Why doesn't replacing inverter fix the backlight?
My wife's Core 2 Duo Macbook recently started having backlight problems. The light will stay on for a few seconds to minutes after waking the computer up, then shuts off. Since it shuts off without moving the screen, I thought it was probably an inverter problem, not the cable. So I ordered the part here and did the replacement.
Unfortunately, after re-assembling the computer, I still have the same problem. Is there some other explanation for my symptoms? Possibilities include:
- The inverter cable is bad (but why does it fail even when I don't move the computer?)
- The replacement inverter is also bad
Any other explanations or suggestions on what to do now?
Is this a good question?
