iPhone 5 Black screen (Damaged)

I am currently fixing someones iphone and everything works except for the LCD screen, there is sounds, i can get into DFU/Recovery and back out again.

I'm just confused as to what to look for with the damage, I have alot of spare parts but I can't find the damage anywhere. the connector looks fine, I have tried 3 different screens and same problem.

I also tried de-powering and changing the battery.

Does anyone know what it could be in the Middle Housing area?

Help would be great thanks, or I'm up for 500 for another one
