First of all hi to you guys (and gals ) I've been reading MacRumors for quite some time now (mostly for iPhone problems) from 2g to 4s. Managed to find solutions for all of my problems, but for this one i found no solution I know i'm not the only one, and there are couple of dozen of problems like mine but, here goes. I bought MBP 13" mid 2010. The "master" aka previous owner tried to fix the headphone jack and managed to mess up the LVDS cable and connector. He broke that top piece (used to lock the cable) top metal piece and two pins on LVDS cable. And long story short, screen is black (no picture, no backlight) and that's normal. I've ordered LVDS cable to change it, and i'm asking you now, is there any contact at that top metal part (is it vital for connection) and if so, is it changeable ? To mention that the MBP works perfectly on external display, so i'ts not logic board or graphics. Thanx in advance, i'll bite my nails while waiting for the LVDS cable.
