    I have a White Mac Unibody and about 7 months ago I had the screen replaced. I am having a problem with a loose screen connection. If I bring in all the papers, do you think Apple will do it for free? I do not have applecare left anymore:(.

    Try, be nice, and if that fails you with Apple, promptly exit and - find your local friendly nerd. ;)

    I've yet to open up a white unibody, but if that's the model you have - your Apple care recently expire? As in, very recently? I'd call Apple, or head in and try your luck.

    Edit:

    Actually, you had your screen replaced 7 months ago - under Apple care? If so, they might even be obligated, as that sounds like a workmanship issue.

    I'm not so much thinking part defect, more of an "installation error". If you can see the connector - and that it's loose - maybe they messed something up on the install?

    It'd be one thing if it was your optical drive, and you had problems with your LCD connector - but if they changed your display, and you're having issues (again) related to that assembly.... that's a bit too coincidental.

    This is what happened. They gave it to me for free instead of having to pay $700. I got very lucky and now really appreciate apple.

    EEEP! That looks like a cracked LCD, or even heat damage, but definitely not a loose connection! Thankfully you got it fixed for free though :)

    well they didn't fix it. they aid it wasn't the connection it was the display. I'm not paying $260 for something that i can live with.

    $260 is a good price, Compared to $700 for a new display or whatever it is.
