LCD replacement : which brand to choose?
I have a mac book pro A1260 Core 2DUO 2.4 Ghz and my LCD is broken => I want to replace it.
I found on your site that if I have a screen CHIMEI N154C6-L02, I need to buy exactly the same screen.
As far as I understood, the only way to know which one I have is to take it apart from the laptop.
Unfortunatly, if I unmount it, my mac will be unusable until the new part comes (for the moment, I can use it with external screen) and I would like to avoid that (15 to 30 days).
Of course, I could remount it once I have the reply but I would multiply the risk of problems doing that.
So my question is the following : you say that only a chimei screen will be compatible with a chimei screen. But will a chimey screen be compatible with the other types of screens (samsung ..)
If yes, then I just have to buy a chimey to be sure to be compatible with everything.
If no, what is the most common type ? Chimei or non Chimei ?
By the way, what is the difference between both types ?
And let's imagine I buy a screen and I wait to receive it before unmounting the original one. The day I unmount the original one, I realize that I did not buy the good one, do you think the reseller will accept to take it back and to sell me another one instead (as long as I don't take it out of its packing of course).
In this case of course, I will have my laptop unusable for some delay but at least, I have a possibility to be fine at the first time
Thanks in advance for your replies and for your website that already helped me a lot with this problem
Thanks for your quick reply
1/ About my mac did not give me any information.
It just tells I have a color LCD screen. No name, no brand ...
2/ Terminal window gave me the following result
Doing a search on google tells me that it may be a philips screen. On the other hand, it may also be the generic name of the screen.
Anyway, does this mean that I can buy any screen brand (including philips) except Chimei or that I have to buy exclusively a Philips screen ?
Thanks again for your help
