Lenovo y510 Black is red on the Display with red dots/streaks

Recently, i replaced the hinges on my computer.  After i finished putting the computer back together, I booted it up.  As soon as the lenovo screen came up, the background was red and not black same with the windows screen.  Once i logged on my computer, the background has red dots/streaks all over it.  The color blue is also too light and messed up.  I tried replacing the lcd and it did not fix anything.  Therefore, i believe it has to be the Lcd cable or the inverter.  Not quite sure which one it is.  BTW it works fine with an external monitor hooked up.   Please help! Thanks

.
When you replaced hinges, you may have pinched the cable.
Try again, being careful how you route the cable,
and inspect for any damage, however small.

Thanks for the response.  Do you have any idea of what cable might have been pinched?  Im figuring that it was the cable that runs to the lcd.

Yes, most likely.
