An authourised Apple store have told me I need a screen replacement after my screen went dead. When I connect the MacBook Pro (late 2013 model) to my Samsung TV via hdmi I see the log in screen on the TV. I enter my password all ok but as the MacBook unlocks the TV screen goes black.

I know normally have have to go into setting and manually tell the MB to use the external display but i can’t do this because obviously I can’t see anything.

I’ve also tried Cmd F1 but that doesn’t seem to do anything.

Any suggestions gratefully received!!
