Is this Backlight diode showing the correct reading?
I recently purchased this Ipad 2 A1396 as I was certain I could get it working again. With little experience behind testing filters and fuses I wanted this to be a learning experience.
The main issue is that the backlight is not on, causing the screen to display dim. So before I go out and shell out the extra money on an LCD that may possibly or may not fix the issue, I'd like to start with testing the circuit. As far as the research shows it's that the coil or filter are the usual suspects.
So I pulled out the handy multimeter and test the coil first. Looks good to me as the circuit completed with a long beep. Now when I test the filter/fuse I get no beep at all. Before I go ahead and replace. Is there anything else I should check for? Or do you know of a way to bypass this and should I?
Also thank you for all your previous help.
Is this a good question?
