    First of all, my english is not very good, i'll try to make myself clear.

    A couple of weeks ago, I cracked the LCD display of my MBP 2.2 ghz A1226 (Santa Rosa). I found a really good deal on eBay for a complete screen assembly (lcd, front and back bezel, iSight, etc), it was really cheap and supposed to be tested and working so I bought it.

    I received and installed it today, everything went good but when I turned on my MBP, the image on the lcd had horizontal lines moving in it. The screen is glitching and all fuzzy.

    When I plug the MBP on an external display, everything works perfectly so it's not the graphic card.

    What could cause that problem ?
    Bad cables, bad lcd ?

    I made a video with my iPhone , the quality is not perfect but you can clearly see the problem.

    Thanks alot !

    I've seen that before, but it's been too long--I don't recall exactly what it was. Reseat the LVDS cable at the logic board. If the problem goes away, then you're done. Pinch the display assembly around the edges and see if anything changes. If it does, then you have a bad LCD.

    This is most likely going to boil down to a bad LCD. Hopefully, they gave you a warranty.
