    1) macbook pro A1278 had a spill and was cleaned but now i dont have a backlight. everything else works and if you look hard enough you can see the image on screen and it works on external
    i was told to change the fuse but i cant find it, if anyone can direct me to where it is lol(i can take a picture of the logic board if my camera lets me)

    2)macbook unibody A1342 was working great but i think i might have blown a fuse on that one also as the backlight doesnt work. No spill on this one! what happened was i was testing to see if lcd friend bought off ebay that was susposed to be working as it wouldnt work on his(he thought maybe his motherboard was dead instead)

    anyhow i tried it out and it didnt work, so i put my lcd assemble back on and no backlight anymore

    if anyone can let me know where the fuses are located and i will check if they are open

    also i was told that the part is a 2a 0402 fuse and can be bought from

    did you ever find a solution for your a1342 unibody macbook? I had the EXACT same issue happen to me. put another lcd to test if it works, it didnt work, then when i put my old one back on the backlight stopped working. If I put a flashlight up to the back of the lcd I can see the image on the screen.
