Green Pixelation on lcd display
So I started repair on a mac laptop with a cracked/damaged LCD assembly. It is a A1286 (EMC 2325) from mid 2009, last 3 serial # is 644. The LCD had a few cracks on the glass, plus the bezel for the display assembly was cracked/loose and janky. It displayed things with green pixels throughout. I then checked the external display out and it worked just fine. I figured it was best to replace the LCD and to be safe the lvds cable. After doing so I got the SAME issue as with the other LCD which is green pixelation. I swapped cable, lcd's, old vs. new. All with the same result. I am now slightly baffled. My only thought was maybe the lvds connector was loose on the board. I then resoldered it extremely carefully, cleaned off any excess flux and then gave it a shot of deoxit, STILL same issues. I am just no sure if I am missing something. My only 2 thoughts are the lvds connector is totally damaged or some how the video card is damaged, but only for the internal output and I am not sure if that is possible. Thanks for any help.
Is this a good question?
