[Petition] MacBook Pro 2016 and later LCD backlight issue - Apple's Extended Warranty Program

Posted:
in Genius Bar
Hello everyone!

More and more people are facing with stage light effect (appears at the bottom of the screen when you set at a high brightness level) and backlight shutdown (comes after opening the lid for above at a certain degree). Both of them caused by fractured display flex cable due to its design flaw.

I’ve just published a petition on change.org (https://www.change.org/p/apple-fix-all-new-macbook-pro-2016-or-later-with-stage-light-effect-or-backlight-shutdown) and created website called Flexgate (https://flexgate.me) related this issue where you can discover more info.

My laptop is affected too, so this is the reason why I am doing this all. I want to make Apple launch extended warranty program regarding this issue and I need your help guys.

I kindly ask you to sign this petition. Together we can achieve our goal. Thank you!

    I started facing the same problem since yesterday. I contacted apple support and after 1 hr and escalation, they just can't help. 

    I rather pay legal fees for Apple lawsuit rather pay for display replacement.

    Let me know how I can help

    I have replaced the keyboard twice at 2017/5
    I have the same screen backlight issues at 2018/12.

    I have the same problem. Display backlight turns off as I adjust the screen angle.
