Default MAC SCREEN LIGHTING IS EXTERMELY DARK AND SCREEN CAN ONLY BE SEEN WITH FLASHLIGHT THROUGH APPLE LOGO

My macbook pro 13" suddenly has a really dark screen that can only be seen with a flashlight through the apple logo. I am extremely annoyed becuase i need to use my mac and is always having problems. My mac had the screen replaced early last year. Ive checked the brightness and the control ,P, R etc.

P.S. i hate apple

Sounds the the classic led backlight driver chip blown issue, you'll need a new logic board OR to desolder/replace the blown driver chip.

Bad news is the logic board is pretty much the most expensive part, and unless you can make a stencil and reflow station you'll be SOL doing the solder job :/
