Is there any way to solve "pressure marks"


just a short question. Is there any way to solve the white pressure marks on a Mabook Pro 2011 hi res Display?

They are quite annoying and changing the whole part is a bit expensive.

Update (04/20/2017)

Can this be done without any special Tools? What parts do I need?

To me it looks like the bezel might be glued to the screen, or are there any clips or things like that?

Is LTN154MT07 the right part to use (hi res and non glossy)?

Sorry for that many questions!

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I honestly don't know bout the second part, I think @reecee can do this.


Painting knife and heat to slide under, been a while since I've done one but don't think there were any clips to deal with (this is assuming it is the silver frame one). Just use 3M tape to stick on after the repair, and scrape off the old glue. Regarding part, I don't know by the part number for this model, but if it is high res and non-glossy, and for an A1286, it will work.


Thank you both so much :)


maybe using a suction cup

Unfortunately, no. Once the marks are there, there is no way to get rid of them. If you want, you can get the LCD only and replace it that way to reduce costs.

Sad but true! You basically pressed the liquid out at that point in the LCD panel so now the glass plates are pressing against each other.

There are two versions of the Hi-Res display for your system:
