I am confused. You say it is a A1425 but choose a A1502 as your model. The 1425 is a late 2012 to early 2013, whereas the A1502 is a Late 2013. which model do you really have:-)

I changed your chosen device to a A1425. If this is incorrect, post your computers serial number with your question so we can properly identify which computer you have.

Michael, the backlight driver on this model is reference designator U9701. Looks like another TI IC LP8545SQX-EXTJ. Check the image for the location. Hope this helps, good luck.

I can likely contact Texas Instruments for this part? Do I need to tell them the entire part number including the EXTJ?

It is unlikely that TI will sell you the part. They are the manufacturer and I am not even sure if they do retail sales. You would have to check places like Mouser.com, Digikey.com, or Farnell.com as well as many others. I'd suggest that you try and get a datasheet and see if the driver works as it should. It is not a good idea to just replace parts without further troubleshooting

Where's backlight fuse location?

the backlight driver never dies on this. on a1425 the fuse can die, on a1502 the fuse does not. check pin 1 of lcd connector to see what it looks like, check for short to ground. the "fuse" in a1502 retina models ***IS*** pin 1 of the LCD connector. and check, if there ***IS**** a short to ground on pin 1 of LCD connector, if it goes away when you unplug the LCD.
