in fact it is a problem of bad welding in the lines. It may be due to the type of wire you use to make the bridges.

It has happened to me before.

Okay, I've found the problem. There was a short between LED_RETURN_1 and GND. It was not visible, I guess a tiny little bit of solder ran into the gap between the old and the new flex cable. I have reworked it and the backlight looks perfect now. Many thanks to tcampbell34 for the link. (y)😊
