@eric - it could be the backlight, the inverter cable, or the inverter board. Make sure the cable two wire cable from the LCD is plugged into the inverter board correctly.

It worked. I got it to turn on but the the lcd doesnt light up(although you can see applications on the screen) is it the backlight now?

@eric - it sounds like you bought a complete display. The cables have changed a bit between the years, so it is normally suggested to just replace the LCD itself and use all the same cables. Since you are wanting to do a color switch, it may be tricky, but you should be able to move the inverter board and cables from your original display and just use the black casing and the LCD.

the screen broke on my white macbook so i bought a black one (to start a color swap) but a few of the wires were different the inverter cable and the airport card. so i switched them with the old ones but the screen stays black on startup(chimes and blinks) How can i fix this? (i basically just switched LCD screens) Are they incompatible? Do the inverter switches only go to thier own inverter board? THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Bought an optical drive and it installed just fine. When I inserted the disc it, the unit did not take the disk in like normal and never read the disc. I was able to get the unit to eject it. Does this sound like I installed it incorrectly or that something else is going on?..Thank you.
