Question about Apple MacBook 13"White /2.0Ghz Intel Core2 Duo White/2GB (2x1gb)/80GB/SuperDrive (Z0DT) Mac Notebook
Screen will not come on and stays black. No noise.
Here it is in a nutshell....if you are not hearing any noise from the machine then it is a power issue and not necessarily a bad LCD or video processor. When you plug the charger onto the side does it light up indicating a power source is live at the plug? Do any other light indicators light up on or around the case of the laptop? If the answer is no then the most reasonable assumption to make is that your power adapter has failed and the battery is run down. If you are getting power to the DC jack area but there are no lights on the case to indicate power than there may be a problem with the jack itself re: failure of solder points that attach it to its cable or directly on the main board. If there are lights at the jack and lights indicating power, then there may be a problem with the main board in how it is processing the power from the adapter. Last but not least, look for activity from the hard drive indicator light, if you see activity from that light then the hard drive is active and the problem is centered around the video processing, whether it is the video card or the screen itself. The latter is much better because it does not involve changing out the main board. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair
