Macbook Backlight Repair is needed when we have a Macbook which turns on but the screen stays black.
We can quickly and easily diagnose this by ourselves by shining a torch on the screen. For instance, some Macbooks models built before 2017 have a glass apple logo. Shining a torch through the back shows the problem immediately. This way, we can see if the whole screen is not functioning or only the backlight is missing.
As seen in the picture, when we shine a torchlight with these models, we can actually diagnose if there is indeed a backlight issue.
Some of the symptoms which may indicate the need for Macbook Backlight Repair:

What causes backlight problems on Macbooks?
The main cause of this damage would be a water spillage on the LCD connector unless there were an intervention from the user. For example, trying to disconnect the screen and have shorted it accidentally.
Additionally, this connector is pretty close to the charging port on these models, and a little water spillover over the Macbook is enough to damage it. This can cause a Macbook Backlight Problem and would require a Macbook Backlight Repair.
Sometimes we are lucky and can get away with shorted backlight fuse, although it is very rare.
However, most of the cases we have is a shorted Macbook backlight chip causing voltage not to be boosted enough to supply a backlight. In a case like this, we need to replace the Backlight chip.
On some occasions, it also can be caused by the screen connector or screen itself (especially with new generation USB-C type Macbooks).
Most of the time, we will have to replace the screen, although we can sometimes repair the connector, as in the example below.
