replaced optical drive and trackpad, but lost camera and wifi

Hi there,

Using your great iFixit guides I successfully replaced my trackpad, optical drive, and battery. After putting it back together however I lost the camera and wifi. Before going full bore and replacing the wifi card, is there a connector that I might have missed that handles both?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Since you provided a generic identification for your machine I can't give you a specific answer... but I think you should recheck all your connections - that they are square and completely "snaped" in or that the ribbon connections are right way up, fully and squarely inserted and the cams locked down. If you have the Mid 2009 Anti-Glare display 15" MacBook Pro Unibody (a custom-to-order option), that card is in the case assembly - and you could have a nicked or improper connection. I think you have that version of laptop.
