Problem with replaced Logic Board

I've replaced my MacBook Logic Board, but the screen is black. If I tilt the screen all the way down and shine a light on it, I can see the desktop. I guess this is a back-light failure? If anyone has a solution or a suggestion on how to proceed here, I'd be very grateful, since I would hate to have wasted the money I've spent on fixing my comp, and not being able to finish. Thanks for help!

Hey, they say "Better late than never" :)

Anyways, I found enough time to play with my MacBook again and this time it works. I don't know where the problem was the first time, but everything's OK, except the DVD unit. I also upgraded the RAM to 4GB, and it works like a charm.

Just wanted to follow up on my previous post, thanks again for all the help!

Sounds to me like you have a bad inverter or bad inverter cable. Here's how I replace it: MacBook Core 2 Duo LCD & Inverter A1181 (fast method) Replacement

Is there a reason you replaced the logic board first?

You check my diagnostic hook it up to an external monitor.

Hi there, thanks for a quick response!

The reason why I replaced the Logic Board first is that the computer was dead Replacing logic board from E-bay another thing is, the MacBook doesn't recognize my DVD unit anymore, but I assume I must have not connected it back properly after putting it back together.

I guess I'll get a new inverter with the cable and try to replace them and post back how it went. Thanks again for help, talk to you soon!
