Backlight - Where does ribbon cable coming off of the backlight go?
I replaced the LCD in my 2nd gen. Touch following your guides. Now backlight doesn't work. If you look at the back of the display with the metal plate removed you can see where the ribbon cable leaves the LCD. This part of the ribbon cable looks like a wide, upside down U with the right leg being very short and is a dead end. However, underneath there are 2 strips of solder that look like they should press against something. I do not remember disconnecting this cable and I have looked and looked and cannot see anything in the area they could make contact with. Yet they appear to go straight into the backlight assembly. It appears to supply power to the backlight. I took the old display totally apart [all the mylar sheets and reflectors and everything] and found these 2 traces are the only ones entering the backlight assemby. Do these supply the power to the backlight? If so, where do they connect to? Thank you for your time. Have a Good One! Love, Peace and Perception
Is this a good question?
