MacBook Pro logo problem :( Help

I have old MacBook Pro "15 Early 2008. It's hard to explain. Look at photos. After frequent transportation with him, it happened. But this thing went down very slowly. At first the black line was at the top of the logo. How to fix it?

That is actually the internal diffuser for the apple logo that is between the backlight and the plastic apple logo itself. It's a round plastic disk that is normally adhered to the metal of the screen.

You would have to remove the lcd panel to get to it and then the backlight box. I would strongly recommend against it, as just touching the pages of the diffuser can cause permanent damage that will show up on your screen image. There are many more things that can go wrong than there are things that can go right with that job.

@salmonjapan has a decent answer, not the ideal solution, but if it is an eye sore, I would recommend something similar.

Sorry for the bad luck! But if you do attempt, take some good pictures and upload a walk through for us!

Looks kind of like someone set a hot cup of tea on it when it was closed. What am I looking for on the open display?

I'm not sure @mayer - It doesn't look like it's a surface stain.

I'm thinking the diffuser sheet has a problem on the backside of the backlight panel. The only way to figure this out would be to pull the LCD panel. But is it worth it? I would just leave it alone.

between the display and the case is a white round thing. maybe it was glued before, and now it is loosened. it does not dirt on the surface. it's a real white circle that has shifted from its place
