    My wife's iPad 2 screen is dark. If I use a flashlight I can I see the icons & get it to do anything else but there is no backlight at all.

    Looks like you'll need to get another Air. I don't think getting a replacement for $200+ will be worth it. :p

    There are a few things that could be happening here.

    - Need a hard reboot (Hold Power and Home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds)

    - Loose LCD cable or LCD cable replacement

    - LCD Replacement

    - LCD Backlight Converter went out(There are companies out there that will replace this for you at roughly $80, but you need to safely remove the glass for them)

    Best of Luck!
