Cracked screen is black- would simply replacing it be enough?

My MacBook was stepped on (I think) and the screen is slightly cracked but not bad. The problem is the screen stays black so it cannot be used. I thought it was totally broken so it's been sitting around for about a year but then I got re-inspired to get this thing fixed.

It passes the flashlight test.

I have tried resetting it as well as typing in my password on the black screen- I've seen that has worked for some other people

Model A1278

Any ideas on if simply replacing the screen may fix my issue or if something more serious get broken?

I don't have a lot of experience with repairs but I also would rather risk fixing it more inexpensively myself.

Thank you so much for any help!!

There are 12 different machines with the A1278 designation running from 2008 - 2012. Please tell us exactly which one you have. Also, when you say it passed the flashlight test, what were your findings?

It says class B... I don't know if that helps at all! It's 13.3 " MacBook Pro and I want to say it is 2010, but memory fails.

When I turn it on the screen appears totally black but when I shine a light through the back of the screen on the apple logo I can see part of the screen. Wifi login etc

I would say it's not guaranteed, but does the unit turn on at all? The safer bet would be to buy a thunderbolt cable to plug in to an external display to see if the computer still works first before purchasing a screen.

I thought it didn't turn on, but then read the trick about testing with a flashlight and it actually is on, just black screen
