My LCD is no longer working and doing what I see has been a problem on here for many on the past. It's working then black, then working a bit, then black again and now has been black for weeks so I think it is finally gone. Not sure if it is my screen or motherboard or ribbon cable but the ribbon cable is cheap enough to try and then I give up and I am replacing the whole unit I guess:-( When I took out the ribbon cable to inspect it I noticed that two of the end little metal strips on the ribbon cable where it connects to the motherboard have been scratched off (see picture before-although not as clear as I would like it!). Is this enough to kill my screen connection? Anyone have thoughts or know where I might get a ribbon cable now? I know they are a challenge to find at times. Thanks so much to anyone that can help!!!
