No backlight what did I do????
« on: June 18, 2014, 06:07:24 PM »
Ok so I hard bricked my Nexus 7 and ended up buying a new main board for it. I installed the new main board and didn't think it worked because it still wouldn't power up. Or so I thought. Anyway seems that it did work because as I was putting it down I realized I could very faintly see the word Welcome on the screen. My question is what did I do wrong to make the screen so dark? There is no backlight at all. I double checked all the ribbons and they seem to be connected 100%. Is it possible the battery is just really low???

Cover it with a blanket, or take it into a closet.  Go into Settings > Display > Brightness, and swipe the indicator over to the right.
