    If you didn't properly turn off the iPad before changing the digitizer ( which usually involves disconnecting the lcd) then it's likely a blown backlight filter or other component on the logic board which controls the backlight. Go to fixit.com and you will see lots of others with the same problem.

    Fixing it requires a logic board level repair which requires pro level soldering skills.
