Heyo, first post, here we go. My old macbook's logic board is toast and causes the screen to stay black. The only way I can see for a bit is when I bring the brightness to 0 and increase brightness by 1. It gives me about 2 seconds of visible screen then goes to black again.

Is it possible to make an automator script that would keep switching between settings of bright 0 and bright 1?

thx!

Yep. Make three automator actions - run applescipt, run applescript, and loop.

for the first applescript

tell application "System Events"
key code 107
end tell

for the second applescript

tell application "System Events" key code 113 end tellThen loop it! If it's too rapid, as mine seemed to be, you could put a 'Pause' action in between the applescripts.

I'd recommend running the loop for one-minute as a test run!
