MacBook Pro 15" santa rosa - problems with screen and LCD

My Computer:

MacBook Pro (15-inch 2.4GHz), Model: "Santa Rosa" (before "unibody"), Year: 2007


The symptoms:

The case concerns the screen. Sometimes the picture on the bottom part of screen suddenly disappears and changes into gray. Generally the picture comes back when you just press the screen frame. But sometimes it does not help and you have to wait a while, then again, is fine.


My question:

I realize that service can very officially say that I need to replace all LCD. But what could be the REAL reason for such behavior?

Burned, hit or otherwise damaged LCD, in the damaged areas simply doesn't illuminate. Here we have temporary no illuminate. Maybe something between the motherboard and the matrix does not contact?


I'm curious about your opinion.

Chosen Solution

You've damaged the screen, or the controller board for the screen. The Data Display cable takes the signal to the top of the screen, and the controller board and the screen matrix itself controls illumination of the pixels. The solution is to replace the LCD panel.

You may have a damaged inverter board that is plugged into the LCD.
