How can I find my problem? (Backlight)
I was carrying out a screen repair for my little brothers MacBook and everything was running smoothly even had the backlight working and had it all on to make sure it was fine before reassembling.
When I turned it on I noticed an awful lot of heat coming from the right hand side of the Macbook and the backlight just switched off but the keyboard lights are still on, I then turned the Macbook off by holding down the power button.
I have turned it on and tried to shine a light through the back because I understand that if it is the backlight itself I should still see some of the screen but I am not even seeing any of the LCD working now.
I unscrewed the back panel and had a look at the small fuse but it's so tiny and I cant tell if it is blown as I don't have the required tools continuity meter.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what is could be? I did buy a cheaper version of the screen from ebay, so I'm now thinking it may be the actual screen itself as my understanding is that the 2 ribbon cables I actually connect into it turns the backlight on?
*Also can I just had I can smell a burning smell from the long pin on the screen and macbook side, like it has overheat.*
Thanks for the help in advance,
Is this a good question?
