Glad you got it finally fixed! The conductors inside the ribbon cable that runs thru the congested hinge area are not only vulnerable to antenna failure but also to vidicam and display failures from opening and closing the lid too often. The infamous black screen problem is often due to a conductor break in the ribbon in the hinge area. Ask me how I know this.
