How do I test the backlight circuit?

So I don't know if I should buy this but I probably will. It is a iPod touch 4 with no backlights. As far as I know, it had no water damage. Where would I test things on the board? Any backlight filters, fuses, diodes, etc. I should check?

The iPod Touch's are difficult to troubleshoot at a board level because there are no known schematics (if someone has them, please share a link!).

That said, I'm certain the circuit is very similar, if not identical, to the iPhone 3GS/iPhone 4. You just need to figure out where on the logic board these parts located. Always start with the filter, then diode, then coil, then driver IC.

Do you know which one is the filter?


Sorry, no. That's my point, with no schematic I can't tell you for certain. Look at the schematic of the 3GS/4 and see what the IC is for the backlight circuit. It's probably the same IC for the Touch. The coil, diode and filter are usually right next to it.
