    Recently I had a problem with the keyboard and I gave it for repairs. Today I got it back but now I just realized that the keyboard lights are not working. They said that they replaced my keyboard.

    I saw in another place saying that the keyboard light connecter could get pulled off accidentally while repairing the keyboard.

    If this is the case, is it possible for us to check it without having to remove the warranty sticker?

    (Its a late 2011 macbook pro 17 )

    Thanks.

    There is no warranty sticker to peel, so feel free to open it up and see if there is something loose or not connected at all.

    Thank you for the reply. So, opening it will not causes the warranty to be void? And what should I have heard someone says that removing the battery is not permitted or something. Is that true?

    btw, it would be nice if you can tell me where the connecter is located and any other tips on it.

    Thanks again

    iFixit 17" MBP Unibody Repair Guide. iFixit doesn't have a guide for the early or late 2011 17" MBP but chances are the cable is in the same place as in previous unibody revisions.

    They upgraded it for you, so those stupid POS things don't come on when you're on the login screen.

    I was kind of being sarcastic, but those things do really suck and are annoying as $&%*. Luckily, they can be turned off!

    If you took it in for repair and it was broken when it came back, take it back and have them fix it. They shouldn't have returned it to you if it wasn't functioning correctly.
