Another LCD vs Inverter Question
I am refurbing an old Macbook 2,1 (a1181) that had a cracked LCD. Despite the crack, the machined functioned and the LCD was receiving images, albeit unreadable for the most part, but it was fine with an external monitor.
I bought a used LCD on ebay and installed it last night.
The screen lights up to a medium grey, but no graphic output goes to the new screen. External Monitor still works fine.
I've tried the video cable that was provided with the LCD and the existing video cable. I've reset the PRAM and the SMC all with no results.
My view was that the inverter, cable, logic board are fine, since it lights the cracked LCD.
The provider believes the LCD to be tested as OK, but will take a return, but asked me to replace the inverter first. I have one ordered, but I don't believe it will fix it. I tried to read all the posts on this problem and tried the ones I could try.
Is this a good question?
