No backlight on MacBook Pro 820-5482-a
Hi, I usually repair iphone logicboards and have no problems with replacing most ic's and trouble shooting, but when it comes to macs im a bit of a noob. Half the problem seems to be actually finding a boardview and schemetic for this board otherwise I would have a fair idea where to check etc on it.
So the customer somehow managed to bend the hinges back on the screen and damaged it. I bought in a new screen unit for it and I now get a screen on it, but there is no backlight and the apple logo is not lit up.
Usually I would just go to the likes of zxwtool or my schematics for that board if it was an iphone and check voltages etc, but I see on the mac schematics they dont actually include a board layout on them, and I cant find any either, so does anyone know what the voltages are for this circuit, where I need to be checking them, or components to test etc ?. I have found what I think is probably the backlight fuse, and it appears to be ok. So im guessing its possibly the backlight driver or the lcd driver ic, but a google search for ic numbers brings up things like regulators, power supplies etc, but it doesnt say what for, e.g backlight circuit.
I have inspected the lvds connector under microscope and it seems to be fine, so im guessing the act of snapping the screen off has killed something in the backlight circuit.
Is this a good question?
