Screen replaced - Just a black screen now
I've recently replaced the screen on my 2020 13" Macbook Air M1, replacement went all fine, the thing boots, you get the chime, keyboard is backlit.
But, the screen is black. No backlight, nothing.
I've tried resetting SMC(?), NVRAM, power cycling to no avail.
Connecting to an external display, it works as intended (Currently mirrored), the internal screen is detected as it does show in Settings > Displays.
The webcam is working as I can unfortunately see myself when I open Facetime and get a preview.
I've tried reseating the cables again and still nothing.
Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
I bought the display from a UK eBay seller for £200 (rip me :( ) - contacted them to see what they say but it's strange.
Also tried increasing/decreasing screen brightness and that didn't work.
Why was it replaced? The screen suffered a hit in the top right of it and damaged it, no water damage or damage to the body/keyboard.
Also tried shining a bright torch behind the Apple logo and nada. Is that even still a thing you can do?
Replying here where I can actually attach images.
Ooh that's interesting!
I've taken a few pictures (I hope they're okay!), to me they look fine but what are your thoughts, worth a shot of me replacing this?
I promise the "goo" on some parts isn't liquid, feels more glue-y (not sticky like a soda)!
