That display is going to be very difficult to find and high dollar. The retain your warranty on the rest of the machine, I would certainly consider having Apple do this one (I really dislike giving that advice).

Is it possible to do this repair or on 2019-20 MacBook Pro models? Can the screen assembly be replaced without triggering the T2 chip to brick the unit?

Charles, I just don't know yet. Let's see if management has a clue @kristen

@mayer Checking with the tech writers to see if they have any insight on this!

So, from the info I've gathered, we haven't specifically tested this with the 2019-2020 model, but we don't have any evidence that there is actually a difference between this model and the 2017-2018 model.

@kristen - FYI the 2018 and newer models have TrueTone support. You need to be careful I encountered issues when I was shipped by mistake a 2016/2017 display and it just didn't work. Not sure if I got a bad display in any case I shipped it back and got a new one, the correct one 2018 that worked!

Did you ever see “stage-lights” on the bottom of the display before the failure?

If yes, recall. Get a refund. Reference: “FlexGate”.

BTW “broken” is not a good description. Try “cracked” or “no light on display” to narrow the problem down.

The Retina MacBook Airs don't have the backlight FlexGate issue. Only the 13" Fn & 13"/15" TB MacBook Pro's have this issue.

@danj right on! I misread the model. Wrong advice is worse than no advice. Thanks for catching this.
