Flex Gate Backlight Repair Service

The No1 MacBook Black Screen Fix

What is Flex gate?:
Flexgate is the term used to describe a display problem with certain models of MacBook Pro caused by a faulty Flex cable. 
What is Flex cable?
Flex cable connects internal backlight diodes to the display controller board. It’s pulled tight every time you open and close the lid of the device. After a while, the backlight cable usually breaks. We use a longer cable to reduce stress and reduce the risk of re-damage. The symptoms include the display only working on a slight angle if raised too high the display goes black, or the MacBook is on and works from an external display, but the screen itself stays black.
