1. How does the iPhone LCD Screen Backlight Dim Occurred?


First of all, we need to know something about the iPhone LCD screen’s composition. The LCD screen consists of eight layers, but only three layers relate closely to the image forming and animation of the screen. The backlight panel is one of the three layers. It is an LED light panel that allows the phone screen to be seen in the dark. When this light panel fails for lighting up, you will see a very dark screen and dim images, which can only seem under strong light. The reasons why this happened are complicated. For one side, some of the low-quality LCD screens are manufactured from third-party factories. These high-copy iPhone screens are not matched with the original screen on the electrical characteristics. The high-copy screen requires much more electric power loss than the original screen. When the backlight circuit is overloaded, it would be damaged and not working. On the other side, some physical damages to the iPhone screen may also cause the screen backlight panel to fail for lighting up after the iPhone LCD screen replacement.
