Ipad mini Backlight comes on briefly at power on then shuts off
So I have this iPad Mini with the well known no backlight problem. In this case, the backlight comes on fine while the unit is charging, but as soon as it begins the boot process, it goes dark.
I'm wondering what component might be causing this fault. I don't believe it is the fuse because as far as I know, I would see no backlight at all.
What other components could be the culprit? And has anyone seen these particular symptoms before?
Is this a good question?
