Hi, I am using 13.3-inch MacBook Air 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 model. I am a fan of Mac Books and I like this one very much. I always handled this with care and it never dropped off or no problems. But, suddenly from last week I see a vertical green line on the screen. I have tried to reboot several times, but no use. Is this a problem with the screen or display card? Can I change any hardware component or I have to replace the screen altogether? Please advice how can I fix .
Green Vertical line displaying in the Mac Book Air
Hi Mark C Silva,
I am sorry to hear that you are facing this problem. Unfortunately, it seems like the LCD has been hit dislodging the Kapton flex circuit board from the LCD glass. It also could be a break in the cable ribbon or a loose connection. To test it, connect an external monitor to your MacBook Air as shown below:
If the external monitor does not show the line this means your screen needs to be replaced. This can be done by a certified technician.
I hope this helped.
