Help: LCD backlight EL

I have a cracked nokia 6280 lcd screen lying around. The backlight still works. I would like to see if I can get it powered up with a power supply. Is there anyone out there who could point me in the right direction? How can I figure out what voltage/frequency it needs? Thanks.

(sometimes it's easier. On this phone LCD, there was a MARKED flex connector with A and K on it (anode and kathode of the LEDs, get it?) and nearby on the PCB are more A and K markings (though they don't show up in the pic.) Look for something like that...

Most phones these days have LED backlights, which means they probably operate off 4 V or so. The tough part it figuring our where to connect the power, and actually connecting it (!@#%% high density super-mini connectors!) The LED power is probably two of the thicker traces on the flex pcb, if that helps.
