    I have an iPad 2 here that has had its LCD display and digitiser replaced and now the backlight doesn't work. I've searched and searched for a possible fix. I have reset it and also restored through itunes. I have ordered a new LCD ribbon cable to replace that incase that's the problem but it's not looking good. Any suggestions? :(

    I've got the exact same problem with my iPad, did you find a solution for this?

    Sounds like it still may be covered under the warranty. Any Apple stores nearby? If not go to the site and look for support or a phone number. If you had the display and digitizer replaced, where did you send it?

    I replaced it myself, therefore I don't think it will be covered under warranty.
    Meanwhile I discovered that the LCD backlight chip on the mainboard is probably broken, which is most likely caused by creating a short-circuit while disconnecting the LCD connector with my metal spudger.
    But I found a repair service that can repair my mainboard.
