What causes the MacBook screen not working?

Apple MacBook screens are a high-quality and very reliable product. Most of the times, they won't go wrong with no reason unless they have been suffered from physical impacts or exposed to liquid.  A physical-damaged MacBook screen such as a cracked screen can be easily spotted. You can see the image as well as the cracks. In this situation, you definitely need a MacBook screen replacement. 

Other types of display issues such as a black screen or dim images are harder to diagnose, as the screen itself and the video chip on the logic board would equally contribute to the symptoms. If your MacBook Pro screen has the following symptoms, you need professional advice before replacing the screen.

      1. Intermittent flickering screen 

      2. Grey or Black screen

      3. Vertical lines or Horizontal lines

      4. Screen no backlight

Apple original MacBook screen vs third-party screen

When you need to replace the MacBook screen, you may need to make a decision between using an Apple original screen or a cheaper third-party screen. We compare an Apple original screen with a third-party screen side by side shown in the following photo to help you better understand the differences.

Apple original MacBook screen vs third-party screen

Both MacBooks use the same background picture and set the brightness to maximum. The screen on the right-hand side is an Apple original screen, the one on the left-hand side is a third-party screen purchased online. You can tell the differences straightforward.

A MacBook screen consists of two major components, an LCD panel and a strip of LED lights called backlights. The LCD panel creates the image. The LEDs light up the image from behind the LCD panel. The LCD and LED are different concepts. There are major differences between an original Apple screen and a third-party screen as outlined here:

  1. 1. Backlight purity. Apple uses high-quality LEDs as backlight sources. The backlight is pure white. On the other hand, the backlight of the third-party screen is bluish. The bluish backlight degrades the vivid picture dramatically.
  2. 2. Backlight brightness.  High-quality LEDs provide brighter lights and remain near the same brightness over time, even after a few years. Low-quality LEDs not only produce bluish light but also have brightness degradation problem. The brightness of some third-party screens may only maintain half of the original brightness after a year of use.
  3. 3. Photo sharpness.  The Apple original LCD panel produces a much sharper image as you can see on the right-hand side.
