I'm writing this post because i have the lcd assembly of a 17" macbook pro early 2011 and I would like to transform it into an external monitor. I have bought a LVDS controller suitable for the led panel of the macbook (LP171WU6-TLB2), this controller has DVI and HDMI port and a LVDS interface to connect to the panel. I don't want to remove the glass of the lcd assembly in order to reach the i-pex connector that is backside the panel, so i would like to use the male lvds cable that normally is connected to the logic board to interface the controller. I have seen that there are 24 wires attached to the 40-pin ipex connector, i know the pinout of the ipex connector (see the photo attached) but i don't know which signal brings each wire. If I would be able to know the pinout of the wire i wouldn't have problem to connect the monitor to the controller, cutting the wires and inserting them to the controller board. Please, could you tell me more about the lvds interface and maybe the pinout of the 24 wires attached to the ipex connector? Till now i know there are: x3 green wires x3 red wires x5 blue wires x13 yellow wires Tot=24 wires And the connection should be: GND VCC V EEDID DATA EEDID RA1- RA1+ RB1- RB1+ RC1- RC1+ RCLK1- RCLK1+ RA2- RA2+ RB2- RB2+ RC2- RC2+ RCLK2- RCLK2+ Vdc (+) Vdc () Tot:22 And the other two wires? Thank you very much in advance for help.
