So I'm currently trying to fix my moms water damaged iphone. Everything seems to work except the backlight. But its not just a broken backlight. When I first plugged it in after the battery had died it seemed to work. Until after charging for a while it auto turned off then the backlight stopped working. I let it sit for a while and then the backlight worked. Until I turned it off again. This time I waited for it to turn back on, set it to never auto-lock. And the backlight never stopped working. Until it was fully charged and I tried turning it off. At that point the backlight would not turn back on. Also during this whole process, reseting it, power cycling it, and a complete firmware restore has not changed the condition.
