Why is my screen flickering and backlight completely shutting off?
This happens periodically, I'm sure it has something to do with the display cables.
Does anyone have an idea of how long or where I could find the cables to replace and which ones will actually fix this?
I've tried doing a display update, which fixed it for about a day.
It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does it is very annoying.
If it's flickering, it is quite possible the inverter cable has just come lose and just needs to be reseated. When the backlight goes off, try tapping your top case near the top left and also the clutch cover around the left side. If this resolves it, then the cable may just need to be reseated.
