Can someone provide me info about the backlight fuse of 829-2565-A?
I am now on my way to my first solder on a MBP logic board to bring back the backlight on my display.
Logic board is 829-2565-A. MacBook Pro 13" mid-2012 i7 2.9ghz.
I accidentally dropped something on the board while fixing the hinges and have no backlight since then.
Through multiple searches on google I found it may be caused by a blown out "P" fuse near the LVDS connector. I tested the fuse and it seems blown out (no continuity).
I found a video that explains how to replace it without any crazy specialized tool (Louis Rossman video on YouTube).
I now want to try to replace the thing but I would need some information:
- what type of stuff to use to solder?
- what is the exact type of fuse, where to buy them? (From Canada)
- pitfall to avoid
- soldering advices :)
- thoughts about other things that might have caused the backlight to stop working (just in case I tested the fuse the wrong way; things to verify before starting this whole thing)
- can a damaged LBDS cable/connector cause backlight to not work?
Thanks a lot!!
