Look, I never comment on these things, but after 12 (YES 12) tries, the trick was to do just like Mark Simpson said - ATTACH THE CABLE BEFORE REPLACING THE STEEL TRAY!! I let out an audible gasp when the cable finally seated all the way - the white line had been lined up with the text on the Mboard below, but when it finally seated right it went ALL THE WAY to the flipped down connector. Maybe a hair worth of space, but really - it goes in farther than you think it does. And the only way I got enough leverage and the right angle was to do it with the screen and motherboard laid out *next* to each other. Then, once it seats, flip the latch, then fold the screen over into the tray on the other side and replace the steel frame. Go from there. Thanks!

@mmt Thanks for the report back, that darn screen ribbon just did not want to seat. @Powerbook Medic, thanks for the new(used) screen and tutorial! If only I found this place before I bought a new one. :P

The USB charging port on mine is broken. Can I replace just that or do I have to replace the whole mother board?

Sandra's comment is invaluable - I should have read it before putting the cover back on.

lessons learned; the replacement screen does not have either the top or botton metal cover with it. You must reuse both metal covers with the new screen. I initially forgot the top metal cover; it had stuck to the old display. You should place the new screen after installation into the old front cover and motherboard on a piece of bubblewrap to keep from putting pressure on the new screen while putting screws back on the motherboard rear cover. The video is OK on dissassembly, but is silent on screen replacement gotchas.

screen replacement successful after display ribbon connector jiggled into the motherboard connector. When placed in the motherboard connector there is a white line on the ribbon about 2mm out. This must be jiggled back and forth while applying slight forward force on the stiff part of the ribbon cable until the white line is even with the motherboard connector.

please describe the cable placement technique for the display into the motherboard. Is forward movement, not just lie flat, required.
