Dim and flickering screen after replacement?

After shattering my screen I took the liberty of replacing it myself. The screen ended up being already broke so I replaced it again and now the brightness is stuck on what seams lower than the lowest setting making it impossible to use unless in complete darkness. It sometimes will flicker at random times bringing it to a brighter setting but it never stays. I've disconnected and reattached the screen multiple times. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Have you tried another screen? If that doesn't solve your issue, then you have damaged your backlight plugging in the screen, if you forgot to unplug your battery whilst installing the new screen, then this is definitely more than likely what has happened. :-)

so would buying a new screen and installing it with the battery unplugged fix the issue or is there something else damaged that I need to replace?


You could try another screen at first, to see if it is just a bad screen, but if that doesn't work, you would need to be able to microsolder to fix the backlight issue.
