    We Can Repair Your MacBook Backlight

    The MacBook backlight occurs when the flex cables bend due to overstretching. This will result in the display wearing down. Some of the lights in the LED backlight strip will fail, resulting in uneven light distribution on the display.

    Backlight issues are often solved through professional soldering. This is not offered in many service centers due to the advanced skills required.

    Some of the common sign that shows your Mac has backlight issues are:

    • The screen light at the bottom is uneven.
    • The screen has large horizontal or vertical bars.
    • The screen is black.

    Since some of its signs like a dark screen can indicate a faulty logic board, connector cable, or a faulty keyboard. Turn your laptop on in a dark room, move the cursor to the corner of your screen and shine the spotlight on the screen. If you see the cursor then the Mac has a backlight problem.

    The methods used to solve backlight issues are:

    • Rejoining flex cable through soldering: this is done by removing cable insulation, and then soldering the broken wire. The method is simple but doesn't offer a lasting solution as the cable will still be short and likely to break when stretched.
    • Cut off the flex cable and join the display to the circuit board with wire. It is an improvement of the first method but still not effective or professional.
    • Cutting old flex and soldering a new cable on it. This is the best option and the one we use. The flex length is increased and overstretch issue is solved. also, the cable quality is maintained hence excellent power transmission and durability.
    • Disassembling the LCD panel and solder flex cable directly on the LED backlight strip. This is a labor-intensive method that's prone to damage and also expensive.

      I was recommended this service by another friend. The reviews about them were mixed, so I decided to give it a try. I was very pleased with their service and work. They fixed my phone and made sure everything was up to date. They also gave me a good discount on the anti-shock film. Thank you for your work!


      What is a flexgate in a MacBook?

      This is a term used to explain display design problems that were prevalent on some MacBook models (2016/17). The problem was due to flex cables that were prone to breaking because they were overstretched. Some of its signs were consistent /occasional bright areas at the bottom of the screen or large vertical lines on the screen.

      How do I know if my MacBook backlight is broken?

      This can be determined through the following ways.

      • Position the flashlight at an angle to the screen, if you see a blurred image then your blacklight might be damaged.
      • Check your monitor using an external monitor or TV set. If the display it's ok then your backlight might be damaged.
      • Your display has uneven light at the bottom of the screen or big vertical lines.
