I have a mid 2010 15" Macbook that has no wifi. I have replaced the screen with a known working wifi inside. I did notice one bent pin on the logic board connector. I straightened it but still no luck. Is there a fuse that may have blown because of this?

Not sure what you mean by "replaced the screen with a known working wifi inside"

The Wifi/Bluetooth combo board for the mid-2010 15" MacBook Pro is located in the main body.

You may find useful information by checking out iFixit's teardown (https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/MacBook+Pro+15-Inch+Unibody+Mid+2010+Teardown/2212).

I guess it must be a 2009 then. It says it's a mid 2010 in the about.

The About should be correct. But I don't know of any MacBook series that has carried the Wifi card in the Screen....

Unless you mean the Wifi antenna cable? Again, use the iFixit guide to ensure you've put everything where it belongs (like the Wifi antenna plugged in correctly)

I don't know how you would come to such a conclusion and it's probably what it says in the About — a 2010 model…

It shows on this Youtube video that it is under the black housing at the bottom of the screen. But my problem is on the logic-board.

I'm not sure what board is being replaced in that video (which is for the 13" model (https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/MacBook+Pro+13-Inch+Unibody+Mid+2010+AirPort+Card+Replacement/6024)), but it doesn't appear to be the Wifi / Bluetooth board, which is on the logic board:

;) I already have. Just click the link I posted above to the iFixit guide. It gives you a visual step-by-step, identifying components and proper teardown procedures.

Sorry but mine only has one connector on the logic board coming from the bottom right side of the screen so it must be a 2009 even though Apple states otherwise.
