I put a screen and glass on my iphone but it doesnt seem to be getting power to it. could it be a grounding problem. i dont have the screws yet.
I would recommend trying it out when you have all the necessary tools needed to complete the job. Until then, you leave your equipment open to ESD (electro-static discharge or static electricity) which seems harmless to humans but in actuality can virtually fry your sensitive internal components.
You might also have a faulty LCD/Digitizer/Glass combo. If this is a 2g model, then any of those components that need replacing require the entire set of 3 to be replaced to correct the issue (and not open up new ones).
On eBay many dealers sell the individual parts, but this is wrong and can further damage your iPhone down the line. The LCD/Digitizer/Glass combo is fused together from factory and any attempt to separate the combo typically ends in damaging one or more of the other components. Only the 3G (and I believe 3GS) allow for the glass to be a separate piece as the LCD/Digitizer.
If you own a 2G and bought one of these black-market individual pieces, I'd recommend you contact the seller and get a refund. They usually for about $40-80 and break more than they fix (if they work at all).
You are better off spending your money at Apple, as they will charge a $199 to fix (ie, replace your broken iPhone with a brand new model) and you'll get a 1-yr warranty out of it (along with a brand new iPhone) and no contract extensions for out of warranty replacements.
