Can a damaged LVDS cable be the reason for no backlight?
I had my screen repaired at a shop which doesn't work for Apple. Everything went well and I used my system for 2 months with no problems. Then my screen didn't turn on again. It turned out that my systems backlight doesn't work (light through Apple logo still shows screen and connected to external screen everything works fine).
So I brought it back to that shop. After analyzing it they told me that the LVDS cable is damaged and they have to swap it out. But they don't have any spare parts and it was more expensive than I thought.
Now I want to buy a LVDS cable myself, but when I googled my problem, no one ever talked about the LVDS cable.
So my question is, if a damaged LVDS Cable can be the reason for no backlight on my system and what would you recommend if it is, or if it isn't, what is the problem?
Is this a good question?
