 Post subject: 17" Top Case not Closing Properly?
PostPosted: Fri Jun 06, 2008 12:26 pm 
Having just replaced my PB's display, I thought I'd buy a new top case as well for cosmetic reasons. It installed fine, except for one little problem: it doesn't seem to fit correctly in the corners!

It does this in each of the four corners, and I can't figure out why. The old top case fits fine, but I can't make out any differences between them in the latch design. If I try to press down on a corner when it's unscrewed, it doesn't budge - almost like there's something blocking it. I looked inside the powerbook though, and it doesn't look like there's anything that could be obstructing it.

I'm utterly confused. Am I just installing it wrong or what? If anybody has any ideas, your help would be greatly appreciated. :D

Try pushing down on the corner and then screwing in the screw closest to the corner. If you are having a problem close to the LCD on the back of the unit, you likely didn't line up the LCD hinge joints properly in the grooves.
