Unable to power up after replacing Airport Card

Hi,

I followed the iFixit guide to replace the Airport card but after I replaced the top part (keyboard) I am unable to power up my computer. When I press the power up button nothing happens. Its the same scenario on battery and on power supply

Rather desperate now, any advise would be appreciated

Thanks so much!

Check the topcase connector. If this connector is not well secured in his socket the macbook can't be powered.

Yea, I have checked the orange cable, it seems secure in the socket, anyway to reinforce it? Do you think it will help?? Thanks man :)
