Replaced Screen, No Backlight, Swapped Back, Still no Backlight
I have a MacBook Pro A1226 with Glossy Display. My backlight still worked, but was flickering and looked like every other light was lit most of the time (striped lighting from the bottom.) A friend said he has a MBP that was the same age as mine that the nVidia chip died and never got it fixed, so I could have his screen. So I took my laptop apart, replaced the screen with his, turned it on and there was no backlight. I checked the display shining a flashlight through the Apple logo and there was a picture, just no light. So further checking his MacBook Pro model (which I should have done in the first case), his was a A1260. So I put my screen back in because though flickering, it was working. Now my screen has no backlight working, but the image does work (again, flashlight through Apple logo.) I've tried resetting the PRAM/SMC/PRAM. Any clues what's going on here? Did I fry something on my motherboard by using the wrong display?
Is this a good question?
