    Hello,

    My MBP mate screen 17" died (broken). Inverter board was OK.
    I get a replacement 17" screen but glossy. The light do not go up with
    that screen.

    My question is : is the inverter board different for mate and glossy screens.
    My inverter is 612-0011-1. The glossy screen is LP171WE2 (TL)(A1).

    Thanks,

    Boards are the same, panels are the same; just the coating is different.

    I asked for a replacement, got another screen with the same reference from the
    ebay reseller .. and it worked !! So that was a defective screen sold by that
    ebay reseller.
