Macbook Air Display issue

Hey guys,

I have a Macbook Air sitting here on my desk that is having some display issues. When the computer boots up I get blue lines, almost like a blue tinted test pattern. When I apply pressure to the bezel just inside of both hinges, the display corrects until I remove pressure. This leads me to believe that I need to replace the LVDS cable, but I don't want to go ahead until I've heard your opinions on it.

If anyone has done this kind of repair, do you have any tips or hints?

Thanks guys

You probably won't need to replace it, just reseat it and make sure it's secured in place :)

I opened it up and I do in fact need to replace the cable. It was a pretty involved process, not difficult, but time consuming. For everyone reading this, the most difficult part is not bending the bezel when you remove it.
