Faulty Display or Cable?

I have an iMac13,1 with a very faulty display that just shows vertical lines and noise. The iMac works fine with an external display, and I can use it just fine in mirrored mode. I have removed and re-seated the LVDS cable, but that hasn't helped. Based on this picture, is it more likely to be a problem with the cable, or the display itself?

Looks like a faulty display to me. But you should try another cable first, wich is not expensive. Good luck!

IT WAS THE CABLE! I got one for about $12 from China, and it fixed my display right up.


How can find the cable?


I got one from AliExpress shipped for US $11.
