Screen backlight shuts off intermittently
I know there are tons of questions/answers on this forum relating to this topic, but after reading through most of them, the symptoms don't fully line up with mine. My apologies if this is covered elsewhere, I'm hoping someone can lead me in the right position.
Yesterday, my screen shut off out of nowhere. Keyboard was still lit. The computer was still running because I was listening to music and that didn't stop. When I held a flashlight to the back of the monitor/apple, I can see my whole desktop. I can even navigate around and restart the computer if I have enough patience.
On occasion, closing the laptop and reopening it, will bring the screen back up.
Wiggling the screen back and forth, does nothing. It's not flickering like there's a short in the cable.
Restarting the computer doesn't seem to bring the screen back to life.
I just took the bottom cover of the laptop off. I pressed on most of the connectors/shoes to make sure that everything was seated properly. Once I put the case back together and opened the lid, the screen worked for about 30 minutes before going out again.
If anyone can lead me to a post that answers or helps diagnose this problem, I would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Is this a good question?
