I recently cracked open my miniA1283 to upgrade the RAM. I made sure that when I did so I reconnected the antennas & ribbon leading from the mobo to the superdrive in the rear of the unit. I have seen guides where they mention disconnecting the HD sensor in front, but I did not unplug that and as far as I can tell is connected.
After replacing the RAM I turned the mini on I get the light on the front of the unit to turn on for a few seconds, then the light goes out momentarily, then the light goes on and stays on. I tried putting the old RAM back in with the same result.
I'm not sure what I did wrong? The 3 main connections as I understand it are the ribbon in back running from the MOBO to the board on the superdrive, the sensor in front (which I did not touch) and the antennas.
I have a mini display port-->hdmi adapter I tried on my TV (Panasonic LED) and computer monitor (Asus).
In short I get no audio cue and no video display.
I work in IT and have disassembled many PC's in my day but this is the first go at a MAC. I made sure there was no static discharge, etc when working on the unit.
Thanks for any and all help!
