LCD Connector broken on Logic Board
I bought this faulty macbook off eBay because it was starting up but the screen wasn't lighting up, so i stripped her down and found the LCD screen was broken (big crack from top to bottom). I replaced the screen and it still doesn't work, but noticed the 30 pin connector on the logic board was damaged about 13 pins in from the left. Holding a torch behind the apple logo, i can see the folder with a ? in it, which id expect to see because it hasn't got a HDD in it. It looks as though the previous owner has tried to test for voltage at these pins but has done more harm than good. I dont think i can just simply solder a new connector in, so my question is, can i bypass these 2 broken pins and directly solder thin wires to where ever theses pins go? Any ideas out there? Pics are avaliable if needed.
Many Thanks, Sean
