Hi Carsten! I tried cleaning it but didn’t work. Picked up a new cable from here, and now works flawlessly. Highly recommend anyone reading this to just buy a replacement cable too when you do the repair to rule out a faulty part. Thanks!
Hi! So I successfully replaced my trackpad (the center screw got stripped so I had to use the superglue technique and threw it away), and the trackpad works perfectly well but without haptics. My replacement didn’t come with a new cable so used the old one after cleaning of the end (it had some blackening on the portion connected to the trackpad). Is my trackpad a bad unit or should I try replacing the cable first?
