Flickering screen when MacBook Pro touch bar 2016 is hot

Hi, my screen always flicker whenever its getting hot. Sometimes the display just turn dead and I have to shut the lid and turn it back on again. I’ve been getting a couple of thin bars flickering at the bottom of the screen as well.

Usually happens when I run graphic programs such as Lightroom, Photoshop or even watching videos on Netflix and YouTube.

Is this the “flexgate” people talking about?

Sadly no this is not the flexGate issue.

This is a CPU/T-CON failure. Basically the video RAM used by the CPU or the T-CON board has a problem.

Your system has only one graphics engine! The intergraded within the CPU (Intel HD Graphics 550)

In this case the T-CON board is dropping signal from the GPU. Which could be a couple of things!

Apple has had an issue with the newer 2016 onward Intel systems which placed the T-CON board within the main case allowing it to get cooked!

You may only need to clean the dust buildup within the fans and the heatsinks fin areas so the system is about to cool effectively. The other action is to run a good thermal monitoring app like TG Pro so you can monitor your systems temps and also allows you to set a thermal threshold to ramp up the fans (turbo).

The other direction is not run heavy apps that run your system hard.

Sadly the only way to fix this if the problem doesn’t subside is to replace the display assembly or the logic board after it has been properly tested to figure out if the signal is failing getting to the T-CON or if the T-CON its self has failed.

Unfortunately the program is only for 13" MacBook Pro. I have a 15". Is it also covered?
