Macbook Pro (R) 2015 No Display

Hey guys.

 

So I have just repaired my MacBook Pro by replacing the logic board, the Magsafe dock, and the screen, I have put the laptop back together, power on the laptop, and well Nothing

 

I get the start on chime, followed by nothing at all. 

The fans are spinning and the CPU/GPU are warming nicely so I am at a loss at what to do. 

 

With the screen, I replaced the glass panels, however, the LED layer is the same as before, and just like before is does not power on.

 

Any help would be greatly received

If the LED layer didn't power on before, then I'm pretty sure it might be your LED layer.

It could be pretty much anything considering you basically rebuilt the entire machine... are you sure your parts are not doa?

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Would the LED not powering on do anything other than not light up the Apple logo???

It's pretty easy to test the screen, just connect the laptop to an external display and see if it shows anything. If it does, it's a bad display. If it doesn't, there's probably an issue with the logic board.

He started out like that actually. Fixing things for himself. He grew from there. I think it's all just about how much you're willing to get into it. If a college drop out can fix Apple products, you can too. Although, you might wanna calculate down how much even the cheap equipment would come you. Having someone fixing it might still be cheaper. :D
