I will be closed and only accepting mail-in screen repairs and data recovery projects starting April 8th. If you would like to ship your hard drive in for data recovery or your Mac in for screen repair, please start the process on my mail-in repair site: MacScreenRepair.com

What does a broken LCD look like?

A broken LCD looks like this:
Screen not visible due to cracked LCD panel


Unless it looks like this:
Black splotches on MacBook Air screen

Or vertical lines like this:

MacBook Pro with vertical lines on left side


Sometimes even this:

Black splotches at top of screen due to crack


That one kind of looks like gathering storm clouds against the El Capitan background.

And this one looks like a bullet hole on the MacBook screen. Sometimes that’s what a cracked LCD looks like too.
Point of impact on Retina MacBook Pro screen


And, what does a repaired MacBook LCD look like?

MacBook Pro with new display


Exactly like that.
