    So, my backlight isn't working now. I just replaced the digitizer myself....everything else works perfectly fine, except no backlight.

    Now, the backlight is from the LCD, right? not the digitizer?
    so im pretty sure i may have damaged the ribbon cable from the LCD in the process of removing the battery...damn glue...it was so hard to get off

    so i just need to be certain that its the LCD...and maybe if anyone has any suggestions?

    I even tried changing the settings and everything for the brightness...but did absolutely nothing.

    thanks a lot in advance!

    No it is not the digitizer, the digitizer is just the glass part covering the LCD. You should take it to an Apple Store, or wherever you bought it and have them send it in to get fixed or replaced.
