Introduzione

Use this guide to replace the display assembly.

    • Remove the following ten screws securing the lower case to the upper case:

    • Two 2.3 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Eight 3.0 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your device.

    If don’t have one of those neat project mats, then you can use small pieces of flattened blu-tack to hold the screws. If you arrange them in the shape of your mac book cover, and put the screws down methodically, you can get a one-to-one mapping of the screws to the correct screw holes.

    Or you can use an ice tray where you put the screws and the parts in separate bays in the same order as they come in the instructions.

    This is great! I used a small magnetic white board, and wrote on it to identify the parts as I went. This whole process, from the fast shipment to the great instructions to the complete, high quality, tool kit has been great. I’m typing this comment on my resurrected laptop. Thank you! Sue

    • Gently pull the lower case away from the upper case.

    • Remove the lower case and set it aside.

  2. The lower case is connected to the upper case at the center, with two plastic clips. During reassembly, gently push down the center of the lower case to reattach the two plastic clips. During reassembly, gently push down the center of the lower case to reattach the two plastic clips.

  3. Remove the plastic cover adhered to the battery contact board.
    • Remove the plastic cover adhered to the battery contact board.

    This plastic cover wasn’t included with the new battery so I placed the original one back in. Was it supposed to go back in? This detail wasn’t clear since the original cover didn’t fit exactly over the newer battery connector. Plus any stickiness of adhesive that may have been there was gone.

    Hi, any issues with you computer after a year? I didn’t put mine back in either…

    Kevin, I forgot to place mine back in! How is your laptop doing without it?

    My “on button” isn't working. I was wondering can I just disconnect the battery like this, and plug it in to turn it on? Which is shown possible on earlier models on YouTube.

    Is it ok if I did put the plastic cover back in?

  8. Carefully lift the battery connector board up off the logic board. It is recommended to bend the battery cables just slightly, to keep the board suspended up above the logic board and out of the way.
    • Carefully lift the battery connector board up off the logic board.

    • It is recommended to bend the battery cables just slightly, to keep the board suspended up above the logic board and out of the way.

    • Do not fold the board completely over, or crease the cables, as this may damage the battery.

  9. Grasp the Interposer with tweezers. An interposer is the name for an interface that links one electrical connection to another. In this repair, it is the board connecting the battery to logic board.
    • Grasp the Interposer with tweezers.

    • An interposer is the name for an interface that links one electrical connection to another. In this repair, it is the board connecting the battery to logic board.

    • Lift the Interposer off the logic board and remove it.

    • Removing this board will ensure that the battery remains disconnected throughout your repair, preventing your computer from accidentally powering on. It's also a good idea to take it out so it doesn't fall out unexpectedly.

    WHy to remove battery contact board? Replace can happen without it also, right.

    How can I remove interposer I m not able to remove it

    Raunak - Replica

    you must lift it absolutely vertically, or it fouls against the locator pin in the corner- you can easily get the impression that it won’t come over the end of this pin- almost like it’s rivetted in. it isn’t. get a good grip on it with the tweezers in the centre hole & one of the sides, & lift it STRAIGHT up.

    What happens if the Battery Contact Board fails?

    racoon2956 - Replica

    Be extra careful when tightening down on the interposer. When I powered on upon completion, the battery was not connected. When I opened it back up, I saw that one of the little metal nubs holding the interposer in place had snapped off (the one on the side, not the corner). I was able to carefully tighten the wide head screw back in, watching the alignment, and the battery was successfully recognized. Hopefully the connection holds up.

    Doug Krieger - Replica

    So something similar happened to me. One the the metal alignment nubs snapped off, and when I went to screw down the interposer it started emitting a burning smell. Do you guys think I fried the board? There doesn’t look to be any visual damage but the computer wont turn on.

    Where can I buy a replacement interposer? I may have lost mine in the process of replacing the battery.

    Kris K - Replica

    I think I snapped off the nub as well, and the battery is not recognized . Replacing the interposer did not help, or trying to align it right. will have to try to replace the battery next.

    Kris K - Replica

    I really dont understand why to unplug so many parts if the SSD can be easily removed without all this effort. its not even connected to the battery..

    Gabriel Beolchi - Replica

    I was reassembling and put the interposer back and when the battery contact board touched the interposer, there was a little spark. Should I be worried?

  10. Use the tip of a spudger to push the iSight camera cable connector straight away from its socket on the logic board. It is recommended to carefully push on both sides of the connector to "walk" it out of its socket.
    • Use the tip of a spudger to push the iSight camera cable connector straight away from its socket on the logic board.

    • It is recommended to carefully push on both sides of the connector to "walk" it out of its socket.

    This was the hardest part of the repair for me. The iSight cable was really lodged in its socket. "Walking" the connector as the guide suggests -- i.e. pushing on each side alternately at a 45 degree angle (with more force than I expected) -- eventually worked.

  11. Move the iSight camera cable aside.
    • Move the iSight camera cable aside.

    It is pretty much impossible to do this step before you do the next one as the airport cables are in the way.

  12. Use the flat end of a spudger to pry and disconnect the three antenna cable connectors from the AirPort board. The three cables are coded with black sleeves of different lengths. During reassembly: Connect the long-sleeved cable to the socket closest to the ports.
    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry and disconnect the three antenna cable connectors from the AirPort board.

    • The three cables are coded with black sleeves of different lengths. During reassembly:

    • Connect the long-sleeved cable to the socket closest to the ports.

    • The short-sleeved cable connects next to the screw.

    • The remaining cable has no sleeve, and connects in the last empty socket, next to the fan.

    What does the J0, J1 and J2 connections represent on the Airport Card? I had an issue where the wifi and bluetooth went out and said "Not Available" so I replaced the I/O board and the airport card. The Wifi now works but Bluetooth is still showing not available. I wanted to know which connection meant what and to see if I could fix the issue. I have reseated the cables, deleted the Bluetooh.plist file and reset SMC, but bluetooth still appears as Not Available.

    The long-sleeved and short-sleeved antenna cables are switched compared to this guide, on my Macbook Pro A1425. Maybe note which order they are in on your machine, since apparently they differ. http://i.imgur.com/r9g9ZXS.jpg

    Will Bradley - Replica

    Be very careful with these, I wasn't and two of the cables detached from the connectors!!

    Felix Waller - Replica

    Likewise, the antenna connectors on my Macbook A1425 Late 2012 Retina were not in the order as described in this guide. From the fan side the connectors should be - no sleeve, long sleeve, short sleeve

    smurad - Replica

    As two other users have mentioned, the long-and short-sleeved cables for my late 2012/early 2013 A1425 were not in the order mentioned in the guide. If the laptop is positioned with fan in the upper left corner, the order (left to right) is short sleeve, long sleeve, no sleeve. If it is positioned as it is in the photo with the fan in the lower right, the order (left to right) is no sleeve, long sleeve, short sleeve.

    I also found my cables were not as described in the guide. They were as @kagnew described.

  13. Move the antenna cables aside, clear of the AirPort board.
    • Move the antenna cables aside, clear of the AirPort board.

    The display assembly has a metal retaining clip attached to the airport cables. I didn’t notice how this was positioned during disassembly, and it wasn’t mentioned in the guide. When I was reassembling the device, I found that it fit perfectly over the Torx T8 screws holding the display to the case. Attaching it here holds the airport cables nicely in place and out of the way.

  14. Grab the black pull tab secured to the display data cable lock and rotate it toward the DC-In side of the computer. Pull the display data cable straight out of its socket on the logic board. Do not lift up on the display data cable, as its socket is very fragile. Pull the cable parallel to the face of the logic board.

    I ended up stripping one of these out and had to use a T6 and some delicate pressure to get it out. Be careful.

    The T6 and a lot of downward pressure ended up doing the trick for me. YMMV

perfect tutorial! I fixed my screen completely destroyed falling down from my hands while a was falling asleep. Bought a new one on eBay (not original but perfect with the exception of the case slightly different in color and "texture".

Thanks iFix IT!

This walkthrough/guide is PERFECT! I barely tinker with electronics, but the high cost of repair made me want to try to install a new display assembly myself. Bless you, Sam Lionheart!

Virgil - Replica

This worked really well. The only issue I had was uninstalling the camera. The instructions to pull the data display cable parallel to logic board made sense in step 14. Unfortunately I didn't understand the similarities in step 10. Is it possible to repair the camera now that the slot is completely broken?

D Sh - Replica

Walk through worked perfect. Did it twice. The first time was just to make sure that wasn’t anything disconnect or any wires damage. The second time was to replace the screen. Works perfect.

Cody Milliron - Replica

Hi,

can I replace an damaged display of a MacBook Pro 13” late 2013 with a display from the early 2013 version?

I compared the high-def pictures of each cable connection and they seem to be identical, or am I wrong?

Thanks for the help.

Cheers

Hi there! Unfortunately as listed on the product page, the Late 2013 13” display is not compatible with the Early 2013, only the Mid 2014.
