DisplayPort cable damaged? Display not being recognized with new one
I think I damaged mine. I opened it to replace the optical drive, and when I was going to close the system. I didn't inserted the ribbon in a parallel way, resulting in a dented ribbon, I just received the DisplayPort ribbon/cable and to my surprise my display is not being recognized. I'm using an external display now.
I did a SMC PRAM reset, I took the RAM away and reinserted again but nothing happens.
is there anyway to replace it by myself? I'm not in the USA.
Thanks Oldturkey03, pollytintop and Dan: The EMC is 2389. The display doesn't work at all, no backlight no picture, it is not even being detected. Right now I'm working with a Plasma TV.
I had the same problem with the original data ribbon which has the SN: 593-1280 REV A and then part I ordered from Macpartsonline is 593 - 1280A ICT 1611 which appears to be the same except for the way how the code is shown. There is no visible damage on the socket itself.
The ribbon plugs in both sides naturally, its a perfect fit, so unless the new ribbon is also damaged I blame the display port socket, since the display was fine before I dented the old ribbon, maybe I stretched the socket or broke some pin.
I checked the diagnose LED's and it just the first three lit.
Jigzat, according to the ribbon number yours is a iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2010), is that correct? 922-9497 593-1280-a 593-1280 are compatible data display cables for that model. Now in order to find the proper display port connector, it will help to either know the mother board number (should be stenciled on your board) and/or the display panel number. This is important to try to match it. If fourth LED is not visible after power on:
• Verify internal DisplayPort cable connections between LCD panel and logic board
• Inspect LCD display cables for cable damage
• Verify external video functionality, and according to result check the following items:
If external display works then verify/replace the LED backlight board
If external display works then verify/replace the LCD panel
If external display does not work verify/replace the logic board
Hello guys, i'm having a similar issue i guess. I have a 27 inch imac (late 2009) and ended up damaging accidentally the I-PEX adapter in my logic board. Can someone help me out identifying my part number and where can i buy it from? I'm really stuck with this!
ps. here's a picture of the issue: http://cl.ly/image/2n3q0t3Q013C
2 of 30 Pads on the Board are damaged, so the LCD is not recognised by the iMac. The Board seems to be OK, because an external Monitor works fine.
Is their a way to Bridge those 2 pins of the connector direct with a wire to an logic board. I haven't found any schematics about this connector?
