Screen replacement causing problems
I replaced the LCD on an A1181 macbook. To do this I released the hinge covers that allowed the screen and lid to pop out. I replaced the screen and tested it with no clutch cover on. New screen works a treat. When I put clutch cover back on and re-assembled the screen is blank. Without the clutch cover the screen works perfectly when re-assembled. Thoughts?
I would go over all the cables with a magnifier to be certain there's no nick or cut that is shorting out against the frame. Tape down the ribbon connector securely so that you can rule out it's movement disconnecting it. Ensure there's no "torque" to the cables as you connect them to rule out that pressure breaking contact.
