  • -Sticky keys have been almost perfect- just had to loosen up the keyboard I guess. The backlight I took apart ~4 times, and now it looks ok (acceptable by me). Tinted it blue- it looks SUPER cool, and I also colored the sleep light. I'll email pics …
  • Here goes it so far.... Took screen and plugged it in. Booted up, and I have apple logo but no backlight. Fine by me. Took computer completely apart (cleaned keyboard keyboard backlight). Aligned it wrong, so will have to fix that.... Screwed in di…
  • I got the laptop today (in fact, I am writing this on it) Turned it on, started, everything works fine. Then I started typing.... And the keys stick. Strong evidence of liquid damage on all keys right of P. All the keys work, superdrive works.... W…
  • Thanks for the reply (unfortunately I forgot to check back and ordered the screen today) Apart from ordering the parts I have been in contact with the seller. He states the the display got fractured and was run without glass for a while. Eventually…
  • Actually- do you happen to know for sure wether the displays are compatible? Ive heard both ways on it... Thanks -Thomas
  • Ok, lost the bids on that, but today I finally got something. I managed to score this (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-MacBook-Pro-15-Unibody-Laptop-A1286-Damaged-Screen-for-Parts-or-Repair-/200754543657?pt=Apple_Laptops&hash=item2ebde73c29#ht_402…
  • I say agree Probably needs a new HDD as well. Finally found one posted in a completely wrong section that has no bids. $500 post 2009 MBP.
  • Why? Why must ebay be so fickle?? Everything is increasingly more broken. Like this (http://www.ebay.com/itm/320900200063?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_500wt_1413) which will need a new display (and/or) LDVS cable, airpor…

  • Haha, $150 was the price point I thought of too. If anything the airport in a friends laptop is starting to go on the fritz so I might be able to fix it.. Thanks
  • Oh gosh, I'm back again (you just cant get rid of me!) Found a strange listing on ebay, deep in the PC side.... The guy had posted a blurred, tiny shot of what looked like an acer laptop, and listed it as an apple. I put it on the watch list and as…
  • I doubt he has done the ram thing himself, but maybe at applecare he might have, who knows what he has done? Lol, and look what I found scoping other computers http://www.ebay.com/itm/170831082162?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.…
  • Ok- here goes: Got an answer back from the seller on the startup process he quotes "Hi, Usually it would make 3 beeps and show the apple logo, then show a black screen. this happened pretty much every time i tried to boot. Some veeeeery rare occasi…
  • Thank you so much for your help- I will be sure to check back and tell you what I got. If it is to be sold, I would probably take out the screen and top and sell it as 2 parts- the screens seem to be going for around $150 pulled from a working machi…
  • Also- what would you say about macs that have worked fine but suddenly will not start or turn on? There seems to be a lot of them- are they mostly logic board failures?
  • Ok- ill wait for an answer from the seller, and see what turns up. I think though, If it is not bid up much by the end, It might be worth a shot. If it fails on me, I can sell the bad board for around $100 probably, the screen for $150, top case fo…
  • Ok... Thanks for the answer. What would you suppose this would be- a logic board issue? It seems doubtful as he says it boots up occasionally. I am contacting the seller to get more info. If it turns out to be kernel panics rather than a completely …
