MacBook Core Duo Inverter Cable Replacement

Difficult

Mijn probleem

My Macbook screen kept going black as I moved it. I finally got tired of it, and went online to troubleshoot the issue. I found expert advice at iFixit.

Mijn oplossing

OK, I ordered the wrong inverter cable, because you can't really tell with my model until you open it up. So, I would recommend ordering both inverter cables and then send the one back that you don't use. I had to wait a few days to get the right one, but iFixit got it to me in just a few days. Very impressed. My son repaired it in about 2 hours.

Mijn advies

Just order both the Santa Rosa and Core Duo Inverter Cable and send the one back you don't use once you find out for sure which one you need. I am sending the wrong one back and their customer service was really responsive. I was so impressed that I just ordered a replacement battery and now my old Macbook is good to go for another 4 years ( I hope).

This is a tricky repair and I would say, not for a novice. My son has repaired many desktops, but never a Macbook, and there were lots! of tiny screws and parts.
