ADVENT 8115 - Plugged LCD Inverter in incorrectly - now screen is dark

I had to replace the screen on my Advent 8115 and unfortunately I plugged the LCD Inverter cable from the screen incorrently (pink and white cable) and when I powered the laptop up the Inverter let out a small flash/spark.  I have now plugged the inverter board in correctly and now the screen is dark.  Does this mean that the inverter board is now faulty ?  or have I damaged the screen/backlight by plugging screen in incorrectly ?
