Display flickering after replacement.
I replaced my macbook pro screen a year or so ago (by myself as it was out of warranty) and had no problems whatsoever. Recently my wife dropped it and cracked the screen so I ordered another replacement.
After replacing the screen and putting it all back together it flickers on and off on boot. It is loading the OS fine, I can see it between the flickers, and it also works fine when plugged in to an external monitor. I thought that the replacement screen was faulty, but when I plugged the cracked screen back in it also flickered (before the replacement, the cracked screen did not flicker, images showed fine on half of the screen).
I have attempted to reseat the connections several times and also wiggled the cables around to see if there was any effect but nothing makes a difference. I am assuming the problem is a faulty inverter or the iSight/Display/Inverter cable was damaged during the process. Since I haven't had any inverter problems before the replacement I'm hoping it's the cable.
Does replacing the cable sound like my best option? Or could there be any other possible source for the flickering?
Many thanks in advance for any help!
Is this a good question?
