Title:

-Touch bar not responsive to touch
+Touch bar not responsive to touch and now sleep broken

Text:

Hi. can you help me? I recently replaced my Touch Bar (it was faulty). everything went well, except that now my system no dot wake from sleep. I did this test and the display went out, but it will not wake again.

If I connect an external display it briefly displays the ui on that, but goes to sleep again.

Running `ioreg -r -k AppleClamshellState | grep State` over ssh results in it saying "AppleClamshellState" = Yes even with the display open.

Where should I look for troubleshooting this?

Let me explain what happened to this computer to give a better understanding.

About a year ago I felt that the usb-c ports of my MBP2016 where a little loose.

I took to an Apple Store here in Brazil, but the genius tested with their cables on the store and said it was ok. A few months lather I got annoyed again with the ports, most because I was working from home because of the pandemic and started to use more peripherals on my MBP.

Then, in April, I opened the computer and discover that they were in fact loose (https://youtu.be/pvbQ-1pJJrg) and when I fixed I broke the Touch Bar connector.

The Touch Bar continued to show items but was not responding to touches (https://youtu.be/HGC5OYdgk-Q).

I bought a new Touch Bar from AliExpres and then opened the MBP to fix it again…

Everything worked fine as far as I could see, but after I closed it all up and went to make some checks and test if it was good I noticed that I was not coming back from sleep.

Further inspection using `ioreg -r -k AppleClamshellState -d4 | grep State` tells me that when I close the lid and then open this “flag” does not change to “No” anymore making the  MBP not identifying that the lid is open and going back to sleep.

I discover that if I disable sleep with `pmset -a disable sleep 1` I can continue to use the Mac after I open the lid, but only on a external monitor… the internal keeps its backlight off but I can see that the UI is there.

I hope I made a little more sense this time to help identify the problem and if I can fix it.

I already tried:

* Clear SMC
* Clear NVRAM
* boot in secure mode
Other photos form the computer. It was a little dusty, but I cleaned up.
