Title:

MacBook Pro internal screen doesn't work but an external monitor works

Text:

Hey all,
 
My Macbook Pro (Mid 2012) has a problem. The screen is black when I boot it up, but when I plug it in to my external monitor it works.
 
Things I tried:
 
* Reconnecting LVDS cable
* PRAM reset
* SMC reset
* Disconnecting the battery for a few minutes and reconnecting it again.
* Removed and re-inserted RAM sticks.
I don't know what I can do at the moment. Are there more things I can try or should I get a screen replacement?
