Title:

Display still dark after new display and board

Text:

I have a MacBook A1181 2.0GHz mid 2007 with a dark display (random).  I could make it work by putting the brightness the whole way down and then back up again, but that stopped working.  I put another, known good, display on it and that didn't help.  So, I put in a new logic board.  It worked until I closed the lid and opened it back up.  Now it's dark again and I can't get it to go bright again.

I have read that another problem part could be the inverter cable, but isn't that connected to the display?  If I put on a new display that would mean the inverter cable would be o.k., right?

I'm at a loss now as to what to check/replace.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
