But before we go further, let’s discuss a common shocking experience of MacBook users. Many people have complained that their MacBook screen just cracked by itself without any external force. But is this really possible?
Can MacBook Screen Crack by Itself?
A crack on your MacBook screen is caused by some form of force exerted on its screen. However, the intensity or the amount and kind of force exerted that causes cracks on the laptop screen can vary. On some models, just a small amount of force is required if applied perfectly to crack the LCD panel of the MacBook.
Sometimes, when customers bring in their cracked MacBook screen, we do see the impact point that caused the crack on the LCD panel; other times, it seems the screen began to crack from a sort of twisting motion. On some models, the screen’s LCD panel is so slim, and the metal housing is small to the point that it permits some bend in the display when opened or held by a corner. The LCD panels are very weak, so this slight twisting can cause the LCD panel to crack inside. Most times, this happens when the MacBook is placed in a backpack that is excessively full.
Another situation that makes people believe that the MacBook screen cracked by itself is when a little, not easily observable, crack has formed from a hit, drop, or bend. The little crack in the LCD remains so little that it isn’t obvious for quite a while. Then sooner or later, something makes the crack expand just like how a windshield crack will expand in a chilly climate after going over a bad road. So it may appear that your perfect MacBook screen just unexpectedly cracks with no outer impact or force, but in reality, there was a little crack that was aggravated by something that normally wouldn’t have caused any problem.
Another type of MacBook screen damage people experience is a vertical bar on the screen. This might be a software or hardware problem. You can try to connect the MacBook to an external monitor and see if the display is fine. If the display is fine, then you have a hardware problem but if not it’s a software problem. The hardware problem can be caused by a failing ribbon cable connected to the LCD panel or it could be the logic board or the data cable is faulty. In any case, the best way to determine the fault is to bring it to our technician for free diagnostics. Most times, the best way to fix this issue is to replace the whole LCD panel or the damaged cable.
Furthermore, if you frequently cover your MacBook laptop’s camera when it’s not in use, you probably might want to think twice before closing it without removing the cover. This is because covering your MacBook camera and closing it can cause your screen to crack. Apple recently published this information on their support page and warned users not to leave their camera cover on when closing their laptops. A failure to do so will probably damage the laptop’s screen because the clearance between the laptops’ screen and its keyboard is designed to very tight tolerances.
