I have a MacBook Pro 13" Mid 2012 which has developed an issue with no backlight. It is fully functional as in if I shine a torch on the screen then I see the screen as it should be and can move the mouse, shut down the machine etc.

I'm no longer covered by applecare and so obviously it is very expensive to replace the logic board. I have located a fuse on the board which is open circuit when measured so I need to replace it. I though that the fuse was a 2a 0402 32v like the one found here but after ordering and receiving it it is far too small. Does anyone know the correct size that I should order?

The thing with fuses is that you really need to find out why it blew in the first place. Something caused it to open. Hopefully, you can determine what.
