Fitting 2010 Display Assembly to 2011 Board
Alright iFixiters, I have a whacky one for you today..
I have a 11" 2011 MBA with a broken display. I just picked up a water damaged 2010 11" for a great price.
I have fitted the 2010 display assembly to the 2011 body, and the LCD displays properly, but the backlight is what's giving me trouble. I know that the 2011 board works and the backlight worked on the cracked panel.
Any ideas on how to get the backlight up and running? Are there major differences between the 2010 and 2011 backlight system that would prevent the 2010 panel from working natively? The panel may be broken, so not sure whats up..
Is this a good question?
