MacBook Pro won't turn on after display replacement
I had two broken MacBooks. One worked fine, except the display was broken. (tested on external monitor)
I just swapped a working display onto the Macbook. After replacing it the Mac is completely dead. Won't turn on, no Apple ding. Nothing.
I unplugged the battery during replacement just to be positive I couldn't short anything. No possible ideas what could have happened, but this is super depressing. What do you guys think.
Ps: I double checked everything, and cannot seem to find anything wrong with the logic board itself. Everything is plugged in.
Ok I tried the link you gave me and it started up. Both with the keyboard plugged in and with it unplugged. However, I still cannot start it with the power button. Any other ideas? Thanks
Well, I switched the working Logic board onto the top case of the other Mac I have. I can still power-up with the power-on pad, but the actual power-button us unresponsive. Idk what is going on, but "rdklnc" please let me know what you think if you read this. You seem very intelligent with this kind of issue. Thanks
Ok I am almost positive that both my top cases are broken. I tried both of them and with neither can I start it with the power button. My other Mac that does not even boot makes a little noise when using the power-on pad, but does not make any sound when trying to use the button. That tells me both the top cases are broke.
Would I need to order a new top case or would there be a cheaper option such as just replacing the keyboard or something? Thanks
Is this a good question?
