I presume the narrow ribbon cable supplies power to the backlight behind the screen? I replaced the combined screen and backlight assembly. I now have an image but it is extremely dark, barely visible. Perhaps the backlight didn't come on?

The contacts on both the wide ribbon and the narrow ribbon were corroded, probably the source of the problem.

Any suggestions?
