Will a Display late08 fit to my MacBook Pro?
i've got a MacBook Pro 15" mid09 2.53 GHz with a broken screen. Now i could have a Display from a MBP 15" late08 for low money.
Now i would ask, if anybody knows if this display will fit to my MacBook Pro? Optical they look the same..
Now i mounted a display from a late08. I just had to replace the cables to the mainboard with the old ones. Now everything's working (the display, camera, brightness sensor, wireless). The only thing that's not working is: When i close the lid, the notebook doesn't go into the standby mode.. I already have done a SMC reset.
A PRAM reset don't helped. I completely mounted the late08 screen, except the two cables, that are connected to the mainboard, these are from the original screen. It's a glossy screen.
I tested it now, thanks for the hint :). on my old screen respectively on my MacBook its on the left side, and on my actual screen its on the right side. When i hold a magnet directly under the left speaker, the MacBook goes sleeping.. I'm thinking about buying a little magnetstripe and glow it on the left side on the screen.
So, i took a fridge magnet, pulled the sticker from the pizza delivery service off, afterwards i glew double-sided adhesive tape on, and cut it on a small size. It works great, and it's inconspicuous.
Here's a picture:
