I found a spot on my 2010 MacBook Pro that powers the backlight for the display. It's a tiny chip with a white dot on it. I used tweezers on each side and found that holding them there caused the backlight to come back to life.
Anyway, so I've never soldered anything before but decided to try it to connect the chip and now the backlight is working great again. Do you have any experience with this? Will this work for the long haul or did I just do something that will make the problem worse in the future?
Thanks, as always for the assist...
