Default [Q] is my new screem bad?

i just received the screen i bought to replace on my Verizon G2 (VS980) and just installed it, when i went to turn it on this is what the screen displayed, good thing i did not glue it down, but i tried connecting the cables again but still get the same thing. have you ever seen this?

sorry about the pic quality i had to use my laptops webcam.

That might just be a bad screen are you sure the cables are all correctly plugged in

Going to sound really weird. When you reassembled the phone your white antenna cable near the bottom of the phone crosses over a connection right before it plugs in. Is that connection covered with a non conductive material or no? Reason I ask is that I have recently performed this repair myself and ran into an issue similar to this. Believe it or not but shielding that connection from the antenna cable with a piece of electrical tape fixed the crazy acting screen I had.

Here's a link to the thread I had with a video how to I found.

i actually watched that to do this repair and found out about this when i put my cracked screen back about that. so i tried putting the other one back in and nothing. so i already contacted the seller and will be getting a refund, and this time will just make sure i buy a screen with a Verizon logo on it, then i should work, also for some reason now my speaker is not working.

ok thanks, when i ordered the one i organically bought i took a chance. The annoying this is i could find any information online about the screen being universal with all models and i took a chance with the one i bought that said compatible with all models.

Ya I tried to cheap out and initially bought a screen without an LCD.
