Using your PCB layer pictures, I've traced the PWL signal to the 6-pin
IC near the SPCA. The IC label reads "A3-90E", and considering the
inductor right next to it, I'm guessing that it's a boost converter
for the backlight LED. I'm sure you saw this IC too when you were
figuring the BL out - were you perchance able to figure out the full
name / part # of this IC, or maybe even find a datasheet for it?

I thus gather that you had (most of) the actual pinout figured out at
some point. Would you perchance still have it somewhere in your notes?
