Default [Q] Replaced screen now is red on right side

Cracked screen (video was fully functional, digitizer didn't work) replaced. Upon boot the right half of the screen was full red and the left was black. The"Google" splash screen looked normal, The 4.4 swirling colored dots behaved normally with all colors showing in either half. After boot the screen displayed oddly on the right half, with some edges flickering red, some colors appeared nearly normal. I could go on but I think this is good description.

All other functions work well, including the digitizer.

I reseated the tiny video flex cable and the problem persists.

I ordered another video flex.

Has anyone encountered a similar problem? Did the video flex fix it?
