I have a 2022 MacBook Air M2. I dropped it on its side while the lid was open. The top left corner of the screen cracked slightly. And for a few days, the laptop and screen still worked, just with the small crack. But then, after a few days the screen starts turning off when I open the lid.
- If the screen has been working while the lid is open, it continues working, no issues.
- When I close the lid and re-open it, the screen comes on, stays on for 5 seconds and then turns back off. The laptop is still working since I can use it with an external display just fine.
- If I keep opening and closing the lid, the screen eventually comes back on and stays on.
- If I connect the laptop to a charger and then open and close the lid, it still turns off after 5 seconds but tends to get to a stable state where it stays on sooner.
Because of #1, I feel this isn't an issue with the screen itself. Looking up online, I found someone who said the display port was loose when they had dropped their Mac here. But the steps they follow seem very involved. I'm wondering if someone can look at the symptoms above and tell me what the likely cause is?
