Dim display after attempted replacement :( any ideas?
I was trying to help out a friend with a cracked screen, and after about 10 minutes of tinkering I thought to check the model number on the scrap iPhone that I was using for parts- turns out that the old model was a 3G and the new one is a 3GS, which don't have compatible screen/LCD assemblies. I was trying to put the 1 2 and 3 connections back together with the 'new' (non-cracked) screen, and I'm afraid I damaged a connection somewhere. Now when I put the old cracked screen back together, the display is extremely dim and won't get brighter through 'Settings'. She already tried to reset her phone through iTunes. If I can't fix it I'm going to replace the screen out of my pocket, but I would love to not do that. Any ideas, iFix-ers?
Experience: I have performed this repair successfully multiple times previously, and am fairly comfortable within the guts of a iPhone.
Is this a good question?
