    Hello

    Ive been having issues with my lcd backlight ... I stopped working after a fall and the digtiizer was also cracked..


    so I got the new parts, the new digitizer works no problem, along with the home button, sound , wifi ect ..
    but the new LCD does not light up.. this is after factory resets its acting just like the old one.......

    anyideas ?

    thank you

    The backlight is integrated into the LCD, but the inverter circuitry that powers the backlight is on the main logic board. If you're hitting the same issue with a new LCD, I'd guess that your old screen was fine and you need a new logic board.

    Something like this. But make sure you get one thats the exact same type & size of yours.
