From what I know there were something like 4 different LCDs for the C2D Macbook Pros: Samsung, LG, Chi Mei, and some generic compatible. Are these all the same? Can I mismatch replacements? From what I remember the only physically different one is the Chi Mei brand which had different bezel size. Other than that, can these brands all be used interchangeably in the Macbook Pro C2D's?

I only ask because the replacement that I bought a long time ago tested fine on another machine but when I hook it up to my personal MBP (same model), the backlight won't work. So if someone knows a thing or two about replacements or can look up the serial numbers, let me know. I'm absolutely confused.
