    Recently my macbook screen started to flicker, on & off till I adjusted the screen up/down and it would be fine. Until yesterday it just went off and moving the screen didn't do anything. I can still see my desktop in the backround, any clues on how to fix this issue?

    Thanks

    Looks like the inverter is toast. You see your desktop background really dark don't you?

    I had the same problem on the same model, it was the inverter.
