Mi Problema

Saturday morning when I started the Macbook the screen blinked then remained black.When I put a flashlight behind the screen, I could see the fish of my start up screen. I closed the computer and started several time. Sometimes the computer started correctly and sometimes not. I could use the computer with an old external screen and a VGA cable. When I searched the french web for a solution, I found that someone had fixed it by changing the Inverter with the help of IFixit. However, I should have looked a bit further and I could have found that the cable of the inverter could also be the cause of the failure

Mi Solucion

I followed the instructions online on my old IBook and appreciated the advised tools that I bought with the inverter. I must say that I enjoyed opening the computer and I took my time.It was bringing back the old the fun of the building blocks for children thought it was more easy to follow the steps on the laptop then reading a leaflet. My wife interrupted me to fix the christmas tree trunk on his support.I must say that it was a bit difficult to steady my movements and getting back to the screwdriver after handling the chain saw. I finished the job, thought, but the screen still did not lit

Mi Consejo

After looking throught Ifixit web site I found that it could be the inverter cable.I made an other bet and ordered a cable to the display inverter and I am waiting for it
