Hi everybody,
I apologize to bump this thread out but I would like to share my experience in this area.
To reply to the previous message even if the author might not be interested anymore, I would like to say the answer is closer to "No" than "Yes".
But, if you are a DIY, the reply is "Yes".
In fact, like told in the post "http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=7455007", the LVDS cable is not wired like common laptop LVDS cable. You do need to change the wiring to do so.
Once done, you will have to change the EDID data in the eeprom. For my own, I directly took the eeprom from my old screen and I placed it to my new one (rather than trying to program the EEPROM).
Moreover, you must adapt the screen housing to fit in the Imac (mechanical part).
The original screen comes with two CCFL. If you use a screen with only one, you will need to take out one CCFL from the old screen, add black tape on it and place it in the Imac. If not, the inverter will shut down and you will not have back light.
If you are ready to do that, you can use near whatever screen you want. For my own, I had success with LP171wp4 and BP170W01 screen. I kept the LP171WP4 in my imac 17 finally.
-If you are interested to learn how I did, let me know, I will do a tutorial.
+If you are interested to learn how I did, let me know, I will explain it in details.
Best Regards
