logicboard LVDS connector broken after liquid spill
Im hoping that some of you could offer me some assistance. I have a Macbook Air 13" (Late 2013) that unfortunatly had a glass of water spilt over it. I couldnt open it straight away as i didnt have the correct screwdriver kit. I purchased a kit and got it opened and it didnt look too bad but at this point i hadnt tried to turn it on. I cleaned up the board and turned it on... and too my surprise it turned on and the boot tone sounded but the screen didnt turn on.
I switched it back off and had a closer inspection of the video cable, and i found that the display connector (LVDS?) is damaged and needs replacing. I am experienced with soldering SMD devices (however these pins are rather small), so dont mind trying to repair it.
Where can i get one here in the UK? i see China supplies them but in batches of 10. What is the actual name of them as they are only supplying them under Macbook Air LVDS connector.
Is there anything else i need to look at? does the power for the backlight go through this same cable?
Thanks very much for your time
Is this a good question?
