Question [Q] Desire screen lights up, but nothing on it.

Hello,
HTC Desire got applied pressure on screen and it went dark. Nothing cracked. Still could answer calls and power phone down using touchscreen.
Then it was laying in a drawer for about a year.
After I tried to power on again(without SIM card) the lcd kind'a lighted up, vibrated once and after a while buttons lighted up, but there was nothing on screen. Pressing power button just turned button lights on and off.
So, obviously, I thought let's get that screen replaced As it turned out, I ordered Samsung AMOLED screen, but apparently, mine was SONY picture (bad quality, shaky-shaky hands)
New screen doesn't light up when I power on phone, but it still vibrates once and then buttons lights up.
Checked all the connectors, reassembled many times, but it's still the same.
p/n is 99HKZ010-00 which should have amoled, right?
Should I try my luck and order exactly the same screen(SONY) and hope that there isn't any other fault, like faulty board or connections?

The box doesn't say if its amoled or super tft. Just 3.7-inch touch-sensitive screen.

Update:
well I can just delete myself
phone kinda works - I can start it, get pass lockscreen, can hear UI sounds when I press somewhere, in fastboot mode it gets detected..
So, I guess I just have to get right lcd replacement thingy and rock on!

Theres ur answer. If it doesnt say anything then its lcd. If it were amoled it would say 3.7-inch touch-sensitive AMOLED screen.
