@Jasper - Do you know if it is booting up but you just can't see anything? Like if you adjust the volume after a minute can you hear the volume sound? If so it is most likely an issue with your display, display cable, the connection to the logic board, or the GPU.

I replaced my A1297s logic board with a reconditioned one. I bought on eBay my idea was to then send you my logic board for repair so that I have a backup. But now the machine is not working. 1. When I press the power button it does not react at all - battery shows 3 green points. 2. When I connect power the machine gives Apple sound and fans start running. Battery shows it is charging. But no screen nothing. I do not just want to take everything out again in a mindless fashion. Any ideas where to search.

This is the right Apple Reportedly Set to Launch new Mac Mini with iPad Mini | Think Tek journal for anoyne who wants to seek out out almost this substance. You request so overmuch its near wearing to present with you (not that I really would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new prolong on a message thats been typewritten nigh for age. Overnice lug, simply uppercase!

@Mauro - we have a separate video for the 13-inch glass and LCD removal. You can use that as a guide. It is similar.

I have a 17inch MacBook Pro. some water got in and now it won't turn on. Where do you recommend, getting a new board from? The battery meter shows full battery. When I press the power button, to computer does not do anything. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Guide neglects to mention anything about wireless card or the connector.

@Sunil - that would typically be an issue with the backup (PRAM) battery, but I believe on that model it is built into the main battery, so that may need to be replaced.
