Black screen with blue vertical lines on MacBook Pro
My Mac book prob suddenly went into a black screen with a few vertical lines on it yesterday as I was in a zoom meeting and I haven't been able to fix it. Help is much appreciated!!
First get some screen cleaner, spray a micro cloth and wipe down your screen and the rest of your system with the cloth (don’t spray the screen or system directly) As you’ll need to visit an Apple Store or Apple authorized service center to get your system repaired under warranty or if you got the AppleCare+ service contract. Hopefully its still covered!
This appears to be a bad T-CON board, hopefully you didn’t have a liquid spill or damaged the display assembly its self.
Here’s the breakdown:
Hey, so I had the same issue on a Macbook pro (M1) where every so often the screen would flicker, black out and show only those exact vertical lines and so I took it in for repair (in warranty, otherwise repair is ~£500-£1000). It seems to have been a hardware issue as when I mirrored the display on a second screen, it worked but only on that screen (I advise you test this too so that you can point the repair person in the right direction as it's not a common issue, it seems). So the team at Apple replaced the screen and left it running for a few hours - it's been a few days and so far, no more blacking out and lines.
Just to note, the issue I had would sometimes "fix itself" and not show for hours, which is why I left the issue for 2 months before the issue finally became more of a permanent thing. However, first time I sent it to Apple for repairs, they only checked it for a few minutes, couldn't replicate the issue, then sent it back untouched.
