2017 Macbook Pro Screen Replacement Flexgate

If you one of the lucky people who owns a 2017 Macbook pro you might have run into a screen issue they tend to develop. Where the screen works when you open in a little bit on an angle, but if you open it all the way it goes black and won’t display anything.

This issue is called “Flexgate”. Yes it has a name, because this screen failure happened to so many people, Apple were hit with now two class action lawsuits. Both of which were denied by the judge. Last class action lawsuit on flexgate was denied in May of 2022.

The reason your 2017 macbook pro screen has failed is because of the flex cable that connects the screen to the logic board. Hence “flexgate”. In 2018 on the next model of Macbook pro, Apple made that flex cable a little longer, thus in a way admitting their own mistake regarding the issue. However not really willing to do much about it.

Now of course they say its a 5 year old computer and you can’t expect it to work flawlessly for 5 years, things break. And maybe that is understandable. But in reality, they weaseled their way out of fixing them few years back too, when they were failing fresh. People had literally yell and scream at the Apple Store for them to get it replaced as part of warranty.

The affected models for this macbook pro screen failure in large were macbook pro 2017 a1708, macbook pro 2017 a1706 model, macbook pro 2017 a1707- 15 inch model. And it also happens to newer models as well. Because the real issue is not the length of the cable, but the flex cable itself. It is thin as paper and it gets twisted all the time when you open or close the lid of the laptop.

The only way to fix this A1708 macbook pro screen issue with the flex cable is to replace the screen. We offer a1708 screen replacement and A1706 screen replacement usually as same day service. We usually have screens in stock or can get them fairly quickly.

Meet The Owner
Hello my name is Eddie. I opened my first computer store, after i looked around to notice that people didn't have a proper place to repair their computers at.
Most mac repair places take days to repair. Not because it takes so long to repair them. but because most shops are incompetent or have bad work flow. Hence they fall behind and as result customers have to wait for repair to be completed much longer.
It is similar (if not worse)with companies like geek squad. They hardly do any inhouse repairs. Most of their computers get shipped out to manufacturers or other repair centers.
So again, people like yourself, have to wait 2-4 weeks get their computer back.
For that reason i was on a mission to change this industry and get computers fixed as fast as I can. So you and your family can get back to their zoom meetings as quickly as possible!
Another reason you should come here is because I fix most of the people's computer in the area anyway. Most just collect them and send them to me or I usually have to take care of their customers because the "other computer geniuses" break something and computer still ends up in our repair shop after that. I'm not saying that I'm perfect. I also make mistakes sometimes or sometimes get overwhelmed and forget something. But that doesn't happen very often. and if it does. It happens because of my own error or accident, not because I'm incompetent nor do i need to hide it by telling you to just go buy anohter computer cause this one is not fixable. Like other people do. I write this, because i really take it personally. And i don't understand why people have to lie instead of telling the person they don't know how to fix it. and just tell them to go look for some other options. I take this service seriously. I love doing it and i love providing nothing less than a truly NO-BS-Excellent service to people who come visit me! hope you will be one of them! Oh yes, and also in my free time i get out of town and shoot landscape photography! feel free to stop by our shop to see my artwork!
