Денис - В отличие от проблем с кабелем подсветки, FlexGate - это одна из линий видеоданных.

Проблема в том, что у Apple нет расширенной программы гарантии на этот дефект.

Но! Допустим, у вас возникли и эта ошибка, и ошибка подсветки. Как вы думаете, вы могли бы поспорить, чтобы заменить дисплей, который фактически устранит обе проблемы? Вы получаете направление здесь?

Внимательно ознакомьтесь с iFixit vid The Design Flaw Behind MacBook Pro’s “Stage light” Effect! #Flexgate внимание, где ошибка и как она устала. ЕСЛИ что там, где дело здесь, вы могли бы спорить ваше дело.

Denis - Unlike the backlight flex cable issues FlexGate yours is the one of the video data lines.

The problem is Apple doesn’t have an extended warranty program for that defect.

But! Lets say you had both this and the backlight failure what do you think you could argue to get the display replaced which would in fact get both issues fixed? Are you getting the direction here??

Carefully review the iFixit vid The Design Flaw Behind MacBook Pro’s “Stage light” Effect! #Flexgate note where the failure is and how is became fatigued. IF that where the case here you could argue your case.

Dan, hello!

I tried to force the service center to accept the laptop for repair according to the flexgate program, but they nevertheless refused because this defect is not included in the flexgate program. Nevertheless, they are ready to take it in for repair when the lighting fails, which will eliminate both causes at once.

Re-read my answer! And look what you wrote "Nevertheless, they are ready to take it in for repair when the lighting fails, which will eliminate both causes at once." Are you seeing it? What is needed here.

Sadly, the repair program is just for the backlight cable not the video cables. But if the backlight issue showed up then he could claim that as the defect ;-}

Then Apple would be forced to give him a new display under this repair program!
