Default Nexus 7 screen won't work

I dropped my Nexus 7 a while back and never got around to fix it because I bought a 2013 n7.

But I finally got to order a complete digitizer/screen set, but the screen doesn't work, I'm able to turn the device on and everything because I can take screenshots.

Have tried reboot, checked all the connectors and they are secure and in place.

Volume button down+power.

Nothing works.
What can be the cure for my device?

On newer firmware ? I know there were different screens used during production and require upgraded firmware for the drivers. I had similar problem when I replaced my daughters broken screen. Pushed update and it worked with no problem. If your already on newer firmware than probably a bad screen or damaged the connection of the screen they are fairly delicate.
