Black LCD after boot screen (Replacement LCD).
I just replaced the LCD Screen on my MacBook Pro (A1151), following the ifixit guide. My issue is as follows:
The replacement screen I purchased (Samsung LTN170WP-L02 WSXGA+ (1680x1050) is supposed to be a direct OEM replacement for the original LG Screen (LP171WE2 TL A2); however, it apparently is not. Both are WSXGA+ (1680x1050) CCFL.
The apple boot screen comes up, but when OSX boots the screen goes black.
The back light works.
External Monitor works.
Is there a driver that needs to be installed or do I need to purchase the original part?
Is this a good question?
