    Hey guys,

    I have an old 2.33 C2D Penryn MBP that i just finished chanigng the thermal paste on. the problem is that now the backlight doesn't work. I have it running on an external monitor right now, but i just wanted to ask before I go ahead and order another LCD + inverter if there was anything on the motherboard itself that i could have messed up to have the backlight go out.

    after all, i wasn't touching the lcd at all while working on it... any thoughts?

    Hopefully a loose cable.
    Btw the 2.33Ghz isn't a Penryn. slowest penryn made was 2.4Ghz
    The 2.33Ghz is prolly a yonah
