Waking up with no backlight, sudden/no liquid spill
The last time this MBP was on, the battery was low - so I closed the lid and put it in my bag (a laptop backpack). The bag did fall off a low bench - not an extreme fall (it had fallen harder before without causing damage).
The next time I opened the lid, nothing was visible (only a black screen). Using a projector as an external monitor works fine, and with a torchlight I can see something happening on the MBP's monitor, very dimly.
From these I conclude that it's my backlight that's the problem. How can I troubleshoot further? Which cables should I look for if I open my MBP to see if there are loose connections?
I have tried these - http://osxdaily.com/2014/11/22/fix-macbo... - not helping.
Thank you so much Reece! After posting my question last night, I shut it down after doing an NVRAM zap for a few times and an SMC reset to no avail.
This afternoon though, I turned it on with projector attached - and voilà, the monitor is on!
Does this sound like the cable was loose? Or do you think there's something more serious? Would you still recommend to open it up? What should I look out for?
Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.
Is this a good question?
