17" MacBook Pro Backlight Issue A1297
I have a mid 2010 MacBook Pro “17 A1297 with a backlight that isn’t working. I was working on the laptop when the backlight cut out.
Here is what I’ve done so far:
Reset SMC = Nothing
Plugged into an external display: Image is shown on the external display and the primary is shown in system preferences.
Tested Backlight Fuse: Backlight fuse has continuity.
'''Test for shorts: Tested for short circuit using the advice from No backlight, fuse blown? Works fine except backlight! A1398
Nothing looks wrong on the board and there isn’t anything obvious to me to suggest anything wrong.
Before I blow a lot of money I wanted to see what others would think of the situation!
Thanks so much!
Is this a good question?
