Doubting if the MBP screws are Phillips, JIS or Frearson
I'm going to open my MBP because part of the screen does not look, sometimes is black, other times it flashes. Sometimes even display properly.
I think is the LVDS cable.
But I have to be sure what kind of screws are.
I think is JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) or Reed and Prince (also called Frearson)
iFixit sells JIS Driver set
"JIS screws are not designed to "cam-out" or strip the head when overtightened like a Phillips screw, and can be damaged if a Phillips driver is used. JIS drivers can be used in both JIS and Phillips screws with no damage"
What do you think?
Hard to find JIS driver sizes 000, 00, 0, and 1. Made in USA ESD Safe, Lifetime Warranty. — 43 available at 22.95 each.
I don't really care what type of screw head is on the MacPro. I need to remove the screws to replace screen and I just want to know where to go to get a driver that works. I bought the set of drivers recommended for screen removal /replacement and none in the set are small enough. I just want someone to tell me what will work and where can I get one, i.e., Rat Shack, etc.. Any ideas?
