display is showing vertical lines

My screen is showing vertical lines on some portion on middle area, it's a thick line with multi coloured lines.

External display is working fine. Can some one confirm what the is problem it might? Could it be the LVDS cable or screen?

Sadly, your LCD screen is damaged.

You likely got a good hit on the lid dislodging the driver logic from the back side of the display assembly.

Here's the IFIXIT guide on replacing the display assembly: MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Early 2011 Display Replacement

thanks for the help....but how to open the glass.the glass is also little bit cracked when i tried to remove it...


While you could replace the LCD screen alone, I think you'll find replacing the complete lid a lot easier.


mbp is having strange problem..since i opened it.the problem is.if i turn off mbp it wont turn on.untill unless i remove the battery connection then turn get started.after when i shutdown and connect battery and plug in the charger the laptop turns on.and if i shut down my computer i have to repeat this step of unplugging the battery and mostly i keep turn on my macbook.earlier it was working fine until i tear down the mbp and after connecting all facing this strange issue.i will be very thankful to you if you can help me in this mattter.otherwise everything is working fine..


Did you replace the display? And how did you do it? Did you follow the IFIXIT guide not jumping over any steps?
