Flex Cable (Screen) & Backlight Repairs
Have you heard of the famous Apple flex cable issue, dubbed ‘Flexgate’. It is a known fault on Apple MacBooks since 2016 where the cable that connects the screen and logic board was made too short. As a result every time you open and close the screen the cable is being stretched, eventually leading it to break or fray.
Up until now, the only way to repair was to replace the whole display assembly. Our in-house Apple certified technician has now discovered a way to replace the flex cable with a more suitable replacement so a screen assembly replacement isn’t necessary. Learn more
