Does anyone know where to get a 6r8 coil in the U.S for the motherboard of a 3gs and know anybody that can replace it?

Why exactly is going on with your phone to make you have to replace it?

6R8 Backlight Coil for iPhone 3GS - eBay (item 230564155848 end time Jan-14-11 22:11:17 PST)
there's the link for the dude in america that is selling the coils for the 3GS.
And, always remember to check that the parts you are changing ARE in fact the same, not similar. the 3G is NOT COMPATIBLE with 3GS parts.
Sometimes having the wrong part in blows the coil OR the iDevice power button was accidently hit and turned on during installation or just didnt give a damn and didn't turn OFF the iDevice when getting ready to repair.

I have fixed multiple phones where the person said the backlight was out and a new LCD solved the problem. You could still see the images just wasn't lit up. That would definitely be the place to start.

have the same problem, 3gs water damage, no backlight, everything else works. I swapped the lcd with a working 3gs lcd and still not working. So it's the motherboard with the 6R8 coil problem. Any help on DYI directions or repair shop?

Thanks for the referral guys. Anyway, sometimes its the coil sometimes it isnt. In my experience, it is more likely the coil when the phone has been exposed to water damage of some sort. Other times, it is something else. Definitely test with a good LCD if you can. Check my blog, I have a link that details the repair, and I can definitely do the repair for you if you're up for it. Please email me for anything that has to do with pricing. Keep the threads informative rather than commercialized. Thanks!How to fix #3 CONNECTORS:
