My incase case for my macbook pro is causing the hinges to crack

The black incase shell I have on my Macbook pro is causing crack in the upper bezel around the display. Is this common?

    I had the same problem, too bad it ended up breaking my case around the hinges.

I've had the same problem when I had first installed my case. One day, when it was on the table, my friend leaned on it and there was a loud crack, which got me scared. Due to this, the cracking stopped. Turns out, there is a long tab to attach to where the fan opening is. Just flip your mac over, and push down hardly on the edge of the case, this way, it will be fully attached. Incase makes things perfectly, so if you don't install it correctly, it wont work. Hope this helps. Also, these instructions are not found anywhere.

If you've already tried turning up the brightness of the screen (the "sun" icon), then you may have a problem with the backlight (possibly burnt out, in which case you'd need a new backlight bulb). See this post for more details:

If the laptop still works you were lucky. The screen will die eventually when you open the lid too far again.

Coffee spilt on macbook pro


When liquids meet electronics, you can't waste time. Conductive liquids cause most of the initial damage. Immediately unplug the laptop from its power cord, and pull out the battery. Don't bother closing programs or saving data. Stand it up on it's side to get rid of excess coffee. THEN...
Depending on your available tools and disassembly skills, remove more parts. Unscrew the outer case, and remove the plastic shell to expose the internal circuits. You can disassemble parts even further, separating individual components to help them dry. Do as much of this as you are comfortable with. Coffee is corrosive so you want to have ready an alcohol-based cleaning agent and q tips.

Depending on how far the crack goes, you may need just to replace the screen bezel, not a hard job. These go for ludicrous money 2nd hand and I enclose an example I found that would fit your laptop
(fix ya please note, I'm not promoting ebay)

An alternative would be to fill the gap with some epoxy putty (would spoil the look of the Mac but would at least help keep the bezel together)

How difficult is it to replace a CD-ROM drive in a MacBook Pro?


It is very difficult to replace an Apple Superdrive and is not recommended to attempt to do so yourself unless you have pre-existing experience in doing so. Before resorting to such desperate measures, try testing your hardware with the Apple Hardware Test. You will find detailed instructions on how to use AHT here.

OK!!

If you wish i could provide you a place where you could order Repair Manual. However, if you would like to replace screen, follow the below guid e:-

http://repair4laptop.org/notebook_lcd_display.html

Check for MacBooks section. Whether it's 17" or 18", the basics would remain the same. So, check and i am pretty positive, you would be able to change the LCD screen.


Also, look at one more Great Guide ;-

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
