Can I replace the screen data cable with a later version?
I have an iBook g4 14" 1.33 with a faulty LCD panel.
I have mistakenly bought a used 14" LCD which turned out to be the part used on later iBooks (the 1.42GHz model of 2005).
I have done some research and discovered that these later models use a screen data cable with a 1" connector (narrow) whilst my one has a 1.5" connector (wide).
My question is: can I replace the screen data cable on my lappy with one that is compatible with the screen I bought (i've seen the guide 'Installing iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Data Cable')? In other words, is the "narrow connector" cable compatible with my logic board?
It would probably be much cheaper than selling back the lcd and getting a compatible one...
Is this a good question?
