Do you have the SD card in?
Is the ribbon cable the right way? If you have the connectors facing up, the blue ends of the ribbons should be up like so:

Have you checked continuity of all your soldering connections with a multimeter?

Is there anything else you have tried?

If you can't be bothered to read the thread with the likely fix or the wiki why should we bother repeating everything that is already there?

Go have a look at the wiki for the fixes and if you can't fix it then send it back to me and I'll fix it as long as YOU did not break the LCD like messing up the ribbon or LCD screen being cracked and any damage to the pcb.

If not do as I said send it back to me undamaged and I can fix it, if the screen works for me then the issue is your soldering.
