    Hi guys,

    The backlight of my Macbook Pro Retina 13' (late 2013) started acting weird the last couple of days. If I start the macbook up it works normally, then all of a sudden half of the backlighting randomly stops working. I then have to restart it to wake it up again. It doesn't happen after a certain amount of time but completely at random. Sometimes it works to put the macbook in sleepmode and then wake it up, but other times I have to do a complete restart.

    Here's a picture of what happens:

    As you can see the underside of the screen shows dark spots

    Looks like there's some sort of short going on or they're simply failing.

    Definitely take it in because this isn't a problem that's going to get better over time.
