Does my MacBook Pro 15 inch 2016 have FlexGate problem?

My MacBook have different syntomps than this described by iFixit here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aihRru-l...

Mine is kind of “flickering” and it is usually doing this when tilt screen - definitely no “light bleed”

Could it be GPU? But why usually (which means not always) it flicker when tilt display.

I know about Apple MacBook 13” 2016+ display replace program but no 15” - are those 15” are safe?

I’ve done all simple tricks to be sure like - clean radiators - so I know GPU is not overheating (Mac Fan Control app installed and set to keep 50 C temp) - new and latest Mojave - PRAM Reset

Thank You for help

Here it is Dan:


Flickering can be the best visible from 1:47 and other times.

How about posting a few pics, or better yet a small vid showing the issue. Adding images to an existing question

I'm not sure if you have a problem or not.

At the very beginning I do see some staining on the left top side of the screen which could be just dirt before you start the system. Make sure you use a clean micro cloth with a screen cleaner applied to the cloth to then wipe the display. If the staining fails to come off you may need to speak with Apple on getting it replaced.

It does appear your screen is a bit washed out (over bright). You may want to open the Display system preferences and calibrate your display. You also may want to adjust the brightness manually lowering it a bit.

I've watched that video and I am sure it looks different in real life - it is poor iPhone X camera :(

100% pixels are fine with glass and coating - just that flickering :(


A flicker is not likely a bad cable, at least not like the FlexGate issue. Can you give us some more background. Like did you get your system wet at some point?

my 15" mbp late 2016 looks like the pic shown, except my lines are vertical, top to bottom. i also wonder if the display cable would fix the issue. due to the problem, which has never been resolved, i resorted to buying a new 15" 2018 mbp. i rarely turn on the 2016 model, only to be used as a secondary back up to my time capsule.


@RANDY - Sorry no this is not a #flexgate issue, this is a T-CON issue often caused by overheating. What happens is if you block the vents the location of the T-CON board puts it at risk of overheating as its between the two heat transfer fin areas of the heat sink.


DAN, - Thank you for your prompt reply! just started up my Late 2016 MBP. I was wrong! it does look like the pic shown. a grid of horizontal lines flickering. if you gently tap the display, sometimes it clears up for a while. other times not so much. Would a replacement Display cable fix this problem? Haven't used the 2016 much, due to display problem, basically use the 2018 model, but would still like to fix , if possibly. Hate to see things broken!! Love IFIXIT!

Lines horizontal or vertical tend to be a broken LCD screen. What happens is the LCD glass panel breaks free from the ribbon cable that connects to it or the glass has cracked.

Did you bang or drop your system or sit something heavy on the display that was pointed? Post a few pics or a vid so we can see more clearly Adding images to an existing answer create a new answer.

Basically you'll need a new screen MacBook Pro 15" Retina (Late 2016-2017) Display Assembly and here's the guide MacBook Pro 15" Touch Bar Late 2016 Screen Replacement
