LVDS Cable Issue - Extremely Hot?
I just bought a MBP 15" which had a broken screen, the plan was to install a new LCD, which all went without a hitch. However the LCD is still not displaying any image, only the backlight (this is what was happening with the old LCD).
I also noticed that around 5cm of the clutch cover on the far left (where the LVDS cable is underneath) gets EXTREMELY hot within 1 minute of the computer being on. I'm talking 'can't hold my finger on it' hot. I then unplugged the cable from the logic board and noticed a few of the pins had black on them, suggesting maybe a short somewhere?
Do I need a new LVDS cable? or can I somehow fix this. Please tell me I can, because I dread taking off the glass bezel again.
Is this a good question?
