My Problem

The display on my wife's old MacBook would darken to a black screen at the worst possible moment. The iFixit site helped me figure out it was the Display Inverter. I ordered the parts but didn't get to the task until three months later.

My Problem

Display went dark. Diagnosed problem to a display backlight inverter or data cable.

My Fix

Ifixit help guides allowed me to try an initial repair by switching parts from another MacBook that had died years ago. That operation was not successful, but based on my comfort with Ifixit's help guides, and the r . . .
