What did I break? LCD fuzzy and green, buzzing.
I was attempting to replace the hard drive on this mac with an ssd. Everything was going great till tried to turn the thing on without plugging in a cable all the way, the lcd was fuzzy and off color.
I shut down, unplugged power and then double checked all connections. This is when I found the unplugged cable near the top right on the screen that I had forgotten to plug back in before turning it on. I hooked everything back up correctly this time but the screen still looks bad and there is a buzzing coming from somewhere. Not loud, sort of a hiss/buzz combo. I've tried several times making sure connections are good but no dice.
Am I screwed? What did I break? Can it be replaced?
Это хороший вопрос?
Check the teeth of the cables coming off of the LCD that hook into the logic board, along with the port itself. If either are damaged, replace. If it's the port on the logic board, you're looking at a new logic board or a component level repair involving some de and resoldering.
