Display is black (no picture), but backlight works
A few months ago, my mid 2010 15" macbook pro was in a bag which unfortunately fell off a table. I usually use the MBP with an external monitor, which works perfectly, so I never really noticed that something is wrong.
Last week I wanted to take the MBP with me, but right after turning it on I noticed that the screen stayed black. Waiting and wiggling didn't help either. The backlight works fine and I can even adjust the brightness. I just don't see a picture.
I've tried removing the bottom and checking the screen data cable connection (plugging out, plugging back in) with no result.
Any tips on what I could try? I, of course, would like to spend as little money as possible on buying extra parts, but there may be no way around that.
Thanks in advance, I'd really appreciate the help.
Is this a good question?
