    Hello everyone.

    I've got a used 17" 4.1 2008 Macbook Pro from eBay and the Screen won't turn on. Tried PRAM, SMC Reset, Nothing..

    The Keyboard lighting doesn't work as well, either the DVI Output. I'm wondering if this is an issue due to the fact I'm using only the magsafe adapter as a power source as there is no battery available.

    Fans, hdd, Power LED, working fine..

    Thanks.. I was also on the same track. I think the Logic Board is dead. Been totally scammed. Off to eBay Protection.

    If you have an Apple store convenient to you may be worth a trip in to see if they'll replace the logic board. Yeah, you didn't get what you paid for, but you may have it made whole. It's a known issue, and may well still be covered, as the official line was 4 years from date of sale - but others here, myself included have had them cover beyond that.
