Product Overview

Cases prevent wine bottles from getting lost, important documents from blowing away, and ground sausage meat from auctioning off family heirlooms on eBay. Safeguard your valuables with our MacBook Unibody upper case today.

New option includes backlit keyboard, battery level indicator assembly, IR sensor, and battery connector cover.

Used option includes backlit keyboard but does not include battery level indicator assembly, IR sensor, or battery connector cover.

NOTE: Some 2 GHz A1278 MacBook logic boards do not have the necessary socket installed to accept the keyboard backlight ribbon cable attached to the upper case. The second and third pictures show logic boards with and without the socket installed, respectively. If your logic board does not have the backlight ribbon cable socket installed, the keyboard will work but the keys will not light up.

If your logic board does not have the socket installed to accept the keyboard backlight ribbon cable and you are installing a backlit upper case, simply tuck the keyboard backlight ribbon cable out of the way when you reinstall the logic board into the upper case.

My Problem

I don't speak english, but it's easy to understand the ifixit's guide. ;)

Del succo ACE era caduto rovinosamente sulla tastiera rendendo il tasto shift sinistro in uno stato di perenne attivazione.

Essendo praticamente impossibile sostituire solo il tasto o solo la tastiera, ho ordinato un nuovo upper case e l'ho sostituito da me.

My Fix

Tempo 2 orette e seguendo la procedura ho smontato, sostituito la parte e rimontato il macbook. Tutto è andato per il meglio e grazie alla guida non ho sbagliato neanche una vite!

My Advice

Attenzione quando si rimette il display, in particolare quando si riavvitano le 6 viti che lo fissano all'upper case.

Verificate che si chiuda bene, i bordi devono essere ben allineati.

Dividete con cura le viti tolte ad ogni passaggio, cosicché sia più facile rimontare tutto.

Io ho usato dei bicchieri numerati per suddividerle.
