Good evening,


My macbook pro’s screen has turned black. The panel is not damaged and the keyboard backlight is working as usual. I checked online and apparently there is an issue on the flex cable for MacBook Pro 2016 model. I tried checking repair shops online in Malaysia, there are charging more than RM 2000 by replacing the entire panel. I want to only replace the cable at cheap cost.

I am around KL area. Is there any apple repair Centre offering this service? I would be grateful if you could help me with this.


Thank you and have a great day

If I remember correctly the ribbon is soldered on the display so if flexgate happens need to replace whole display.

There are now official recall: https://www.apple.com/support/13-inch-macbo...klight-service/

Send back to Apple if your unit affected. They will replace the panel FOC.
