 Post subject: Macbook Pro replacement display faulty?

Today I tried to replace the display of my late 2006 MBP with the one I ordered at PBM. Installation itself went fine, but when I switched the Mac on, the view was not that I expected.

I took a picture of the screen for better explanation:

The font is hardly readable, the whole screen seems dim and overexposed (too little contrast) at the same time and there appears to be a gap between the pixels. It looks kind of grainy.

When I plugged a Cinema Display into the DVI-port, the image was fine (image below is low quality):

I checked the display cable and it‘s contacts, but the image didn‘t change.
When I unplugged the display and left the inverter plugged, the (grey) image was smooth and didn‘t have those lines.

I now wonder if I got a broken display or if it is the display cable or maybe something completely different.

I hope someone can help me with my problem.

Cheers,
Jonas

I would speak to customer support. They'll probably want to compare the model of your original screen with what we sent you to see if your original screen was perhaps a weird revision. If your original screen is partially viewable, you may want to try installing that back to make sure the issue goes away.
