    Hi All

    My girfriends black 2007 intel MacBook screen has a crack in it:(

    I've seen there are quite a few on Ebay - but could somebody be kind enough to let me know what the part number is?

    Many thanks,

    :):)

    LP133WX1-TLA1
    N133I1-L01
    B133EW01
    LTN133W1-L01

    These are the LCDs that originally went into the machine.

    LT133DEVJK00

    That is the only LCD that is currently available. It is made by Toshiba. The originals are no longer available in better than refurbished or refinished condition. Refinishing is a process like waxing a floor, to a screen's polarizer(the front part that you stare at all day).

    The LT133DEVJK00 is cheaper. However, you have to remove one big black pad from the back so the Apple will light up. You have to remove three tiny black pads to avoid having pressure points on the LCD. Pressure points are those things that come up when you press your finger on the LCD.

    The LT133DEVJK00 also requires calibration so the colors will look proper. Upon initial install, it will tint blue.

    I have about 200 LP133WX1-TLA1 left that are new in unopened factory packaging. Once they're out, I'll be stuck selling the LT133DEVJK00.

    Good luck with your repair!

    Thanks so much for your detailed response:):).

    Do I need anything else ( components ) to change the screen?


    :)


    PS - Having looked on Ebay - there are plenty of all kinds ( part numbers ) listed - so is there a preferred number to go for ( they all cost more or less the same ).

    Also I attach a photo of the model I'm taking about - just to make sure:)

    It doesn't matter what model you buy on eBay. They'll send you whatever they have in stock. It is well accepted practice in this industry to sell compatible models, and to post product pages/ads for every single different model that goes into a machine.

    If you mean color calibration, "color LCD calibrated" works pretty well. Although the original LP133WX1-TLA1 is ideal. The Toshiba is a pain in the ass to work with, removing little black pads to prevent pressure points.

    I'm glad it all worked out. What model LCD did you find that worked for you? And where did you get it? It may help others who break their laptop who have this problem. These are hard to come by now.

    it was a cheap Toshiba, bought on eBay, good quality and works perfectly. First however an other company, despite stating several brands in the description, sent a noname one, which had poor materials so I sent it back straight away.

    Black Macbook

    Hi everyone...I am wondering what the best way to replace my MacBook screen? Who do you guys trust with parts online and what part should I order? I have a big black blotchy crack in a corner and it's gotten worse.

    Also any one have the sides or bottom of plastic casing strip away? Is there a kit to replace this? It's only stripping on bottom and sides of keyboard?

    I love my macbook and really no one in the mac store is giving me any attention when I mention I have this one, which is kinda dissapointing, but I would like to back up my stuff and find a way to make it faster.

    Any places or things or suggestions to make my macbook like new are appreciated. My husband is pretty mechanically inclined, so he can do some of the repairs.

    Thanks...
