Is there a better way to reattach the Display cable?
I recently upgraded my HDD, and when I went to put my display cable back into it's port on the board, it has a blank screen and occasionally a fan runs fast. The LED troubleshooting lights only have 3 out of the 4 lit up, indicating a problem with the LCD display. I get a chime upon boot, but the fans and the HDD remain active. I checked out the Logic board and it does not have any damage. I can only assume that it is the cable itself since the pins on the MLB side somehow get slightly bent whenever I try to insert to the board.
I am not sure what I am doing wrong, because obviously I am doing something wrong when I insert the cable in the port and the pins get bent. Is there a better way to reattach the cable to the port without damaging the pins on the cable?
Is this a good question?
Did you ever find an answer to this question? I have the same problem.
I found out it was better to attach the LVDS cable carefully to the logic board - and then to the top of the LCD. No way I can with my big hands can insert it again correctly from an angle.
where do you get a replacement cable, hey?
No the cable is in a socket. You need to remove the black tape.
Where can a replacement cable be sourced from? Apple doesn't appear to sell just the cable. Who sells just the cable?
