LCD screen fading to white on macbook - Replaced with Antiglare LCD
1 - 2 Stunden
My screen kept fading to white on my Mac unibody notebook (A1342). It would work if I put pressure on the side of the screen, but it got old holding the screen anytime I wanted to use my computer.
I replaced the LCD with the antiglare screen (IF163-02404) and it works, sort of.
I no longer have to hold the screen to use my computer. However, the built in brightness controls on the the keyboard no longer control the screen. Also, when the computer goes to sleep, the screen does not light back up, on wake. Additionally, on boot up, I no longer see the white spinning circle. The screen stays black, during boot up, and only turns on when it gets to the login screen.
I've turned off the sleep function, for now. So far this is still better than having the screen constantly fade to white.
Videos on YouTube are helpful, when you get to the steps regarding the video cable.
