I've tried to replace the display on my MacBook Pro (ME294ll/a) Late 2013 but the image is not displayed correctly. It looks like this:

My brother had the same problem:

…but he just reconnected the ribbon cable and the screen began to work correctly. I tried several times to reconnect the ribbon cable, but to no avail.

Does anyone know what could be the problem?


This happened to me as well. If your MacBook Pro was purchased between February 2011 and December 2013, Apple determined that a small percentage these systems may exhibit distorted video, no video, or unexpected system restarts. Check out this link for the official Apple report.


Most likely you got a bad replacement display. It could be the cable, connector or another part. It could also be the GPU, or associated video hardware. But I would bet on the replacement screen being the culprit.

  • I tried to change the connector from crashed display – it didn't help. GPU is also ok because I use external monitor right now. Replacement screen also must be suitable (model: 661-8310). I've bought a brand new. – Pavel Kryutsou Jul 29 '15 at 20:50
