I'm looking at my daughter's MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 13" (Unibody) A1278. She had a "Pepsi Syndrome" spill and now the LED back light is dead on the display. I opened the case to find that the display data cable and connector have a burned contact, which is likely the cause. Display output is functioning fine with an external monitor. I'll post pics when i get a chance.
My question is: has anyone repaired the connector on the logic board or is a replacement logic board and a new display data cable the only option?
I thought that it might be possible to jumper around the connector to make a repair. I would need a microscope, a fine tip on the soldering iron and very fine wire to do this. Any advice?
