MacBook Pro display issue
Long story short, i changed the thermal paste on my macbook pro as it was running hotter and hotter (as a matter of fact the paste was dry and there were tons of it...). Everything went fine, the display cable was a little stiff and i had to hold it firmly to present it horizontally but nothing scary. I was quite gentle and cautious. When i booted the mac it displayed only blank light (so the backlight is working). The external displays works fine.
As in this post (LVDS Cable Issue - Extremely Hot?) i noticed immediately an increase of temperature of the mac (airflow was 60°C) and i shut it down immediately and opened it back. The display cable was very hot, and i disconnected it. I gave a look to the display socket with a magnifier and it looks in perfect condition. I couldn't spot any visible damage on the motherboard. With the cable disconnected the computer works perfectly with the external display (temps are all fine).
Do you think i may have damaged the cable? Are those things notoriously fragile as i wasn't careless at all.
Oh and one more thing :-) the mac now starts itself alone when i plug it in. Maybe this helps to understand what's going on.
Thanks in advance
Is this a good question?
