My MBP Mid 2015 Backlight died due to water damage
My Macbook Pro 15” Mid 2015 (2.2 ghz) display backlight died due to water damage. I have seen various tutorials and found that either very specific parts need to be replaced or the entire logic board.
If I have to shell out extra $’s then I have seen logic board options for up-to 2.8ghz with dual graphic cards. Can I purchase and use one of those instead?
PS: I can confirm that it is only the backlight as I can use a flash light on the Apple logo at the back of the screen and see some of the screen’s content. I am currently using my machine with my iMac on Target Display mode.
Update: Spent a couple of hours with my technician and it appears the problem lies with the display adapter/jack. The IC, fuse and capacitors are all returning proper voltage but the adapter is not. I have attached the pictures as well.
Can anyone help me find the exact part please? Thanks in advance!
Is this a good question?
