Satisfying Screen Replacement
30 minuten - 1 uur
As most know, the MacBooks van get extremely hot while running due to some manufacturing "flaw", if you will. In my apartment, I have no windows, so I'm the morning I open the door to let some light in. I live in Louisiana, so the humidity is ridiculous at times. The hother MacBook didn't mix well with the humid weather once I opened my door and cause a condensation layer to form under my MacBook! The screen went out (no backlight) but everything else was completely functional. I thought changing the screen would help so I decided to fix it myself.
The repair went great, as far as replacing the screen goes. Keeping track of the screws is the most important thing!! unfortunately, the backlight still does not work and I will bring it to apple with a pity story to see if I can get some type of replacement. If not, I will attempt to replace the logic board myself!
bags or labels for screws is a must.
The tools provided by ifixit are okay,
however, there's a multi-screwdriver but set at home Depot that has every bit needed for tiny screws for about $5.00.
