    Unhappy backlight problems, please help :/
    a long time ago my backlight went out... i took it back to walmart and they said to wait till my apple warranty was up (it was only like 2 weeks left) and they would fix it for me, so when i took it back to walmart the second time the said i need to send it to apple (now apple wants 200$ to fix it[i know i seem really stupid at this point]).

    so i left my touch go dead... and left it sit for about 3 weeks, and now when the battery is at 3% charge, and only at 3%, the backlight turns on untill it either charges to 4% or drains to 2%... anyone have any idea what the problem could be?

    Sounds like a defective LCD, you could do the repair yourself for less than what Apple would charge you. I believe though if you have Apple repair the device you could then get the Apple protection plan.
    If I helped you hit the "Thanks"!

    you can get the whole screen assembly on ebay for $60. it's really easy just to replace the screen. Look up some vids on youtube for how to.
