Bluetooth Module Replaced still not working

Hello, i have replaced the lcd and glass on my macbook unibody 2.4ghz, now the bluetooth isn't working, i tried all tricks like pram etc, so i got a new bluetooth/isight module from ebay, isight still works fine as before replacing the units but still bluetooth not available. anyone have any recommendations? i figured i must have static charged the bluetooth module originally which is why i figured the new one would do the trick, and its probably not the cable due to the isight still working 100 percent.

so i tried copying bluetooth.Prefpane file from my girlfriends macbook, an reinstalling bluetooth, i then can see bluetooth in preferences but after a reboot it disappears, while i can see it it does not allow me to click turn on but i can get the menu up, slow progress i guess? :)


so i couldn't find a fix, been trying for a long time, but i did purchase a 5 dollar tiny usb bluetooth dongle from ebay and it did the trick! oh well sounds like apple has to do some fixing for their bluetooth products.

Check your Airport card and make sure the bluetooth and wifi connectors are properly seated. These connector are tiny and it might seem as they are seated, but until u feel a slide thud/click, the connector might not be making proper contact with the card. Also you can try to reverse the positions of the connectors, just in case you reversed the positions by mistake.

thanks for your reply, i didn't remove these connectors while replacing the lcd, but i removed and re-seated them and heard the slight click, no change, i figure it must be something software related not hardware...tho i did try all recomended solutions to bluetooth not available on the web i don't know if theres a way i can use terminal to force bluetooth on or anything but am welcome to all recomendations.
