    Hi, I have a problem with my asus zenbook ux31a. A friend of mine replaced a faulty power jack for me. After that while assembling the laptop I connected the LCD strip with the battery plugged in. I've heard some cracking noise and now backlight is gone.
    I showed the laptop to two different "laptop repair specialists", but it turned out they're not really that good. One told me that there's something wrong with the motherboard, but he doesnt know what (he checked all the fuses he said). The other said the led backlight is faulty and I have to replace the whole upper lid.
    Is damaged baclight itself possible in my case? Or it's rather the motherboard?
    Another interesting thing is that the laptop doesnt do anything after I close the lid, eventhough I set up in win10 that it should hibernate after lid closing. So it got my suspicious about the reed sensor. But the keyboard is working fine. Faulty reed sensor would block backlight and the keyboard, right?
    Also I can't power up the laptop normally. Every time after shut down I have to disconnect the battery, reconnect it and then plug in the ac adapter, then it starts automatically without even pressing the power button.
    Befor that unfortunate laptop assembly everything was working fine.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I checkd LVDS pins. Here are the values:
    pin 8: 19V
    pins 13 and 14: 0V
    pins 18,19,20: 3.3V
    Looks like faulty U4501? Anyone knows correct values for pins 13 and 14?
