PB 1400 Case Hinge Failure

Recommended Posts

My PB 1400 was showing that characteristic cracking on the rear display case cover, on either side of the Apple logo. I attempted to repair this (by strengthening the area with glue) but managed to destroy the -very Spindlery- mount points for the left hinge. It's beyond repair - too much brittle plastic has cracked and fallen away.

 

Wegener media sells rear display case covers for 19.50, but I'm wondering whether I should go with that or replace the entire display and then part out what's good from the old one. Advice?

Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8-o That's great news about those $19.95 back covers! :approve:

 

If you haven't got any dead pixels or any other issues with your . . . wait . . . you didn't say 1400c did you? That might change my advice just a tad!

 

Any well heeled 1400 has just GOTTA have that Active Matrix LCD! 8-)

i have a 1400 with a completely busted bottom case. But the upper display is still good, and the lappy still works, i booted it from a CD, whats left of the internal CD drive actually still works. Missing/broken plastics and faceplate.

It's a 'c. Display is fine except one full-on blue subpixel. I hide it with the Stuffit Expander icon; it's not noticeable. Backlight does seem a bit dim outdoors though.

techknight, are you offering yours to LC_575? Your post could be read that way, or as a simple aside.
