A1708 / EMC 2978 — Released October 2016, this entry-level MacBook Pro retains its traditional function keys (as opposed to the OLED Touch Bar). The function key version packs an Intel Core i5 and two Thunderbolt 3 ports.

Display MacBook Pro 13" (A1708) anno 2016

Hi, I have a 2016 13" MacBook Pro Fn system with a display problem it turns off when lifting the screen beyond a certain angle.

Unfortunately I'm not covered by the Apple recall because the time is up. I'm ask if the problem is caused by the LCD-base connection cables or something else?

Joseph

This answer leads me to total despair; I was hoping for the possibility of replacing some cables to solve the problem ... sob!

To add to @spaeder answer here's a more detailed explanation, in your case you have the most extreme case:

It is caused by the cable that connects the LCD with its small board. Its not the small cable that connects the Logicboard (Mainboard) with the small Display Board.

Here is a pic of the Display with the Board and the Cables that break.

thank you for the reply; therefore the two cables 'on the sides' of the attached figure have to be replaced; not the small flat in the center. Right?
