MacBook Pro 15" Mid 2015 (A1398) right hinge broken
Hello to you
My dear computer is in trouble
I heard a weird noise opening the lid… The right hinge of my MBP is now broken, just not loose, broken. (Like the axel on the right is broken and the lid can raise out of it axel)
My computer is working if I let it open and hold it with ducktape (Poor thing)
I see parts and tutorial on how to fix the left hinge. But I don’t see a tutorial on how to fix a right hinge. Is this fixable?
Or is it too complicated to fix?
(At C$ 10.74, The replacement part seems weird to me… there is a loooong wire that I do not identify beyond the AirPort antenna and camera connector… What is it and where does it go please? )
Apple stores offer screen replacement… Should I put 1000 $CA for a screen replacement or I should invest in new computer?
Thank you for taking the time to respond to me. =)
I went to the Genius bar earlier. They told me that the right hinge is officially broken. And that the sreen is not holding its connection to the bottom part of my MBP. And this would eventually cause bigger problem… (like Breaking cables and Breaking the screen…)
And he even help me find a replacement online… !
But, I find no tutorial on replacing the right hinge. When I open my MBP, I disconected the three AirPort antenna cables and the camera connector.
Like we can see in the screen replacement tutorial in step 8
When I open my MBP I clearly see the rights connectors on this picture but I have no clue on where the iSight connector is, as you can see on the left side of this picture.
My question is : Where do we plug the ISight connector…? And is there a tutorial on this?
If it goes Under the retina screen, I will not touch this.
This is too delicate. =)
Thanks again! =)
Also. mine is a mid 2015, but it must be a similar configuration…
Here it says that iSight cable is Almost impossible to replace without breaking the screen… Help!
