So she fell onto a tile floor; closed/asleep, with only a slight dent on the right/front corner of the base and scratch on back right, with scratches to display front/back right corners. She wakes/reboots normally, but the display shows Horizontal black/white lines. In messing with it, I found that the display responds to both point and dragging pressure on the lower right corner of the screen, by almost restoring properly. When i did briefly get it working this way, the cursor responded and computer did operate normally. Glass is not cracked. Opening/closing the display does have some effect on the image. Hinges creak.

I opened it up using your instructions, removing display and screen, checking all connections... with no improvement. I thought it might be the data cable?, but am not sure; it does have the original nvidia graphics card. I'm inclined to use the send in service. Do you have any thoughts on this problem, and, if i use send in and the graphic card has failed, is there an apple warranty on that ya'll are authorized to repair? I remember something about a recall, that might apply. Thanks so much.

That would typically be the display data cable, which usually gets pinched or partially cut in a fall, so that would be the first thing to inspect.

So that would be this LVDS cable?
