lid bent, screen has crazy colour strip on LHS
Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 13" (Unibody) Specs
Identifiers: Late 2008/Aluminum - MB467LL/A - MacBook5,1 - A1278 - 2254
a1278 was dropped on left rear corner (near power socket). a 2" vertical strip of colourful 'interference' started appearing along the left edge of the screen. pulling the right top corner of the screen used to help, but it is almost constant now and pulling the corner no longer helps.
i tried striping the machine down to remove the lcd and then straightening the lid, but it is still as bad as ever when i put it back together.
what would be the next steps? i saw threads saying that some people had padded the video connector inside the lid with bicycle tube rubber. others seem to have padded between the lcd and the lid with paper.
many thanks for any suggestions,
