Replaced thermal paste, MacBook turns on, keyboard/ mouse doesn’t work
I replaced my thermal paste on my 2020 MacBook Pro and it turned on perfectly fine,
But my keyboard and mousepad don’t work now. I’ve rechecked if everything was plugged in. Yes, I’ve tried resetting the SMC but nothing. I’ve took it apart again and did it from zero and same response.
I’m very lost on what to do and need help! Please and thank you
Is this a good question?
Check the connectors that join the flexible strips to the circuit boards. Normally you can wiggle each connector to remove and install it. But sometimes the flexible strip can move out from th back of the connector. The strip might be a friction fit or there might be a moveable arm on the connector body. Make sure every strip and every connector is seated where it should be.
