Second Step for MacBook Air Screen Fix…

is to locate and disconnect the battery – I used the flat end of a plastic iPhone tool which closely resembles a Flathead screw driver.  Be delicate so as to not stretch the ribbon; you need to only gently disconnect this tab and that is it!

Third Step for MacBook Air Screen Fix…

Is to plug the laptop charger back in.  Once you connect you should hear the computer boot back up pretty quickly.  If it does not, remove the charger and try again. *Option: run a time machine backup to make sure you have a copy of all the data.
