A1989 2019 MacBook Pro Hairline Crack Repair

Some computers have a very obvious crack in the screen, while others have a small crack that you may not notice at first glance. These newer MacBook Pro A1989 models from 2019 frequently have a completely black screen after a hairline crack is caused. Many of my clients believe there is something more wrong with their computer than just a screen issue since they can’t see any image at all on the display.

Usually, this almost black screen behavior is caused by a hairline crack on the top right left side of the display. As you can see in the picture below, this computer had a completely black screen other than a small crack on the top left. This type of issue is always the LCD panel in my experience. I have replaced a lot of these LCD panels over the years with this exact issue. This issue isn’t limited to just the A1989, but is found across all the MacBook Pro laptops.

Replacing Only The A1989 LCD Panel

Most repair shops will tell you that if your MacBook Pro A1989 has a problem with the screen, you will need to replace the entire display assembly. This display assembly replacement repair is expensive, and usually requires a special order of the part, making it take a while to complete. I have taken a lot of time to be able to offer an alternative to expensive display assembly replacement; LCD only replacement.

Most of the time when a display is cracked, it is just the LCD panel that is damaged. There are of course situations where the damage was caused by a big fall or major trauma that has created physical issues other than a cracked LCD panel, but those are rare in my experience. As long as your display is not warped and the corners of the display are not bent, I can replace just the LCD panel!

If you want to check your housing for a warp, just close the display and make sure it sits flush against the topcase. If it is warped it will not sit flush and you will be able to see the warp plainly. To check for bent corners is even easier as a bent corner is super obvious when you look at the display. The reason the corners need to not be bent is that a bent corner will not let the new LCD panel sit properly when installed.

The one other thing to consider when looking at replacing just the LCD panel is if the damage that caused the display to crack also caused damage to the back housing. If the housing is dented, it could cause a cosmetic white spot after the repair.

If you fill out my quote request form, you can attach a photo of the damage on your computer and I will get back to you if an LCD only replacement is right for you. It is the best way to go about 99% of the time!

By replacing just the broken part, I am able to save you hundreds off the price that is normally charged by other shops or the Apple store for this repair.
