    Hi guys

    I have been wondering if anyone else has experienced a similar thing...

    I can't lower my Macbook screen less than 90 degrees without losing the backlight to my screen, it doesn't go to sleep because under decent lighting I can still see the open applications running, I'm pretty sure it's getting worse on the amount I can keep it open by...

    Is it something stupid like a setting I've messed around with? Or something a bit worse?

    Muchos thanks

    Sounds about right to me. That sounds like the backlight connector is f'd

    It's nothing to worry about. That's perfectly normal on MacBooks :rolleyes:






    Really, take it to an Apple store!
