I took out one of the cabels connecting to the logic board (the second one that you took out in the video) and I dhave tried numerous times to get it back it, but it doesn't go back. It feels like its only going in part way when I do it. Can you help me?

I was replacing g the thermal paste, but afterwards , I realized that I lost a pin inside the SATA connector on the Logic Board for the Optical drive. The optical drive powers on but no data is getting through. Is it possible to purchase only this component from PowerBook Medic as I could carefully solder a new one back onto the logic Board myself. Otherwise, I'll need an entirely new Logic Board.

Thanks for the reply. I thought it was the wifi. I broke the connector, is there a place I can buy the little plastic connector for it? Otherwise is there any way you can tell me what the order of wires is? Left to right on the connector. I could just solder it to the board... Difficult to tell in the video.

I am having difficulty finding the part for for the long cable that connects to the back of the logic board. (The last one removed in the video) I messed up the connector, is there anywhere I can find a plastic connector, and what component are these cables from? I think its from the wife airport antenna.

@d - the intro did not mention removing the top case and keyboard. The keyboard comes with the top case on these models and it requires a complete disassembly to get to the top case which this guide does cover getting to that point.
