Touch Bar seems to be disconnected from system (Help wanted)

So yesterday I accidentally dropped my mac and after that, the touch bar was not responsive at all, and I check the accessibility settings to only not find any touch bar zoom settings at all. From what I know, it seems like the touch bar was completely disconnected from the system, and does not function anymore. Is there any possible way to fix this problem?

(Another thing that keeps happening is that the system crashes after trying to wake up from sleep. I think the drop has also caused some other possible problems)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I honestly have the exact same problem ,did you manage to figure out what was the fix?


@davviiiid_ I think repair could be the only way to go. If you are experiencing crashes after wake up, it could be the same problem as I had. I no longer have this problem anymore.


ah thank you , did you just replace the touchbbar or the whole top case?


@davviiiid_ just the touch bar. with other broken parts too.

See if this fixes it Frozen Mac Touch Bar? Here’s how to fix it. If not, then the Touch Bar or its controller is damaged and will likely need replacing. Best to go to an Apple Store to get it fixed.

Related question.

Can I just disconnect damaged touch bar without replacing it? It causes restarts for me too after closing lid or unplugging from external monitors.

I don't use it and set it already to not show anything (as it was blinking because of damage) but restart problem i stayed.
