Hello all,

 

I’m experiencing a weird issue with my 2012 Macbook Pro.

 

The first issue is that there is no display on my Mac once I turn it on.

 

I hear that the computer turn on but no display (but there is “some” light)

 

Keyboard doesn’t light up either.

 

The only way I could see the screen is to plug an hdmi cable to my TV, and turn on the macbook in safe mode. I deleted all recent downloads, checked the settings. Nothing happens.

 

I backed up all my data, and use the recovery start up, and installed the new IOS (without using my backup) and still nothing. If I don’t start it up in safe mode, the loading bar goes halfway, then the apple disappears and it stays like that.

 

Any recommendation before I bring it to the store and wait 2 months to get it back?

 

Thanks!

 

ps: I tried several other steps found online, but nothing worked.

Unplug all external devices and try the following in this order:

 

Reset SMC

Reset PRAM / NVRAM

Are you able to boot into safe mode ?

 

Try Apple Diagnostic to check possible Hardware issues. I think this is one and you need to go to an Apple Store to solve the problem.

It would be hardware problem, but it’s more often a software issue that can be resolved with some simple troubleshooting steps.
