Replaced LVDS cable, no more lines in screen but different issue.
I just replaced the LVDS cable on a friends Macbook A1260. Initially the screen would flicker with horizontal and vertical lines in the screen and it would get worst when you tapped on the LCD.
I replaced the LVDS cable, put everything back together and the lines are now gone but I face another issue. I notice now when I tap on the screen and/or slightly press in/bend the screen I get weird color distortion. As if the screen was pressed on and ink exploded. When I tape on the screen again it goes back to normal.
I was just wondering, does this have anything to do with the LVDS cable, inventor or is it the LCD? (which I believe it to be) .. just wanted some clarification.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
Is this a good question?
