LCD flickering, not due to motherboard or VGA

Hi, about a month ago i purchased a MacBook Pro 13" Retina Early 2015, but suddenly the display gone crazy and it flickers so bad that i can't do anything. When i turn my laptop on, everything is fine, but after I login to the system, the screen starts flickering.

I've already changed the VGA and the problem is not due to VGA.

The interesting fact is that when I connect it to an external display through HDMI cable, both macbook and external display seem to be normal, with no flickers at all, but when i disconnect the cable, the problem comes back.

Any idea that what could be the problem?

This machine may still be under warranty. I wouldn't mention the repair you made.

UPDATE 2/12/16

I called Apple on this one this morning..........

Try this:

(008) 001-1065




I do have an Apple Case number on this and it's early here so if this fails, get back to me and I'll see if I can't bump it up to a senior advisor with Apple.

This next is a couple of years old but may be of interest.

Hi Shahin

You can try replacing the actual LCD with another one and see if the problem persist.

It may be just LCD problem.

Hope this help

Thx mimi, is it possible to replace just the cable that connects motherboard to display?


I am not sure but I think the LCD comes together with all the cables.
