Title:

Replacement LCD Not working

Text:

I bought a 12" 1.33ghz iBook. It works perfectly but has a cracked LCD. I bought an LCD from an earlier model iBook off of here to replace. The only thing I replaced on the 1.33ghz iBook was the panel. I used all the existing cables and housing. The problem is that when I put the non-cracked panel in, the LVDS cable gets burning hot. I thought these panels were interchangeable. What gives?

Device:

iBook G4 12" 1.33 GHz
