Facing the frustrating 'Flexgate' issue on your MacBook Pro? Is your screen going dark or acting up when you open your laptop at certain angles? You're not alone. Many MacBook users, especially those with 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pro models (A1706/A1707/A1708), have encountered this problem. Surprisingly, even the 2018 and 2019 13" and 15" models have started experiencing it.
This problem emerged a few years ago when switched from traditional wired connections to more flexible cables for the display panel, routing them around the laptop's internal hinge bracket.
The issue stems from the flex cable responsible for the display backlight, initially being too short. Consequently, each time you open or close your MacBook, it experiences undue stress, leading to cable damage. This can result in a completely dark screen or an image only visible within a limited angle, typically between 35 to 60 degrees.
If your MacBook powers on, but the screen remains black without any physical damage or drops causing the problem, you might be dealing with the infamous Flexgate problem. You should still see the green CAPS LOCK indicator when you hit the power button, and the trackpad should respond with a reassuring click. Shining a bright light at a specific angle onto the screen might reveal a faint, though somewhat dim, display.
However, if your screen doesn't stay black when you open it or you notice horizontal/vertical lines, pink/purple bars, or other image defects, this service might not be suitable.
