LED backlight replacement ribbon damaged during lcd repair

Hi all,

While replacing the screen in my MBA 11.6" I damaged the led backlight cable. Does any body know where I can source a replacement? Unfortunately only half the screen lights up now.

Thanks in advance.

Josh

joshlismore,

Sorry for my delay... busy week.

Unfortunately, I did not find any good pictures in my research that would clarify the right position of the cable. Maybe this link will help? Picture #2 shows you the ribbon cable... Or this picture here (Picture #3; click to enlarge)?

Adding to this issue, I found an Why is the backlight not working?, addressing the same question (further down). Unfortunately, I do not own a MBA and have never fixed the screen in order to be able to give you a definite answer.

In general, the defective cable is not fixable. And, since it is really difficult to get (and if, then it seems to be really expensive), I would look out for a used LCD Back cover, like this one here.

Hi joshlismore,

Here is a site that offers a used strip. Unfortunately, this company is located in UK.

I hope this helps.

Thanks Steffen. I found that site too but we're out of stock. Incidental do you know the orientation of the strip when you connect it? I've had to twist the cable around on itself just to get the LED to light but, thats when I damaged the ribbon. Just doesn't seem right

Thanks, joshlismore, for your feedback. I apologize that the cable is out of stock; didn't notice that when I provided the link. Unfortunately, I don't know the orientation of the strip. But would it be possible for you to post some pics (close-ups) of the cable where it is broke as well as a pic of the connector where the cable is supposed to be connected with?

Thanks for your help here Steffen. Please see attached the photos of the torn ribbon in the original post.
