Display blacks out past 100 degrees open
I have a MacBook 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo - very last of the FW models. A few months ago the display started to go dark when opened past 100 degrees. When the angle is kept to 100 degrees or less, the machine functions perfectly. If I open past that angle, and shine a powerful LCD flashlight onto it, I can read the display easily. Assume the problem is with the inverter cable. Can anyone diagnose it past that? Like pinched at the hinge and pulling off the inverter board connector? The machine is obviously not unusable as I can read it at 100 degrees - just not crystal sharp. When I am not typing, I stick a 1.5 inch book under the front edge and use a wireless mouse :-)
Is this a good question?
