New screen works but dark

History

I'm trying to get the new screen that I installed to brighten up. I can see the screen contents using a light source but have not had any success. Thanks for your time in helping me with a possible solution.

Please give us the last three figures of your serial number so we know which machine you have and get you a correct answer.

The last three of your serial number come back as a 15" Intro Date: February 24, 2011 Disc Date: October 24, 2011 Order No: MC721LL/A Model No: A1286 (EMC 2353-1*) Subfamily: Early 2011 15" Model ID: MacBookPro8,2 Std RAM: 4 GB Std VRAM: 256 MB* Std Storage: 500 GB (5400 RPM) Std Optical: 8X DL "SuperDrive" Double check on that.

yep it seems that your screen inverter is out of order...

This would be a very good answer if the MacBook Pro 15 Unibody used a LCD or an inverter. The LED backlighting doesnt have an inverter like the ccfl backlight does (this is one of the advantages of led technology).

mayer,

Yes, exactly what I meant to say:-) If I would have any up-or-downvotes left I'd use it today; been working on to many backlights lately.

Did you get part #661-5847? Does your machine work OK with an external monitor? What was the source of your replacement?
