Turquoise vertical lines fill the white spaces on screen
My beloved MacBook Pro 17" is having strange turquoise vertical lines in all white spaces on the display. This does not occur when conected to an external monitor (see picture).
I have looked extensively on the web, but cannot find this spesific fault.
Is it my display cable? The computer has had several HDD-changes, (thanx to iFixit teardown-help!).
I also added a SSD in place of my DVD.
I have lost it on te floor on several occations, and i has been used more or less 24/7 since it was bought in 2010.
Please help, dear iFixit! :-)
MacBook Pro 17" Unibody, mid 2010
Prosessor 2,53 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Software OS X 10.8.5 (12F45)
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 512 MB
Ending of serialnumber: WDC79
The lines are only visible on the macbook screen, not on my external monitor.
They also come and go depending on the angle of the screen.
Is it only the cable, then? Hurray!!!
Is this a good question?
