Black screen but can see icons with torch
Hi. I seem to be spending hours trying to search for the answer to this, but I'm going around in circles. I hope you can help.
I have an a1419 27 inch late 2012 (I think)
The screen is black, but I can see the icons with a torch. I can link my thunderbolt or external screen to get an image, this is fine. I tried replacement panel, no good. Now I am trying a new display cable, but the costs of trial and error are mounting.
What could be wrong? I am grounded when working on it. If it's the backlight what do I do on this model, as I can see they are all "slightly" different inside. I've read about fuses, and controllers, but not much info about the a1419 out there I'm stuck....
Thanks for helping
Is this a good question?
