My Problem

Screen went from having a single neon blue line running vertical down it, to simply having no picture at all.

My Fix

Following the instructions everything took less than 45 minutes to do. Unfortunately for me when I reassembled I got picture, but no backlight. When taking it apart for the second time; when unplugging the Disply converter cable from the I/O board, the spudger ended up breaking off the connector. So I've ordered a new I/O board, as well as display convertor in hopes to fix it all for the last time.

My Advice

Careful removing the display convertor cable, as I mentioned above. I'm going to be using a small needle nose this next time around.

My Problem

I suspected the video data line or loose connection. I did not want to operate without a new one, so I ordered one from iFixit.

My Fix

Went well and the screen works like it should. (This is my wife's MBPro, so it better work! ;-)

My Advice

I use a 12 inch strip of duct tape with the sticky face up and the two ends turned down to stick to the table. I place screws in order at the back of the tape and move forward as I take screws out. Been doing this for years and I haven't lost a screw, had one left or gotten one mixed up.

My Problem

My MacBook Pro screen gradually turned black (in fact, not totally black, but no graphics anymore). At first it could be revived by yanking the edges, but finally it didn't light up at all. I decided to replace the screen data cable, because it was the most obvious (the macbook worked well with an external screen, and the data cable was the cheapest repair option).

My Fix

Thanks to the ifixit illustrated guide, the repair went smoothly. Unfortunately, after having reassembled everything, nothing had changed. I suppose I should have gone to the LCD replacement, but the price tag was a bit of a drawback for me. Anyway, I'll keep the MacBook as a-very small form factor-desktop.

My Advice

A colleague of mine gave me this advice : use some plastic cups to keep all the small parts step by step. you can pile them up after each step, and they will be in the right order for reassembly
