My 13" MacBook Pro (mid-2012, unibody) doesn't work anymore and I decided to convert its display into an external monitor. I have taken apart display of my MacBook Pro from the original laptop but I can't order controller board from eBay/Amazon since I don't know which one will work for that screen. Can anybody help me with this? If somebody can tell me display panel number of the MacBook Pro from that year it would help me order board for mine.
I'm pretty sure you can get the part you need via Louis Rossman's site (mailin.repair) and probably schematics as well. Or st least pointers towards them.
If by "display panel number" you mean the Apple part # for a complete display unit for the 13" Unibody Mid 2012 MacBook Pro, then it's: 661-6594. Just to be clear, this is the Apple part # for the following models:
- MacBook Pro 13.3" 2.5GHz Core i5 (A1278) - Mid 2012 (MD101LL/A)
- MacBook Pro 13.3" 2.9GHz Core i7 (A1278) - Mid 2012 (MD102LL/A)
