Display flickering while restarting.

I own a MacBook Air m2 I had display flickering issue when I restart the Mac for few seconds so I took it to Apple authorised service Store they say they is liquid damaged but I’m sure I have spilled any liquid on it 100 percent they say that the display connector pins are shorted due to liquid damage only 3 pins and corroded them (but I see no corrosion in the picture)so they are suggesting me to replace the entire screen for 600 dollars which is like half the price of the laptop I have attached the pic of the damage in the end of the mail I kindly request you to review the damage and suggest me some solution solution

State of the MacBook:perfectly fine but only flickers while I restart

I would like some response as soon as possible since I will be visiting the Apple Store within 38 hours I kindly request you to do the needful

Since it’s an 10 core you model I suspect that it should be power over load as it take more power than the regular version but the circular does the high lighted green circle in the image indicate power over overload or overheat or liquid damage?

To be honest I don’t liquid damage here. I do see signs of heat on the cover plate which could be caused during the manufacturing process. The connector contacts you’ve noted look fine there is no visible staining from liquid spillage. The image is not clear enough to understand what they are thinking.

What is your environment? High temps and/or humidity? Do you leave the system in your car or near a south facing window that the sun could bake it?

Air conditioned environment but used for heavy tasks which made it reach temp of 101 degrees.


@ramanaraj - You maybe pushing this system too hard! A short window of a heavy task is workable but running a mid to long duration maybe to much for this class of system.

You also point out running in an A/C environment. Often when I hear that condensation can be a risk. That is when your cooler system from the A/C room exits into a hotter humid room or even exiting outside. Preventing the more humid air access to your system is something to pay attention too.

I would install a good thermal monitoring app like TG Pro to monitor the temps and crank up the fan speed to prevent cooking of your system, I would also make sure the fan and the heatsink fin area is dust free.

Maybe you need to get a MacBook Pro system which has a better cooling system and has deeper RAM and storage which from the sounds of it you could use. Code, photo and video all push systems harder and even some game play can be hard on a system.
