Ok, finally after such a hiatus, I received all the necessary parts for repair. Did the LVDS cable first, no bueno. Next, swapped out the display and still nothing. So i took out the old logic board, I re-did the thermal paste on the replacement board since i had it out w/ MX4 ( heard great reviews about it) and hooked everything back up. BOOM, now it works flawlessly. I would like to personally thank you fine people that helped me out with this matter. It def was a logic board issue, I am attempted to contact the repair company that supposedly repaired it the first time to have them fix the old one or either refund the fee. Thanks again!!!! Matt
Thanks guys for all your help, I ran thru the diagnostics in the repair guide which was extremely helpful btw. Now i'm just waiting on the slow mail to get across the pond to the sandbox so I can get to cracking on this repair. I figured first thing is I will try to hook up the new display straight to the logic board before installing it and see if i get a picture, if not then I go into replacing LVDS cable, if nothing then I just replace logic board which i have already acquired. By the time this thing is said and done, I will rebuild this entire macbook on my own! Again, thanks...I'll keep you guys posted on the outcome!!
