Is this LVDS cable look kinked?
Photos of the questionable LVDS cable:
This laptop was having ocassional LCD glitch issues for a while. Since it has persisted, I replaced the LVDS cable and applied new tape to make sure the problem is fixed; I have a few spare cables. If it doesn’t, I need to try a display to rule out the GPU (somewhat common on this model). I don’t think the cable will come loose:
HOWEVER, I inspected the old cable to see if it’s good to see if it can still be used. When doing that, I noticed multiple unusual kinks. I have attached pictures of the kinks that look unusual.
I don’t think this cable is kinked (or if it is, it doesn’t matter) but the ones I shown in the photos do raise some concerns. Does it look normal or does the cable I removed look like it had hidden damage that created the display problems?
