    Hi everyone,

    I was a bit stupid today. I got new rubber feet for MBP 2013 13" I have.
    Old ones fell of and left some glue and I was removing the glue when I scratched inside of it.

    It turns out in one of them I scratched cable for monitor since now it's not showing picture.
    It reacts to changing brightness but nothing else so I suppose I scratched a cable and I've uploaded some photos to show you.

    I've tried all software things like resetting PRAM, booting in safe more, I am afraid this is physical issue.

    Can I expect it can be replaced? How can I go about it?

    It looks more like you damaged the connector on the logic board to me.

    That's one hell of a scratch. You'll either have to get the entire logic board replaced or find someone who can replace the LVDS connector.
