Michael Schneider, this answer is not to diagnose your backlight issues. There is usually a reason why that fuse blows, and it usually requires a lot of current to do so. After you change your fuse, make sure that you check for other failed components and that you check for further short circuits on your board.

The fuse has reference designator F9800 and it is a 2A 32V fuse in a 0402 package.

Thank you for the info, When I replace this, if I dont still get backlight, what other component should i look at?


Good question. Ask it when you need the answer. Answering questions like this takes a lot of research time and we are just volunteers, nobody pays us to do this.


I do kind of need the answer, I replaced the fuse, and no backlighting still. The old fuse physically looked blown. I understand nobody pays you, but if you weren't going to help me out, then don't comment.
