A1398 Late 2013/Mid2014 MacBook Pro... No LCD Display

Hi all,

We had a cracked LCD on this model but still had 80-90% working display on the screen. We replaced the LCD, and screen was completely black. Assumed it was defective, so we ordered a replacement and installed.. and again no display.

We tested the HDMI display and got a perfect signal... computer is working great.

I can believe that we received two defective LCD's in a row, but I find this highly unlikely. Any other ideas?


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I too was presented with a broken screen so immediately went to swap it. Followed all the correct procedures, second screen has faint image but no backlight.

Reinstalled the cracked screen and it works fine(minus the crack) so it's not the backlight on the Mobo.

Is there any way to repair/check the second screen backlight?

This answer was originally to another question.

My father had the same problem with his Macbook Pro. I fixed it just by turning it on and letting him typ in his password. I believe after that it just fixed itself (it's been a while since it happened). Maybe try changing the brightness of the screen after logging in. I don't know if this will work for your clients Macbook but I hope it does.

Unfortunately this isn't doing it. We tried that. Thank you for the suggestion.

The real question here is will a 2013/2014 LCD work on a 2015 model


Did you find out?
