Backlight issues

Hi all,
I've had my MacBook since August 2006, and I know there's been screen flickering issues where the brightness of the screen goes up and down w/o F1 or F2 being touched. That happened to me every once and awhile and I've been dealing b/c I have no Apple Care.
Problem is that my backlight has started cutting out completely for no reason. I can see the outline of the display, but the light isn't on so it's impossible for me to do anything. I have to move the screen up and down, press on the right corner of the screen way too hard, or play with the F1 and F2 buttons for a few minutes and, usually, the light will pop back on. A few times it hasn't though and I've had to do a restart. I've noticed since this problem started a few weeks ago that the 'lighter flickering' has stopped completely.
I want to call Apple about it, but I don't know if they'd help me out or not since I have no Apple Care. I'm also an English major in college right now during finals week, so I'm having to backup all my manuscript revisions onto a jump drive every 5 min just in case my screen gives out for good.
Anyone else have experience w/ this problem? Should I call the help center? They've always been really good to me before, but this is a problem I can't recreate on command (extremely random) and I assume they could tell me I'd damaged it myself somehow (I haven't.)
Thanks for any help,
Kristen

It's unfortunate you don't have Apple Care because your MB is out of warranty now. Even though you didn't cause the failure, Apple is not obligated to replace your inverter board under terms of the warranty. They might since, as you say, they have been really good to you in the past, but no guarantees.
By the way, you won't completely lose data over this. Even if the screen never lights up again, the data is fine and can be retreived either by attaching an external display or by putting the Mac in Firewire target mode and getting the data off onto another Mac. Good luck.

  • Ipod Touch 2g Backlight Issue

    Hello all. I have a Ipod Touch 2g with a backlight issue. The screen is readable and all functions except the backlight work fine, but no backlight. No water damage or recent drops. I did a restore and the backlight started working again, but after my next sync and reboot the backlight stopped working again. To me this does not seem like a hardware problem. Are there any known issues with the newest version of the OS that might have caused this? Any ideas on a fix?

    Interestingly, I just tried to update my applications through the App store on my ipod. The connection failed and suddenly the backlight came back on. Nothing new happened. I didn't move it, tap it, or anything else. This is very odd.

  • Very strange backlight issue

    I have a 600mhz (16 VRAM) iBook that I'm trying to fix for a friend. It has a strange backlight issue. Everytime the ibook is started, it chimes, and shows the screen (bright and perfect), but as soon as 9.2 starts to load, the backlight goes out. It is not intermittent, it happens at the exact same time every time I start it up (right when the progress bar starts to move). I reset the PRAM, which caused the computer to now look for a startup device, so all the extra time it takes search, the backlight is fine. Here's what I've tried.
    In firewire mode, the backlight never comes on
    With a hardware test disc, the backlight never comes on
    Reset the PRAM (several times)
    Reset the PMU (several times)
    Any ideas out there?

    As an update, I tried a Mac OS 10.4 startup disc which seemed to work, and the backlight came on with no problems. The machine did freeze on the welcome screen right after I selected english as the language of choice. So I tried a 10.3 disc which yeilds a kernal panic of "Unable to find driver for this platform: "PowerBook 4,3". After this, I tried a 9.2.2 disc which boots (takes 20 mins to boot) and when I try to load the installer I receive a "this program can not run on this machine", and it closes. This really seems like a strange problem. Any ideas?

  • Possible iBook G4 Backlight issue??

    Hello All - Hope everyone had a great Holiday.
    Here is my issue, I hope someone can give me some advice.
    I am working with an iBook G4 1.07Ghz Model Number - UV4280JMR73 (if that helps?)
    The computer really works like a champ most of the time. After running the computer for a short period of time (5-10mins) if you move the screen to re adjust the angle or just move the computer and the screen jiggles the screen goes black. If you look close in the right light you can still see the desktop and everything works fine, which I am assuming is a backlight issue. However, if you close the lid and let the comp go to sleep for 30secs - 1 min and than open it back up it boots right back up and the screen comes on just as bright as it should be and again if you jiggle the screen it goes dark again.
    At first I was thinking that the CCFLs were bad but after researching a bit it seems that those guys either go out and never come back on, or work fine. I have thought about a loose connection but if that was the case you would assume that if you kept jiggling the screen than it would come back on, right??? Also it wouldnt make since because it all works like normal once you close the lid for a min or so.
    Any thoughts???? I am pretty technically inclined and am not afraid to tear this bad boy apart. I work on BMWs for a living...
    Let me know what your thoughts are and any possible fixs and also if you know of a good place to buy parts if I need them and also if there is a walk through on the web that you know of.
    Thanks so much to all of you that read and I wish the best to you in the new year.
    Thanks, Jack.

    jjp,
    Well like S.U. says, it sounds like the inverter cable. Typically this breaks near the hinge point. I've repaired two like that. I found the open by continuity testing from the inverter board to the plug on the logic board. Once I found the open cable I could make it come back by pushing it together at the break point. I then opened it up, re soldered it and used shrink tubing to re insulate the break point. I then reinstalled the coil flex or silver sleeve and put it back together.
    The danger in having an open there is that it can short out and kill the inverter driver (for want of a better word). If you're lucky it will just take out the fuse in that area. I repaired one like that and had no idea what that fuse was (read open) but compared it to another one that wasn't burnt and bridged it with a .125 (I think) fuse filament.
    BTW if you need good take apart info email me.

  • Tecra A2 backlight issue - image is very faint

    Hi
    I have a Tecra A2 with a backlight problem.
    The LCD is displaying correctly, but without any backlight the image is very faint.
    When the laptop is booted the display lights up perfectly for about 3 seconds before turning off. The laptop successsfully boots and can be used with an external monitor. If I now close the lid the laptop backlight lights up again for a few seconds before going off again. I have tried a new backlight inverter which had no effect. The lid closed sensor is the magnetic type (presumably a reed relay) and measures 100Kohms when open? and 0 ohms when closed.
    Could this 100K be the problem?
    Has anyone experienced any of these symptons or does anyone have any backlight inverter data, i'm wondering if I have a second faulty inverter.
    Could this be a faulty FL backlight issue?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You are right Philip.
    For me it looks like the faulty FL-inverter too
    You said that the display on the external monitor looks fine. So we can eliminate a GPU fault.
    I think your should contact the ASP in your country. The technician should check the faulty part (probably FL inverter) and should replace it with a new, compatible one.
    >i'm wondering if I have a second faulty inverter
    I see you have already replaced the one FL inverter and the issue still appears hmm to be honest I believe you have used a wrong one but who knows nothing is impossible.
    So ask the ASP technician for the further handling
    Best regards and good luck

  • My MacBook Pro 2011 model has a backlight issue- pls someone help

    I have a early 2011 MacBook pro that has a backlight issue, im able to connect it to an external monitor just fine.
    Brought it to a repair shop and they swapped the screen including the lvd cable but the problem still exist.
    Have already spend a lot of money to no avail. What could be the issue? :(
    Apple said it only needs a new screen which doesn't seem to be true.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1713
    It is under warranty  https://selfsolve.apple.com/agreementWarrantyDynamic.do
    If it is more than one computer and both chargers are not working I suspect you need to replace.
    If it was just one Mac I might suggest  reset SMC http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3964

  • Acer D255E backlight issues during boot

    Having an issue with the backlight during the boot process of my netbook. Screen will go blank for 10-15 seconds before returning. This wouldn't be an issue, but it's sitting on the login screen for a good 5-10 seconds so I'd rather fix it.
    This is not a KMS issue, it's the backlight. I can append "nomodeset" to the kernel line and it will still occur. If I shine a flashlight at the screen, I can still see the boot text scrolling.
    Checking dmesg, the most interesting line is:
    [ 6.387788] acer_wmi: Brightness must be controlled by acpi video driver
    I've tried blacklisting that module with no noticeable change. I've also tried several different acpi options such as "acpi_backlight=video", "acpi_backlight=vendor", and the same with "acpi_display_output". "acpi=ht" doesn't work, however with "acpi=off" this no longer occurs (not a solution though).

    Really puzzled by this one. I've tried playing around with a ton of different acpi options. Only acpi=off prevents this from happening. Also tried upgrading my BIOS to the latest version. Tried several different distros and they all had the same issue, so it's not specific to Arch.
    I've noticed the backlight stays off for exactly 10 seconds as if there is a 10 second timeout. If I could figure out where that is, might be possible to just lower the timeout.

  • Has ANYONE resolved the keyboard backlight issue with the 1.67 15" PB?

    Here is the issue. I got a used PB G4 1.67 G4 off of Craigslist on Thursday night. When I picked it up the owner had done a re-install of the OS and it booted to the intro movie. While standing in the dark parking lot the backlight on the keyboard WAS working. I shut the machine off and got into the car to fill out the registration information and I noticed the backlight was NOT on. I pressed the buttons and nothing. I checked the keyboard and mouse system preference and the ambient lighting on/off was NOT there!
    Does anyone have a solution to this problem or should I just forget about this feature?
    Thank you all for your help.
    Blake

    I thank you for the response. In your case was the control for the lighting missing from the keyboard system prefs? That is what kills me, it worked one minute and not the next and I can't even see the controls for it.
    Thanks again,
    blake

  • IPad mini backlight issues after digitizer replacement

    I recently replaced the digitizer on my 1st gen iPad mini, and after reassembly, I'm havering issues with the backlight. Please have a look at my photo and let me know what the issue may be.
    Thanks a lot,
    Dave

    I guess I should have mentioned before that this is my second time replacing it. The first time there was a faulty digitizer and the home button wouldn't work. But the touch screen DID work. Now its flipped, my second time around fixing it the home button works fine and the touchscreen is unresponsive. I thought it might have some damage from being dropped but the touch screen worked before. So I'm not sure if it's something I'm doing wrong or if its something i can fix. Thanks

  • Macbook backlight issue

    It seems like every other LED is dead on my macbook pro. This is the second macbook pro I have received from apple. The first one I bought lit on fire. The magsafe nearly burned my house down due to overheating, melting, and bursting into flame. After all the trouble of getting it fixed and still having issues, they sent me a new macbook pro.
    It seems odd that apples flagship computer is such a pile of garbage, and that the screen can't even stay light up. If i knew how to post pics on here I would, but until I learn they will sit on my cell phone. Last time I complained about my computer LIGHTING ON FIRE an apple tech called me before I had a chance to get ahold of them. I hope I get the quick reply I deserve and they RESOLVE this problem or I will NEVER in my life buy another mac product again. NOT for home, not for work, or anything else.
    Spending 3000$ on a computer seems strange when an ACER that costs 300$ can actually keep a backlight lit on its screens.
    Is anybody else having this problem? I searched it on google and it said it happens often

    stuff fails, sounds like you've been very unlucky, but apple sells millions of units, most are fine otherwise apple wouldn't still be in business
    we've got two powerbooks, two macbook pros, two macbooks and two imacs, only one hardware failure in 7 years - fixed under warranty - and all are still running well
    the best thing to do is call technical support and arrange for repair/replacement...

  • Keypad Backlighting Issue - BB Pearl 3G

    Just recently I bought BB Pearl 3G and after 2 days of using it I'd encountered not so nice thing.  I got surprised when for no reason the keypad backlight of my phone was not working.  I tried to look for the screen/keypad option but found nothing with regards to this issue.  I took out the battery of my phone and waited for 5 minutes to get it back to its working condition.  I just want to ask, why does it happened?  How to avoid it next time

    Sorry, we communicate here in the Forums, in this thread you've started, not via email.
    Do this, take your device in a dark or dimly lit room and cover the top right hand corner LED area with the palm of your hand.
    Do you see the keyboard backlight brighten?

  • [SOLVED]lenovo ideapad u350 backlight issue

    Hi, as the thread title says i have an issue with the backlight on my lenovo ideapad u350.
    /sys/class/backlight/  is empty so i cant use xbacklight.....
    I allready added acpi_osi=linux and acpi_backlight=vendor to my menu.lst, but still /sys/class/backlight is empty....
    but I can set the backlight with sudo setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=xx , does that mean i just dont have the right module loaded?
    what do I need to do, to get the necesyary stuff in /sys/class/backlight so i can use xbacklight?
    havent found anything with google or in forum/wiki besides people using setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=xx , or people having
    backlight dimming working out of the box.

  • X220 IPS display backlight issue (with photos)

    Hello,
    I've purchased the Lenovo X220 laptop with the Premium HD IPS display and I do have a problem with it (see below).
    Laptop was purchased something like month ago and I've spotted this after I've started to work with it more heavily but after 14 days, so I was not able to return it to the seller (http://www.lenovoonline.cz).
    When you put backlight to maximum you see that the display is not evenly lighted and forming bright spots on the bottom of it. It's most noticable on the black background.
    I've sent notebook for repair (http://www.pcnet.cz) with this description (translated to english):
    "With maximum brightness set and the black display/background (eg. BOOT screen) on the bottom edge of the display there are visible white spots/maps. Small but visible and not even with different sizes. It's most visible on black background and while limiting external light (darker room, working in the night). Spots highlights even more when you try to pull the display towards you into steeper angle."
    The laptop has been in the repair for 2 weeks and the result was this description:
    "This kind of display is very sensitive to any pressure, and it will result in the brightening the place. It is specific for this model line and it's not the reason to warranty repair. We recommend to lower the brightness level in the darker room. Check of the display frame has been done and no problem has been found."
    Later they said they've replaced the panel too.
    However the issue still persists (see attached photos).
    Let me say few words about this:
    display is showing the spots while in rest I'm not touching it, if it's sensitive for pressure than it is indicating that there's some pressure on it while mounted in the frame
    I want to have backlight lighting the display evenly on the whole surface area, that's the correct function of a product anything else is NOT
    if they claim this is how it should be and it's actually a "feature" of the PREMIUM display then if I had known I would choose regular TN display and even save some money, needless to say that in that case the word PREMIUM sounds like a bad joke
    after lowering brightness level problem doesn't go away, still visible just gradually slightly less, depending on the brightness set
    if you are working in the night without external light this is VERY irritating
    So my question to you X220 community is, do you happen to have same issue?
    as they say it's "normal" with X220
    Thanks
    EDIT1:
    I've done a search now and it seems I'm not alone with this issue
    PS:
    I'm attaching two photos.
    First is the X220 (booted into GNU/Linux with X running and mouse as reference).
    Second is the very old Z60m (booted into Windows and running blank screensaver).
    Compare for yourself which one you would prefer.
    It was shooted in absolute dark (I'm used to work like that) with Canon EOS350D on tripod.
    There are some slight artifacts which you normally not percieve but anyway I think it clearly shows my point.

    Yes, at maximum brightness level the backlight bleeding is very visible but I use it at 5 or 6 level where it has excellent contrast ratio considering how crappy current notebook displays are in general. The uneven backlight is caused by fancy LED backlight which is still not able to deliver similar quality regarding uniformity as good old CCFL backlight (that's why professional LCD monitors still rely on W-CCFL backlight). But I agree that the top-left corner is way too much bad and might indicate that the panel is seated badly in the frame. On the other hand my old IPS panel in R51 also have backlight bleed at maximum brightness level.
    Major problem is that Lenovo is still not able to fix the stupid bug with brightness level always set to max in BIOS screen that the backlight bleeding is very visible and irritating everytime you boot your machine.
    IMHO, the X220 IPS panel is still much better than any ugly contrastless TN panel Lenovo puts into ThinkPads (except 15" FHD). I bet that you would hate the X220i TN panel more than this one
    There are also two different revisions of the IPS panel, the second one fixes problems with image retention. As for comparison with Z60m, X220 display lid is much more fragile so the panel is not protected well against pressures and flexes. In any case panel flex should affect the backlight bleeding temporarily only. If it persists it is subject to repair (replace, reseat etc.).
    Unfortunately I don't have any good low-light camera that takes useable pictures in dark environment so I can't post relevant images of the backlight bleeding.

  • Weird Backlight issue

    So I kinda lost all hope when I went in over my waders last summer and my iPod touch got soaked. But it randomly started working recently ... And then I dropped it and the backlight only works if I hold the home button. I'm assuming it's something I'd need to get repaired, but I thought I'd see if it wasn't a hardware issue. For now a clothes pin seems to do the trick, but it's kind of annoying ^^;;

    I would try restoring it to factory defaults via iTunes. If it works after that then it is a software problem and them I would restore from backup to see if the backup has a problem. If restoring it to factory defaults does not resolve the problem then, as you suspect, it is a hardware problem.
