Welcome to the forum Rage....I'm no repair guru but, meh--it doesn't sound good. I've read often on this forum that the cable(s) can loosen/detach fairly easily, even in a light drop. Goodonya for taking it apart and getting that step done. It's not doing anything at this point? Holding down Vol & Power buttons do nothing? No shimmer or noise? Not sure what to suggest...check back tho, there are some pretty handy thinkers around--and more than a few that have done some serious repair. Cheers.
