I am currently unable to boot my Late 2013 MacBook Pro. When I attempt to boot, the backlight comes on, but there is no image on the screen.
When I try to boot into Safe Mode (by holding Shift), Recovery Mode (by holding Command + R), I see neither a backlight nor an image.
I have tried to use every resource available.
I have tried:
Safe mode boot (no backlight, black screen).
Recovery mode boot (no backlight, black screen).
Verbose mode (backlight, but no image).
Boot off alternative USB (backlight, but no image to choose device).
Opened the laptop hardware and checked the display cable connection
I was using my laptop one day, closed the lid, and when I opened it, this was this issue.
I do tinker with Linux on an alternate partition, but I didn’t do anything in particular prior to this issue. I thought maybe the boot loader got messed up, but I can’t even boot into recovery mode on the macOS partition.
Can anyone make a conjecture as to the cause, and/or help provide me with some debugging tips?
