If you get the click sound, then you are got good connection, if not, redo the connection.
try the old lcd, do you have the same problem with the old lcd?
