A successful repair, but not too successful.

Mijn probleem

The monitor would not turn on reliably, and cheap inverters from eBay wouldn't do the job. I had to open the laptop very carefully until the backlight was warm enough or it would turn off again.

Mijn oplossing

Since I had used other cheap inverters before, I had already used the guide many times before without a hitch. This time I guess I was feeling very cocky and forgot to connect a few things, like the Bluetooth chip.

The inverter from iFixit works... better than the ones from eBay, but I still get a little flickering and uneven illumination if the display brightness is 4 pips lower than the maximum. Sometimes it won't turn on if I open the laptop too fast, so I still have to take a moment before opening it completely. When the display is cold, it will flicker and seem like it won't turn on, but it almost always works, so 3 out of 5?

Mijn advies

When you're putting the Macbook back together, make sure you connect every little thing correctly. I only forgot connecting the Bluetooth thingy and the display data one because I didn't take my time.

Take the repair as an afternoon of crafting, not as a hurried repair, and everything should be fine. Patience is key!
