    Sounds like the job was poorly done.

    Sounds as if a connection was left undone.

    It's possible you accidentally damaged the connector for the touchscreen when you installed it. It could also be a loose connection. In either case the iPad would likely have to be opened up again to check.

    This is part of what you have to deal with when you go inside. Might was well finish the job. Don't feel bad, though, this could have happened to anyone doing inside for the first time.
