I'm trying to repair my Touchpad which I stupidly got water on. I opened it up to dry it out. Once I reconnected the screen and laid it on top of the back half I had it power up to the desktop but with no backlight and a poorly responding touch surface. The unit was powered when water got on it and the light was working, albeit patch with water marks. So...
Does anyone know if the unit needs to be closed for the screen to light? I can see the front button won't work without closing so could this be similar? I assumed that the LCD cable would power it up.
I did think that there might be a sensor issue while the case is open but i should get some light regardless, right?
Would anyone know what I can check for the backlight or where I could get a replacement?
Thanks in advance for your help :-)
