2008 X5 E70 LCD 8.8' display screen has stopped working

Brand new to the forum. I have been reading threads left and right. It seems this is a huge issue for the E53 but very few threads on the E70. Here is the issue: my 8.8 display has completely died. The radio and Bluetooth work normally. Which leads me to think its an isolated display problem. So I ordered a brand new Sharp OEM display from Ebay ($200). It arrived today and I installed it. However my screen is still black.

Does that mean it has something to do with my circuit board, backlight inverter, etc? My next thought is to take this to an professional TV repair place and have them test the circuit board.

Suggestions? Who has solved this problem?

I had a similar issue on my display but mine was loosing pixels and I just refurbished it.Sent it to UK because I was living in Bulgaria back then.But this one I am talking about was for another car not BMW.Do a research on it.
