Replaced LED Display, appears DOA. Troubleshooting help?
My Macbook pro 15" had a failing LED (A1226 display). Physically pressing the right side of the physical display would sometimes made it function, but usually the bottom 1/2 to 2/3 of the display would not be useable. It used to be that sticking a dew slips of paper in the right side bezel would make it work. Ordered a replacement LED display, installed, and ...nothing. It looks like power is there (right at the power-up chime, there is a very slight change of color of the LCD. A bright light behind the display (in the translucent Apple) shows there is not data on the screen. Screen brightness up/down does nothing. reconnected the old display, functions like before. Installed following good ESD practices.
Any ideas other than a DOA LED display?
Is this a good question?
