Answer to "No backlight, black screen. Image visible with torch."U1502 backlight IC was the culprit. Went through five of them from AliExpress which were all faulty, so beware. Bought one from a UK repair centre on eBay that uses the supplied ICs in their own repairs and it fixed the backlight. However, the phone now loops on the Apple logo continuously. I have no idea why. I’ve just changed Tristar but it’s still looping.
