Hello everyone,

Quite recently I bought a brand new mbp 2018 model and have been using it for 3 months and was glad with the purchase. As a firstime mac user I was suprised how efficient the OS actually is.

Unfortunely I noticed that there was something wrong with the laptop, and this probably happened in the time that I was using it.

Here are two examples of how it looks like. First it seemed as if it was coming from the exterior of the laptop but it's actually from inside of the chassis.
Before I send the laptop away for repair, would you guys know what could be the cause of this or how?

Kind regards

Hello and welcome.

What location is that a photo of - the bottom rear? It looks to me like a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth or LVDS display cable. I would definitely get it looked at. Has the MBP ever been taken apart?

Exactly, bottom rear. The Mbp has never been taken apart and I have bought it in april so it's quite new. I will but unfortunately won't have the time to get it checked at for awhile, otherwise I really hope I don't have to pay for it since it should fall under warranty.

Thanks for your reply.

No worries.

It could also be some form of copper shielding. I would think it would be an easy fix if it isn't something important, or you aren't experiencing any functions not working. Honestly, I would make time to get it looked at as soon as possible, since it was a recent purchase. The longer you wait may influence whether it is covered under warranty, and if it is an important cable, you could lose some functionality or cause further damage.

Let us know how it goes.
