Can I replace my A1466 screen with a screen from a A1369?
I have an early-2015 MBA 13” (A1466, last 6 of serial BXG944) whose backlight began intermittently going out yesterday. It finally went out for good today after shorter and shorter durations of the backlight working (it would go out, I’d restart or close and re-open the laptop and it would come on for a few minutes then the backlight would flick out again, repeat and repeat). The LCD screen itself remains functional. It seems like the problem is either the LVDS cable or the “p” fuse. I have another dead (logic board water damage to a battery thingie) MBA (A1369) that I can use to cannibalize whatever parts are needed to repair the 1466... is this possible? What should I do - replace the whole clamshell display? Seems like this would be easier than soldering parts... advice?
Is this a good question?
