@Radu - Are you getting a picture on the LCD but just very dim? If not, it's more likely a LCD or logic board issue. If you do see a dark picture and just not backlight, it can be the backlight on the LCD itself, the inverter cable, or a bad replacement inverter board in most situations.

Just received my inverter for the backlight screen and installed it but still no light. I took it apart and checked all the cables from the mother board to the inverter and to the screen and they seem to be fine. Do you guys have an idea what it could be? Thanks in advance

If you just recently replaced the screen, verify the connection. I just swapped mine out last night and it was black, but if I put a light over the screen, I could see every thing. Today I pulled off the inverter cover and pushed the connection in fully and I felt it connect. It then lit up.

my MacBook (13-inch Mid 2007) wouldnt turn on so i was told to take battery out and put on charger cord and told me to hold shift control options and hold power, and it cuts on but the screen wont cut on

@Emah - you can check and see if it is booting up by adjusting the volume and seeing if you can hear the sound. If it is booting it is more likely to be an inverter board or LCD issue. If it is not booting, it is more likely to be the logic board. There are a lot of possibilities so it may be best to get it professionally diagnosed if you don't have access to parts to test.

My MacBook keyboard lights up but my screen is just black I've tried everything and it won't light back up what do I do because I have only used my MacBook a few times so it should be working?

Greetings. anyone ever update the 1811 to 4gb of memory - but get a black screen, solid light and no chime on attempted startup? When I use 1 2gb chip and 1 512mb chip it works great... but nothing works when both 2 gb chips are in. I've swapped chips and it's not the memory. stumped. Thanks for a response?
