    Anybody know for sure? I put this in the general forum since it's not a phone-specific question. For further details though it's a Motorola A855 and I just replaced a cracked LCD panel Friday, it worked all weekend (albeit still with the jumping screen I had also) so I was planning o order a new digitizer as well. Now out of nowhere today the screen went black, but I can hold a flashlight to it and see the screen still so the LCD still functions but is the backlight in the LCD itself or digitizer?

    Thanks!

    backlight is part of the lcd, as the back light is behind the actual lcd panel.
