Broken lvds connector on logic board, work around?


i've written about 3 topics before about my macbook air with a white screen. In summary:

After replacement of screen the lcd screen is white but the macbook work perfect on external screen. I've already replaced the lvds cable, lcd screen en cleaned the logic board. The problem remains....

So it must be a logic board failure, probably a small resistor, but to find it... a needle in a haystack!

So as a last possibility i was wondering if it is, theoretically, possible to create some sort of micro dvi --> lvds connector to let the macbook think the internal screen is an external one. I will lose my external connector but thats ok.

Just wondering.. if anyone else has a solution, feel free to comment!

Hi, sadly you're probably correct about the logic board failure. Generally issues with black screen, lines, white screen, etc. are caused by liquid damage, failing GPU or display fuse. I've heard of guys doung component level soldering & they say it's easy & a cheap part, but unless you have a rework station & know which one it is it's impossie.

As for a work around, I've seen guys with LVDS cable extentions & other things, but they were hacked up & spliced DIY style. You're just going to have to use an external monitor or sell it & buy a new one.
