Why is my screen dim?

Hello

I recently repaired an iPhone 3GS. When I had connected the last of the ribbon cables, i turned the phone on. It worked, but it was extremely dim (practically black). I managed to make it to settings and adjust the brightness, but neither sliding it all the way up or all the way down had any effect. Then, when i disconnected the display and tried to connect it again, nothing was displayed at all! What could this be?

I was replacing both the LCD and the glass.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It sounds to me like a backlight issue. What were you originally repairing on it?

First, double-check the connectors.

Then, I would replace the Display first. If this does not fix the problem, signs point to the logic board, unfortunately.

it could be a bad lcd chip on the logic board. it happens a lot with liquid damaged phones. if a new lcd does not work then i would believe the chip would need to be replaced. no guarantee. it's extremely difficult to solder something that small, but we're champs at it here.
