    hi all,

    Can anyone of you tell me what's going wrong with this macbook air LVD screen?

    The colocar that should be OK is green. Take a look at video. It flickers. Movement or heat/cold affect the flickering.



    Thanks in advance
    Regards
    Fak

    Hook it up to an external monitor to see if the same thing happens. If not, it's a cable, logic board, or screen issue.

    Hard to tell from the video, but it looks like you're rotating the display in order to trigger the flickering. If that's the case, that's a classic sign of a bad LVDS cable (cable that connects the LCD panel to the logic board).

    You can replace the LVDS cable alone, but it's kind of a tricky install if you're not comfortable working on your own electronics, and the bezel will look like crap when you get it back on. So you're probably looking at a replacement display assembly.
