Broken my camera cable... and my Mac is dead.


I was replacing the drive with an ssd on my MacBook Pro 15 Unibody Early 2011,

and I broke the camera cable.

See photo in detail, the second photo, step 5.

I pulled too hard ... sigh ...

I don't understand the why, my mac will not turn on more...... it's only a camera cable no?!

I press the power button but no response from the mac ....

I am very sad,

beacause this operation I had already done with success

with my old black macbook 13 ....

I went to the Apple store in my city and do not want to fix it ...

Accept any answer and I thank ...

Hello Andrea,

Your MacBook is not turning on because the computer is failing the Hardware Check when it runs at initial start-up. You must replace the iSight camera cable before it will function again. Sorry to hear the bad news.
