Screen issues, Back light dims & goes out
I have a 2016 macbook touchbar 13" and one month after the 1 year warranty I noticed this "stage lights" issue. 5 months later the issue is worse now.
Yesterday, I noticed that when I tilt the screen back beyond the 90 degree angle the screen goes black. Then if I move it back to 90 degrees it gets illuminated. But the angles vary a lot. Sometimes it gets illuminated only If I move it back to 60 degrees and sometimes a little more than 90 degrees.
One important thing to mention: when I open the lid until 60 degree there's no stage light issue, the display is clean, with no shadows. The issue starts at 60 degree with the shadows appearing and screen brightness being lowered until it goes black.
It works perfectly with an external monitor. So it must be something with a damaged display cable, right? Can it get worse than it already is, like damaging the logic board or something?
I can't afford an expensive repair (new display) so if I'm safe keeping the lid closed, I'm planning to use it as a desktop.
Esta pergunta é pertinente?
Me too. I opened a thread at Apple
apple closed the tread :(
I’ve started a petition on change.org (https://www.change.org/p/apple-fix-all-n...).
Please sign in, together we can make Apple run an extended warranty program.
Same problem here. I called Apple, they don’t want to cover the costs. I have an model MacBook Pro touchbar 2016 with a lot of extras. Very disappointed…
I have the same thing with my 2016 MacBook pro, you can check out my post earlier. You will need to push hard and upwards as many have recommended. Unless every case was voiced to upper, Apple will not take action. Even if Apple puts this display problem into a quality program in the next few years, you will still be refunded for all the repair expenses later. Every case counts.
