No Backlight After Screen Repair

I managed to crack my screen. I replaced it with a new screen provided by the famous iFixit.com

When I put it back together, I lost the backlight. I can see the very dim screen. The digitizer works fine.

Anyone have the location and/or fix for the backlight fuse on the new Mini Retina? I see that there is a fix for the 1st gen Mini. Can't find one for the new retina model anywhere on the interwebs.

Thanks.

Update

Well. I knocked out the wrong IC. Before, I would turn on the ipad and the Apple logo would flash nice and bright, then it would dim and continue the boot up.

Now, I turn it on and the Apple logo is immediately dim but I continues with the boot up

Oh well. Maybe in the future ill be able to get a new circuit board. The ipad was only 2 weeks old.

Nope--haven't seen a mini 2 yet, but if you find the diode leg, you can probably find the fuse by testing for continuity from the leg to the fuse, then from other side of fuse to the LCD.

I've been doing a lot of iPad mini backlight repairs lately, feel free to ask any other questions.

Found the backlight fuse for the mini 2 retina display!

Ok so, I have a Backlight Repair kit. Comes with IC, Filter and Coil. However, where the Filter would be, is blown to a point where the copper that the Filter would be soldered onto, is missing. Wouldn't be such an issue and could be delt with soldering a wire to where ever the Copper feed runs to on the circuit board. However, we don't know where it runs to and we need a schematic of the circuitry to find out.

Does anyone have a link or any information that could help us with this?

I gave advice on this under your comment in the question Screen stays black after digitizer replacement

hi jessabethany you said you found it but have post a photo somewhere?

Honestly iPad mini retina rarely has blow backlight fuse--it is not sensitive like the original mini. If it is blown it will look burned under the microscope. If not you probably have led damage and/or need a hard reset
