简介

Use this guide to replace the LCD cable connected inside the hinge of your MacBook Pro Retina Display Assembly.

    • Remove the following ten screws securing the lower case to the upper case:

    • Two 2.3 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Eight 3.0 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your device.

    If don’t have one of those neat project mats, then you can use small pieces of flattened blu-tack to hold the screws. If you arrange them in the shape of your mac book cover, and put the screws down methodically, you can get a one-to-one mapping of the screws to the correct screw holes.

    Or you can use an ice tray where you put the screws and the parts in separate bays in the same order as they come in the instructions.

    This is great! I used a small magnetic white board, and wrote on it to identify the parts as I went. This whole process, from the fast shipment to the great instructions to the complete, high quality, tool kit has been great. I’m typing this comment on my resurrected laptop. Thank you! Sue

    • Removing this board will ensure that the battery remains disconnected throughout your repair, preventing your computer from accidentally powering on. It's also a good idea to take it out so it doesn't fall out unexpectedly.

    How can I remove interposer I m not able to remove it

    Raunak - 回复

    you must lift it absolutely vertically, or it fouls against the locator pin in the corner- you can easily get the impression that it won’t come over the end of this pin- almost like it’s rivetted in. it isn’t. get a good grip on it with the tweezers in the centre hole & one of the sides, & lift it STRAIGHT up.

  9. Use the tip of a spudger to push the iSight camera cable connector straight away from its socket on the logic board. It is recommended to carefully push on both sides of the connector to "walk" it out of its socket.

    • It is recommended to carefully push on both sides of the connector to "walk" it out of its socket.

    This was the hardest part of the repair for me. The iSight cable was really lodged in its socket. "Walking" the connector as the guide suggests -- i.e. pushing on each side alternately at a 45 degree angle (with more force than I expected) -- eventually worked.

    • The three cables are coded with black sleeves of different lengths. During reassembly:

    • The short-sleeved cable connects next to the screw.

    • The remaining cable has no sleeve, and connects in the last empty socket, next to the fan.

    The long-sleeved and short-sleeved antenna cables are switched compared to this guide, on my Macbook Pro A1425. Maybe note which order they are in on your machine, since apparently they differ. http://i.imgur.com/r9g9ZXS.jpg

    Be very careful with these, I wasn't and two of the cables detached from the connectors!!

    Likewise, the antenna connectors on my Macbook A1425 Late 2012 Retina were not in the order as described in this guide. From the fan side the connectors should be - no sleeve, long sleeve, short sleeve

    smurad - 回复

    As two other users have mentioned, the long-and short-sleeved cables for my late 2012/early 2013 A1425 were not in the order mentioned in the guide. If the laptop is positioned with fan in the upper left corner, the order (left to right) is short sleeve, long sleeve, no sleeve. If it is positioned as it is in the photo with the fan in the lower right, the order (left to right) is no sleeve, long sleeve, short sleeve.

    I also found my cables were not as described in the guide. They were as @kagnew described.

  12. Move the antenna cables aside, clear of the AirPort board.
    • Move the antenna cables aside, clear of the AirPort board.

    The display assembly has a metal retaining clip attached to the airport cables. I didn’t notice how this was positioned during disassembly, and it wasn’t mentioned in the guide. When I was reassembling the device, I found that it fit perfectly over the Torx T8 screws holding the display to the case. Attaching it here holds the airport cables nicely in place and out of the way.

  13. Grab the black pull tab secured to the display data cable lock and rotate it toward the DC-In side of the computer. Pull the display data cable straight out of its socket on the logic board. Do not lift up on the display data cable, as its socket is very fragile. Pull the cable parallel to the face of the logic board.

    I ended up stripping one of these out and had to use a T6 and some delicate pressure to get it out. Be careful.

    The T6 and a lot of downward pressure ended up doing the trick for me. YMMV

    I was able to remove this plastic peace by sliding to the right, and then it came out. You need to apply some force in order to do this.

    There’s a minor addition on how you do this. There are covers on both the ends of this clutch cover and they are connected like a hinge. For some models, it’s sliding this clutch cover to right and then you need to turn this clutch cover anti-clockwise and you’ll hear some clicking sounds affirming that the clutch cover is disconnected. Atleast this worked in my case :) .

    Rahul Kushwah - 回复

    This plastic cover is clearly not meant to be removed. There are small plastic catches under it as well as on the two plastic end covers. I found that it was impossible to remove it without breaking them. Sliding to the right is correct, but unfortunately the plastic was quite brittle and mine snapped in half.

Hi,

Can anyone help me ? It might be possible that my MacBook Pro 13” early 2015 restarts by it self once in a few minutes because this cable is slightly damaged? It had before LCD problems and has been serviced. As I have noticed, when I touch the cable and move it a little bit, computer restarts immediately, so I thought this might be the restarting problem.

(I have to say that I have already tried other options : I have fresh reinstalled the operating system, so theres no software issue, I have repasted the processor, I have checked the cables connections). The only strange thing is that it doesn’t turn on with the battery disconnected…

Does anyone have any suggestion?

Thanks a lot!!

Are there instructions using the MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013)? The inside is completely different. Alas.

Jennifer Dibble Fanning - 回复

I'm getting this because the hing broke. The real problem is both hinges have broken. Seems like the other hinge is not possible to replace. Is that right? Will just this one side be enough to open with light use? My Mac is a early 2013 15inch pro. Model A1398
