Boots with a very dim black screen with a white column on the left
I knowingly bought a faulty MacBook Air recently where there was an issue with the display. I was hoping it was just some weird issue that would be resolved with something as simple as resetting NVRAM/PRAM, SMC or booting into safe mode, but this does not seem to be the case.
I already had a MacBook Pro from 2015 with a broken LCD, very easy to spot that it is in fact a broken LCD with all the magic rainbowy lines, black ink migrating across the screen etc., but this new faulty display is not like that which did give me some hope.
After further inspection upon the MacBook Air arriving, I noticed some weird small speck that seems to be kind of embedded into the glass of the display, this does seem to be outside the "LCD"-zone, aka. on the black edge part at the top.
I also spotted that the black plastic strip at the bottom of the display, with the "MacBook Air" logo in the middle seems to be cracked on the left-side.
The white column that I suspect is an attempt at displaying an Apple logo. This also seems to be the brightest I can get the display to be, and the only thing I was able to see. Once actually started and being functional (on an external display) I could not see anything at all on the built-in display.
The weird speck embedded in the glass at the top of the display, ~5cm from the left edge, around same distance as the camera from the top edge of the display

All feedback, suggestions and information is much appreciated! Judging from the very dim white line I suspect the backlight might be having some issues also maybe? I actually have no clue though. I am considering getting a replacement LCD-panel but thought I'd ask here first in case this is some other issue!
I might also add that the keyboard seems to be very dim as well, they both light up a little bit though, visible ex. when in a totally dark room, you can see both the screen and keyboard light up a little. Not much at all though.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
