    Well, tryin to fix the home button some time ago, I mustve damaged the ribbon cable or the LCD itself because now I have no backlight at all. My question, is there anywhere I can get just LCD for under $40? I don't mind ordering for out of country.

    Keep in mind though that my iPod had the same problem and I replaced the digitizer and LCD and it still wasn't working

    The digitizer is just the glass.
