Title:

Damaged Display Data (LVDS) Connector - What to do now?

Text:

This cable connects LCD panel to logic board. A damaged display data (LVDS) cable will cause the display not to show image.

Bad Idea. I bought an aftermarket screen that did not have the full assembly.

After taking the MacBook to a nonmac installer the LVDS cable that connects to the lcd itself is now damaged.

The prongs are warped.

I have spent too much money revamping this MacBook and will not buy the full assembly.

I have a fully functional MacBook with a working aftermarket glossy lcd and a damaged LVDS Connector.

Put it up for sale? Sell it for parts?

Find a new connector and attempt repair?

I do not know what to do.
