Is the display data cable broken?
Dear iFixit community,
I have a PowerBook G4 Titanium DVI A1025 867 15''.
The screen, depending on what angle I have the laptop opened will either show a pinkish screen over the background of the desktop or it will black out. Once in the right position I can work with it just fine. However the slightest change in angle and it will become very unstable. When I connect it to an external screen it works flawless.
So this is my conclusion. The display data cable must be broken as the display is fine and the gpu output is fine too.
Am I right with this assumption?
I just bought this cable here from iFixIt:
and hope that this is the right one.
Given the cable is the cause of error would it be advised to use this guide here:
to replace the data cable or would it be better to go to a local repair store with the new cable and let a professional do it? I have little experience with fixing laptops, I am better with the software part.
Is there a high chance I ruin the working screen and or cable doing this a first time round?
Thanks for all your input and help, it is really appreciated.
Is this a good question?
