iMac A1418 late 2013 - no backlight, display ok, backlight circuit

Hi all,

as I went through several threads on ifixit and none of them covered my issue I hope someone might be able to help me with the following issue of an iMac A1418 late2013.

To make things short, the iMac works perfectly fine except of the backlight. All 4 status LEDs light up, the machine works flawless with an external monitor. So I narrowed down the issue to the logicboard/ backlight circuit, where I found a capacitor to be missing (I thought this should be it already - but no…)

The display itself is fine as tested with another board.

After replacing the missing capacitor from a donor board, the backlight remained faulty. I was checking the FB8108 as recommended by another thread and it indeed was having a quiet high impedance 80kohms (referece board showed 0.4/continuity). Moreover Q8102 showed 9V instead of 12V which has been healed by replacing FB8108.

Although I think the solution cannot be too far from here, currently I am clue less where to look next for the culptit.

Any advice will be highly appreciated.
