Backlight problem on 5s

I think I need to replace the backlight filters. I've read plenty about where they are on the iPhone 5 but can't find anything on the iPhone 5s. Can anyone tell me where they are on the board and where I can buy them? Is this all I will need to replace or should I also replace the coil and ic chip.

Thank you in advance!!

I'd check around FL24, FL25, FL26 as well as the capacitors C17, C243 and C18.

Found it (I think) - FERRITE CHIP 220 OHMS 2.0A 0603

susan, the three filters are 240 OHM 0.2A 0.8 OHM in a 0201 (0603 metric) package. Available at places like this http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en...

Probably not the cheapest solution, but perhaps consider replacing the entire display assembly, digitizer en all. It's a Much Much easier job.

I already tried that. I can see the apple logo, barely, using a flashlight pointed at the display, so I think the backlight filter is blown. I'm up for replacing it/them. Can solder, just don't know where they're located. Plenty of info on the iPhone5, not much on the 5s.

Thanks!
