Display hinges / LCD panels interchangeability on PB 12inch?
Hello. I have two 12-inch PBs, with almost identical specs. One is fully operational (with bad LCD), and another is faulty (but LCD is real good).
Today I took them apart to swap LCD panels and found they have different LCD panels. And, which is more important - display hinges marked differently.
Donor PB: Pristine Samsung panel, hinges marked SAM-L and SAM-R.
Recipient PB: LG/Philips panel, hinges marked LG-L and LG-R.
Visually hinges are identical (except the marking). I read Apple's service manual and haven't found any notion of hinges' actual differences. So i wonder:
is it OK to affix Samsung LCD to LG-hinges? Will it work? Any hidden dangers?
If you have expirience in fixing PowerBooks, I will really appreciate your advice and guidance.
Is this a good question?
