27-inch Apple LED Cinema Display + video cable replacement

Posted on 2011-09-29

I have a 27-inch Apple LED Cinema Display and my cat chewed through one of the three video cables.  That cable doesn't come free unless you take it apart.  But does anyone know if they sell just that cable?  I haven't been able to find it anywhere.

Most of the apple product only can be find on apple website. Never yet for me to find one that are "pirated" and not many second hand available on Mac.

You can also search appstore for cable keywords, this link will search the cable keywords, 

you can change it if you have specific name. It does not come free though.

Officially not user serviceable.  Here's how to open the case

Will be mini DisplayPort cable kitty has chewed through or the MagSafe power lead if kitty now looking electrocuted.  The remaining cable is USB.

She chewed through the Display Port Cable, that the new Thunderbolt cable right?
I've searched everywhere for the part and haven't been able to locate one.

The part you need isn't commercially available.  You ca either get Apple to repair or use the teardown to get to the soldered connection inside the case and use  something like an iWires Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Cable to rewire. Depends on how good you are with a soldering iron :)

My soldering skills are not that sharp.  I pass on this one.  Thanks
