Question about Apple MacBook Mac Notebook

1 Answer

I dropped my laptop in my garden and had trouble closing it. I thought that a piece of mulch had gotten trapped in the hinges so I tried to get it out. Unfortunately, I cut what I believe is the inverter/isight cable not really sure of the name but it runs long side the three (gray, blue & black) WiFi cables. Anyway, the backlight no longer works but I can still the screen when I shine a light in the back of the display. What I really need is the correct name of this cable so I can order the part.

SOURCE: I changed my macbook screen,

This could be a backlight issue, an inverter issue or a logic board issue. Look at the screen closely, if there is a faint image it's either a backlight issue or inverter issue. To weed out between the two you can just order on inverter, they're 20 bucks on ebay, if that doesn't work, replace the backlight. Maybe the new screen was not wrapped right when it was shipped, that can easily break the backlight bulb. make sure you connected the inverter to the white and pink wires correctly. Backlight repairs are somewhat difficult. As much as I would like to be able to tell you a quickfix that will solve backlight the problem, it's a pretty arduous repair that requires 1-2 hours for a trained person. It's feasible to do it yourself if you're tech savy, but you'll most likely have to google for guides that show you exactly how to replace the backlight step by step. I work for Mac Repair NYC and i have to fix this problem a lot, it's so easy to break the lightbulb in the process.

This is very likely due to a problem with your video card, you can use Apple's Hardware Test to make sure though. You can find detailed instructions on how to use AHT here. If it is found to be, in fact, the video card; you may want to replace it. Find the exact specs of your specific Macbook (perhaps on the Apple website), find the exact model of your card and buy it from the manufacturer or a place like newegg, it should not be too difficult to replace.

Oven door not shutting fully

Make sure there is nothing trapped at the bottom of the door to prevent it closing properly.
If nothing obviously wrong, then you will probably need to replace both oven door hinges as the door springs are probably weak.

Del 1525 webcam not recognized. Re-installed software, no luck. Is it fried?

Usually these kinds of problems are caused by the webcam cable going bad or shorting out on the hinges. These wires are usually run very close to the moveable part of the hinge and they can get rubbed or pinched in the hinges pieces. Sometimes the cables just go bad and need to be replaced. Other times if the laptop is dropped or shocked in some way, it is feasable that the cable may come loose from the socket on either the camera or the motherboard where it plugs into.

My frigidaire refrigerator door is sticking. I have to lift it up to close it. I have moved everything off the door and it still sticks

Sounds like the door hinges have gotten loose and let the door drop. With the door open can you move the door up and down? If hinges are tight you should NOT be able to.

Can't get the oven door back on. it was sitting

As you said they are spring loaded so be careful. You will need to pull on the hinge, which takes some muscle and you should see a small hole to put a pin or small screwdriver in to hold the hinge out. When this is in place on both the hinges you can put the door back on. This is the most common hinge style on Wpl or there may be tabs on the tops of the hinges to hold the hinge out. If the door still does not close all the way after getting the hinges all the way on you will need to take the door apart and replace the hinge/spring assy. Thanks for rating me after you read this.
