Completely Dead MacBook Pro After Keyboard/Top Case Replacement

I just followed this repair guide: MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2010 Upper Case Replacement

I bought a used MacBook Pro (Mid 2010) 13-Inch with a bad keyboard. This isn't my first time repairing a Mac. I've worked with Macs and iPhones before. The MacBook Pro was in good working order, it worked great except for the missing key on the keyboard.

Anyway, I've double checked all my connections multiple times. When I plug in the charger, I get no indicator lights. The battery indicator lights on the side of the laptop don't turn on. I know the battery has at least 80% charge, but it won't turn on with power cable attached or on battery power.

I tried to reset the SMC like 10 times. Nothing. It's like a giant paperweight.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Score 1


Just to clarify, is there any sound coming from the laptop when you hold down the power button? And when you replaced the keyboard, was it a completely new keyboard installed on the new uppercase or did you transfer it from the old uppercase?
