PowerBook G4 LCD question

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but will a high-res screen from an A1138 work on an A1095?

 

This would be a nice upgrade for my A1095 if it would work. 

 

Thanks!

The screen assembly itself will not be a straight swap form memory, can't remember the details of connector differences but I know a screen assembly swap on the A11xx PBs needs the LoBo removing, and on the older ones it does not, might just be cable/antenna routing that necessitates this but might be actual physical connector differences as well.

 

I've done numerous screen assembly and even panel swaps on the A1046, and A1095s but I've only got the one A1106 and I remember being mildy annoyed that various bit's weren't compatible with the older chassis models.

 

The panel itself may be transferable but I can't say for sure as I've not tried...

Thanks for the info!

 

I’ll probably just try and find an actual a1138 with the high-res display already present and just leave my a1095 be.
