Can't you prevent flexgate by reinforcing the wire with duct tape?

Can’t you solve the flexgate issue with the 2019 macbook pro by reinforcing it with duct tape. I know that the 2016-2017 was because the wire was too tight but because there is enough room for the 2018 and 2019 macbook pros can’t you just solve the issue my reinforcing it with tape before it breaks

That’s a good question. I did this on the 2016 model but I no longer have this macbook so I have no clue about the long term use. I did not use duct tap because it’s too think and just not the right tape. I did it using kapton tape. I laid the tape on a piece of glass and measured the flex cable and cut exact size the applied it on one side of the flex cable to add reinforcement. Before I did this, I opened and closed the lid while deserving how the flex is moving and you can see its dragging on the frame. Not sure how the 2019 models are designed.

Interesting observation, so it would seem the scraping of the cable would expose the shielding on these cables and ultimately cut the cable.

The root issue is a tight bend so fortifying won't solve that as the flex of the fine foil wires within and the added thickness even though its slight also can case issues and as its glued to the ribbon cable the two surfaces over time will break down as they shift back and forth slowly pulling the Kapton tape off.

So, there is no need to alter anything as its fixed in the 2018/2019 models.

Well its been more than 5 months and the person has yet to come back to get this machine fixed. The machine had the issue before I did the fix, it was not as bad as some that the whole display turned off. The tape may not solve it but may delay it. If you take a ribbon and bend it, you will see that its very easy to bend but if you increase its thickness, its much harder to bend.

To clarify the 2018 & 2019 models both have a newer backlight cable design 2018 MacBook Pros Try to Solve Flexgate Without Admitting It Exists.

There its nothing needed to fix this as its a non-issue in these models.

Sadly, the older 2016 & 2017 models have this problem. Apple so far has admitted the 13” models have the issue and are offering an extended warranty repair program. I would still go to them if I had a 15” and demaid a warranty exception as long as you can prove the issue is the same.

There are some reports of additional issues with the data side of the ribbon connections nothing firm at this point in time.
