@zmentz your MBP a A1708/EMC 3164 or a A1706 / EMC 3071? We need to know this so we can identify to right components for you. Do you have your logic board out? If so post some good top and bottom pictures of it with your QUESTION. Adding images to an existing question

@zmentz it all depends on where it got damaged and what parts got shorted out. Size of the damage does not matter, location most certainly does. Since your old screen works etc. it is definitely your display that got shorted out.

@zmentz it’s on the top site. The fuse is a 3Amp 32Volt fuse in a 0603 package.

@oldturkey03 so i want to check the backlight fuse becasue i was mistaken and it is not working because if i shine a light into the back of the screen i get a display so is the fuse on the top or bottom of the board?
