    My macbook Pro decided to start flickering ,blacking out, and have lines running through the screen. When I feel the screen right where it says MacBook at the bottom it is extremely HOT.
    I thought I read somewhere they don't have Inverters on the LED screens?
    What can I do to fix this myself? Is it a whole new screen or maybe some cheap part I need?
    Thing is only 1 1/2 years old shouldn't be blowing on my equipment I baby.

    No Applecare...
    I never needed to use warranties before on anything I owned and think I shouldn't have to buy Applecare if the products are suppose to be worth the extra cost.
    Just stating facts. It is sad when a $400.00 laptop last forever and my 1200.00 MBP dies in a year and a 1/2? Doesn't make since and happens to allot of people.

    Anything electronic can break. Apple (and many other electronics company for that matter) makes millions upon millions of the same product. Of course there are going to be some lemons in the bunch. Just because they have a superior product doesn't mean they are not prone to having something break.

    Is there any guides to fixing this issue?
    I read there is no Inverters on the LED models?
    Would like to get my MBP back to the way I like it and can do the job myself if I can find out what part I need.
