Hi...long time lurker, first time poster. Anyhow, onto the question at hand: I have a Week 16 MacBook Pro 1.83 ghz, 512 MB 100GB Notebook. Last week, I managed to close the MBP on my earbuds which were resting on the upper keyboard area and crack the LCD display and slightly bend the aluminum bezel. I ordered a replacement LCD off of eBay and installed it. (Since obviously it was going to be an out-of-warranty repair anyhow). Now, there's two issues: I cannot adjust the brightness of the LCD. It originally was at a low brightness setting (but fully useable, of course, just dimmer than the retina-scorching backlight I was used to), but tonight I reset the PRAM, and now it's at the highest brightness setting (or close, I'd imagine), but I STILL cannot adjust the brightness, either through the keyboard buttons nor the control panel. Any Ideas on what could be causing this? The iSight is also not recognized by the system if that has anything to do with it. The connector for the iSight is firmly seated, however. The second issue the machine has is the aforementioned bent bezel. The lower right corner is bent a bit, and the bottom back of the LCD enclosure is slightly bowed. It can be "snapped" back together, but will come apart a bit (~2mm) when the machine is closed. The hinge closes correctly and the latches both connect on the first try, but all is not "correct" (ie. 100% perfect). Now, this is a perfectly capable machine, but with the advent of upcoming MBP's, I am interested in selling this machine. Would it be worth more as a whole, or parting it out? I'm not all too sure that the Mac market is as eager for notebook parts, as I've experienced in the past with PC laptop parts, but I'd be willing to try if it was worth my time. Any guesstimates on what a good price on eBay, et al., would be for such a machine? Pictures will be attached in a moment. Thanks!
