trackpad or clicker not working on my PowerBook 12" G4 al

I just repaired my Powerbook G4 12" 1.5 GHz machine by putting in a new logic board. Everything is working fine but my trackpad is not working. I swapped another top from a machine that I know had a working trackpad. However, after replacing it, it still doesn't work. I checked the connector from the logic board to the upper case and the plug looks like it is connected. Any suggestions? I am using an USB mouse instead of the trackpad at the moment to get around the desktop.

Is this a good question?

Check the pins on the logic board connector to see if any are bent over and not connecting properly.

Glad I could help solve your problem ;-)


I just checked the pins and they don't seem to be bent. I am assuming that you are referring to the connector that you can pull with the orange thing.

Question, do the other connectors to the left have anything to do with the trackpad. They seem to be connected to their things but as far as I know, there are only three wires on the upper board.


thanks Mayer! I did a little spunger on the pins and moved them slightly. Everything is working now. thanks!
