    I recently installed a new screen on my 3gs. After trying to get it to fit I realized they had sent me a iPhone 3g screen so I waited for the correct screen to arrive and installed it. Now my backlight will not work. I looked at my 6r8 coil and it did not appear to have any issues. Is there a cable that could cause this or should I try getting another new screen, maybe the ribbon has an error in this one? Any ideas?

    The 6r8 went bad

    You would need to solder it out and replace it. Google search "replace 6r8"
