White display - Which LVDS cable do I get?
Backstory: This all started with an LCD that was showing bands of color or white that would fade in and out.
I purchased a replacement LCD from ifixit, installed it, and now I get a pure white screen. All other functions seem to work (keys, volume control, brightness control, etc...).
The Problem: I read up on these forums and decided that my LVDS cable was probably bad. A visual inspection doesn't give away any definite damage, but it does seem generally worn out.
So I got an LVDS cable from an online site that I thought would match mine. The description was for a MacBook Pro 13" Unibody. But when I went to install it, I noticed that it was the wrong size.
The connector is too wide on both ends.
My Question: Does any one know what the varying size LVDS cables are and which one I would need for my model MacBook Pro?
- MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2010
- Model - A1278
- LCD brand - LG
- laptop serial (last 4) - WATM
Is this a good question?
