Replaced HDD, no power, Other: LB squeal
Really hoping someone, somewhere, is still active on this thing..
So. I mussed the HDD on my 80 gb Video and ordered a replacement. Got the replacement, installed it, and the Logic Board started to squeal when the side battery cable is plugged in. Also managed to disconnect one of the little wires to the corner plug. So figuring something was up with the Logic Board, I went and purchased a working 30gb Video. Now granted, I hadn't plugged the thing in, but it turned on and worked just fine. Gently opened it up and switched out the HDD. Checked connections, closed it up. Now it won't get any power, even when plugged in, no computer detection, nothing. Switched the 30gb back in. Still nothing. I know the battery the 30 came with is good and had half a charge on it. And I'm pretty sure my old 80gb's battery is good too as it was previously working as well.
I've checked the board. No sign of disconnects or damage. Screen works when plugged into the bad LB. I have three HDDs, but none of them are accessing through either device.
I'm sort of bummed here. I have a new battery on the way (it was to be a backup), but my hopes really aren't high.
Any suggestions would be immensely appreciated.
Is this a good question?
