Hi guys,

As title says, I replaced the cracked digitizer on my Samsung i8910, and now it's back together again, all works but the screen is dark. By dark I don't mean black, I mean that it is just really faint and hard to see, like the brightness has been turned right down.

Also, there are faint small horizontal flickering lines on the screen. I tried manually increasing the brightness but even at full wack, the screen is still quite "black". The colours are all still there, they're just "washed out with black".

I'm thinking perhaps I damaged the plug where the screen ribbon cable attaches to the circuit board? It kind of looks like a monitor that isn't plugged in properly. I have disassembled again and put back together but issue remains.

Any tips? Take it in to a repairer? Any recommendations in Auckland?

Cheers!

Sounds like an issue with the backlighting, either the lighting is damaged or not connected correctly

I did wonder about that, but the presence of the faint horizontal flickering lines on the screen made me wonder if it was something else?

Would a backlighting issue cause that?
