LCD Display backlight issue, Can be seen by dropping a torch
My 13” MacBook Pro 2017 (with Touch Bar) got display outage suddenly. The backlight wasn't lighting up (the desktop & its icons could faintly be seen with a torchlight). Connecting to an external display did work.
I tried SMC & NVRAM Reset, neither helped! I contacted Apple Support, after some talks they recommended to reinstall macOS. Didn't work either!
My warranty just ran out 1-2months ago.
In this condition whats your recommendation? FYI: my system didn't get dropped or get wet as far as I am concerned.
I then contacted iService (in Bangladesh) Apples’ authorized reseller, but not very good at service. We don't have any Apple Store/genius bar in our country. After some diagnosis, they found out it’s the display & will take 48kBDT(570$+) to replace + Their diagnosis charge.
But the problem is, I can't trust their diagnosis (There are numerous online resources suggests it can be the logic board, or the display or the ribbon cable).
If after spending ~50k+ (600USD) the iService guys tell me that it was logic board that will be a great frustration!
Is this a good question?
