Internal SSD HD not readable.. Then screen stopped coming on.
I came home the other day to see my MacBook Pro had the folder icon with ? on the screen..
I called Apple and they said they thought the SSD HD had failed… but to go into an Apple store to confirm. I went into the Apple store and they confirmed a failed SSD HD and they recommended I purchase a new one and install it myself.
I installed the new SSD HD and the computer still didn't recognize it. I took the back plate back off to check for loose connectors then put it back together. After that while it was loading the recovery tool the screen flickered then went dark/turned off. The computer is still on and the track pad clicks and I get the startup chime. But the screen is defiantly off. There is a red light coming from inside the vents by the screen hinge.. not sure if that light is always on or if it’s indicating there is an issue.
At this point the computer wont recognize the SSD HD and the screen stopped working. I have a feeling the SSD HD did not fail and that there is something else going on here.
This MacBook Pro is in excellent condition and hasn't gotten wet (that I know of) or been dropped.
Any help trouble shooting would be greatly appreciated… Justin
