MacBook Core Duo

MacBook Core Duo Display Data Cable Replacement

MacBook Core Duo Display Data Cable Replacement


Il Mio Problema

The display on my trusty 2007 Macbook started to flicker in a way that was very sensitive to the position of the screen, and could be improved by lightly squeezing the surround at the bottom left of the display. Apparently a bad connection.

La Mia Riparazione

First I used the ifixit guide to disembowel the MacBook, hoping to find a loose connection. Finding none, I ordered a new inverter cable from ifixit and it arrived in just a couple of days. Putting things back together was somewhat challenging, but the tips in the ifixit guide were very helpful.

Il Mio Consiglio

There are a lot of different sizes of tiny screws. As I went step by step through the guide, I put the screws and small parts in letter sized envelopes to keep them in order. Since I already had the screen taken apart, I also ordered and replaced the data cable. I reasoned that it was also subject to wear, and I might avoid another lengthy procedure.
