Weird display issue after a fall

I have a MacBook which had a fall but the display isn’t broken just get a weird glitch every now and then, I was wondering if reseating the display cable could help or if the display is damaged beyond any repair

when I flex the display a little it goes away and works just fine for a while even closing and opening the display.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

To make sure connect your system to an external display if the externals image is good when your internal is messing up then you have a problem with the internal display.

Not good ;-{

You’ll need to find someone with very good micro-soldering skills to see if they can save your display.

What you are seeing is the LCD displays ribbon cables to the T-CON board have become disconnected. Hopefully its just the solder joint on the T-CON board then its the T-CON board which is part of the display assembly.

Otherwise its time for a new display time:

I see, apple quoted me an estimate of $600, If I were to mail this laptop to Rossman repair group do you think it would be less expensive, or how much would a repair like that cost approximately ?


@Manuel Alejandro Roman Leal - You'll need to talk directly with them. There still a good possibility you may still end up needing a new display if they can't fix it.
