I did everything & the screen is just black :( :( :(

Im so injured (neck) i can't deal with this… :( :(

Everything except the battery absolutely would not come out. But because it was so injured it's at they're not plugged in for a couple of months, so I figured it was pretty certainly dead anyway - no lights were on at all.

Thought this was going to be over, I'm so fricking heartbroken. Everything seemed to go put back in place. But the outer cover definitely never had 13 screws, I was acutely careful with the screws.

Going to fricking take it apart again I guess... although screens definitely in so it must be one of the connections…ugh sigh, please help if anyone can.

Guide worked perfectly

Only think i would change is the bit about slidding the bottom of the display - Need to pry this instead

Thank you

Perfect instructions except for the part about the battery connector. When I went backwards to reconnect the battery I finally figured out that I had removed the holder to the connector (silver) and upon further discovery found I had removed the connectors (wires) from the motherboard. Had to take it to an expert to see if he could solder it back or have the entire motherboard replaced. Need more detailed photos on that section to clearly explain it.
