Blank screen, external monitor works

Just yesterday, the screen suddenly went blank. Connected to external monitor, evrything seems normal. Today morning, when I put it on, screen was magically working again. Then after 2-3 minutes it went blank again. The logic board on this macbook was replaced two weeks ago (due to some liquid spill). Is it possible that some cable is loose inside? Even though, It's less than a year old, I can't take it apple because the liquid spill voided the warranty. Please suggest what to do. Thanks...

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Switched the macbook ON yesterday after a long time, and magically the screen works now. No blank screen. Don't know what was wrong before.

I have the same problem after replacing a damaged retina display on my 13" MacBook Pro. I have followed other troubleshooting recommendations and gotten nowhere. My external monitor is the only way I can use my computer.

Yesterday, the screen went blank again. It seems like there may be a loose connection somewhere, but I can't find where. May have to take it to the apple store again and pay $$$.

I took it to a local mac repair guy, and he said the video cable was bad. He replaced it, and it's working again. Thank god, it was not an expensive repair.

Hey, I've a question. Does A1502 MBP work without its own display ? I would like to remove my non-properly working screen completely and use the MBP with an external monitor.

I'm asking this question under this thread because I think blank screen here should mean no screen and therefore it should work with an external monitor after I remove the OEM screen. Not sure though

Ive seem a macbook air were the entire display assembly was ripped off of the computer, but the rest of the computer worked perfectly fine with an external monitor or projector. So yes it should still work.
