An interesting case of a Macbook Black Screen Repair we had in our post today in our Mac Repair workshop in Adelaide.
This gorgeous 13″ 2017 Macbook Air came from north SA. The customer found us on the web and called for an inquiry. We knew what to expect from the fault described and able to quote adequately.
We didn’t waste time and jump straight to it. First, we need to confirm the issue by turning it on. Great about these models is that clear Apple logo allows us to quickly diagnose missing backlight on Macbooks by shining a torch through it.
Upon opening, it was clear there was slight liquid damage on the LCD screen connector causing it to short the power lines of the screen. They carry 50V boosted voltage, causing significant damage when shorted.
Macbook Air Backlight Repair Process
First, we wanted to check the LCD connector for damage. As the short seems to be originated around high voltage lines of the screen.
Replacement of these screens tops 600$ new, and if there is a damage on the connector, it may increase drastically repair quote we gave to the customer.
If we look closely to the left corner of the screen LCD connector we can see how it is slightly bruised up, due to the short within the connector.
When measured, the LCD connector had no short on it – what a relief. We have also noticed the backlight fuse also was shorted. So we went and replaced it.
When removed, we could still measure a short on the LCD connector side, meaning something is shorting within the LCD connector.

With hundreds of components in stock, we can quickly locate and replace faulty chips, resistors, and capacitors in Macbooks.
We had to remove the shorted LCD connector and replace it with new one.
Once the connector replaced, we were ready to assemble and test. As there were no other liquid signs on the board itself, we concentrated our repair around the LCD connector area and burned backlight fuse.
