So I just revived a Mac portable (non backlit), and now have it boot up from an external HDD. I bought it off CL for $50, and following great advice from this forum, I recapped the board, recelled the battery. I also had to change one of the power FET that had died. So everything worked as planned. Only the HDD decided that it was dead, and reading some of the posts here, I wasn't very surprised. There is just one more detail that I need to fix, and could not find a solution here. My LCD screen shows a couple of horizontal lines. These lines are "on" or white, and dot not turn off (go black). One line is actually a line and a half, with only half the second line being "dead". So my question is the following: is it something that can be fixed ? Does it have to do with the video memory, the LCD itself, bad contacts ? Thanks in advance. Once I have this fixed, my next job will be to change or fix the HDD. Thanks !
