display stops working and shows grey lines
I have a model A1226 macbook pro with a display that stopped working suddenly- the display shows vertical gray lines and a gray background, sort of like the video signal is bad. I can connect the laptop to an external screen, and that works fine.
I took the laptop to an apple repair shop here in belgium and they said that the display needs to be replaced, and that my model is not eligible for the nvidia chip hardware extension since the external display can be connected to the laptop without problems.
is there a way I can figure out if the video cable is bad or the display itself is bad, and where can I get a replacement display for the laptop?
Is this a good question?
