MacBook Pro :: White Vertical Line Down The Right Side Of Internal Display

Jun 21, 2014

I have a white vertical line down the right side of my internal brand new macbook pro 13" display. I've done the following:

-Shutdown the computer, and restarted in Safe Mode by pressing the Shift key after the restart tone

-Shutdown the computer, and restarted by pressing Command, Option, P & R after the restart tone

-Checked display resolution, Best for Retina

-Hooked it up to a Dell external monitor and via projection to screen. There are no lines on the external or secondary screens

-Just curious, I ran a color utility which can not repair 4 items, maybe this is another issue. 

This is a brand new Macbook Pro, just out of the box. It was fine for two days without any issues, fine last night while in use, opened it up this morning with the line.

Intel Mac :: Vertical Ant Line Across Display

Apr 19, 2012

I started noticing what I describe as ant-lines running vertically across my late 2009 27" iMac. I am fairly certain that they were not there before but I can't really remember. I did a search and found some discussions regrading video issues and vertical line anomalies but none like what I am seeing. url...It's noticable from a distance of about 2 feet and closer. It's not visible on white or black but midtones is where I see it. It gets really distracting at about 20" and closer, especially in iPhoto when scrolling through photos.Has anyone else seen anything like this and do you guys think I will have any luck getting something like this fixed with a Genius appointment? I do still have AppleCare.

Intel Mac :: 5inch Display Vertical Blue Line Appeared

Jul 6, 2012

Yesterday a vertical blue line appeared on my Mac display, which can be seen all the time but not when it is turned off.I can't make a screenshot off it, you can't see it on them.My Warranty just ran out one month ago.And I didn't used the imac very often, wasn't much gaming or running it the whole day, just using it for school works.Actually I am very disappointed of Apple, bought my first imac because I thought instead of a PC it would last 4 years at least.

anyone has experienced a wide (2cm) white vertical line on a macbook pro. Screenshots are OK so it's not the GFX but hopefully someone may know if it is likely to be a cable or the actual LCD?

Intel Mac :: Vertical Black And White Lines On Screen

Mar 5, 2012

Simply using my Imac for watching tv on the web, Hulu, and left to help my wife get groceries in the house. My wife checked her email and closed Safari.

I came back in roughly 10 minutes from when she shut down Safari to see a black screen with white pinstriping, and the mac being totally unresponsive. Shut down and rebooted, sent off the report to Apple, and am now here with seemingly no problems. 

Needless to say, as a photographer this computer is just about as important as my camera. Should I be worried? discovered the thread to this issue, which appears to be quite extensive.

IMac :: Display Has Yellow Vertical Line?

Mar 30, 2009

I have a 1.83 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo iMac that has developed a vertical yellow line in the display that won't go away even when restarted. It's like a 1 pixel column of dead pixels right in the middle of the screen. I think it's still under warranty. Is this something that can be fixed under the warranty?

Intel Mac :: Have Vertical Line On Scree Of It?

May 18, 2012

I have been a Mac user for 20 years because their product has been reliable despite the higher cost. Recently a pink verticle line started left side of screen. My extended care has expired. They charged me $49 to talk to tech support who said it was a hardware problem. They said the cost would be mine. I explained how numerous complaints about this issue is on the internet and they should pay for the repair. i have to drive 50 miles to an authorized Mac repair shop. I am disgusted with their product and lack of concern for an ongoing problem. Probably will not buy another Apple product since they care so little about quality anymore.

PowerPC :: Single, Vertical Line/streak On Screen - Is It Fixable

Dec 26, 2006

My PB/667 took a fall about 18 mos ago. It's been fine ever since, except there is a single vertical line RIGHT DOWN THE CENTER - top to bottom. It's about two pixels wide and appears to be a bright green/near white color. Any display pixes that fall on this line are not visible.

A coworker suggested that this could be fixed but didn't offer how. Have any of you heard of this sort of issue? Is it fixable?

OS X :: 24" IMac Faint Vertical Line Of Pixels On The Screen?

Mar 12, 2009

i noticed a faint vertical line of pixels on the far left of my screen. they weren't black or colored, just faint/dim. i tried switching my desktop background, and the line was still there. i restarted my computer, and the line was still there. i shut down the computer, thinking that i would find the line there in the morning and have to take it to the apple store.

when i turned the computer on the next morning, there was no line. however, later that evening i noticed a reappearance of the line. i restarted the computer and left for a while. when i came back later, i woke the computer from sleep mode, and the line was gone.

there was no line on the computer this morning, although after a couple hours of use, i noticed that two lines had developed on the edge of where i had application windows open -- in this case, both yahoo messenger for mac. curiously, this didn't happen with other windows (finder, safari, etc).

MacBook Air :: Randomly Has Gray Vertical Line Appear Down Middle Of Screen?

Aug 25, 2014

My macbook air has randomly developed an issue with its display. Occasionally, when t's already running, a grayish/white line runs vertically towards the middle of the screen. It's about an inch thick. The computer will still run as normal, you just can't see the part of the screen being covered by the line. When I restart my mac line goes away. It randomly comes back again and the process starts all over.

OS X :: Fuzzy White Line Through MBP Display?

Jul 21, 2010

I actually don't know how long I've had this problem, as I just sort of noticed it one day (it's not all that readily apparent). The title of this thread basically says it all. There's a "fuzzy," thin white(ish)/translucent band that stretches horizontally across my 15'' glossy MacBook Pro display (purchased in early 2010, so I guess it's considered a mid 2009 model), about an inch up from the bottom of the bezel. It's only super noticeable on top of relatively neutral colors. I'm quite certain that it's a hardware issue, as it doesn't appear in screenshots. I've attached a photograph to this thread so you can see it for yourself.. the band I'm talking about is just above the mouse pointer (and clearly my dock is hidden so you can see it easier). If there are any hardware savvy people here, I'd be most appreciative if you could clue me in to the exact nature of the problem, and whether or not you think I could fix it myself... I think my basic 1 year warranty is still good, but I haven't decided if the problem is worth living without my mac for a few days (or weeks? this is my first apple computer, so I don't know how long repairs typically take).

The line is not majorly visible, but it is just annoying considering i payed �1000 for this iMac.

MacBook Pro :: White Line On The Top Of Retina Display?

Aug 23, 2014

I have noticed a white line (photo 1) on the top of my retina display (MacBook Pro 13" retina mid 2014) when I open the Launchpad. In other conditions the line seems to be absent. For example, if I run App Exposé (photo 2), I don't notice any line on the top of the screen. Is it a normal behavior for the retina display? Is it a hardware or software issue?

IMac :: 21.5" Vertical Black Line/Mark Down Left Hand Side Of Screen?

Sep 11, 2010

I have only recently started noticing this, it is mostly visible on the white screen at boot up but just faintly noticed it now against my background.

It is a fading black line going down the left hand side of the screen, it starts at the top kind of fades in the middle then comes out again.

I honestly have no idea what this is, i will try catch a picture on my phone soon and post it up.


UPDATE: Sometimes the line is clear, sometimes it is faint and even sometimes it isn't even there!

MacBook Pro :: White Vertical Lines On 2010 13" Screen?

Jul 19, 2010

I've had my MBP for about 2 weeks and yesterday a white vertical line about an inch long appeared on the right edge of the screen.

It went away after a restart, so I thought nothing of it, but now another one has appeared. Picture:

They mostly appear only on the desktop, but occasionally crop up when I'm running apps.

Is this something I can fix or is it a video adapter issue? I have searched and come up with some similar motherboard issues but they are mostly older macs.

MacBook :: When I Move Screen Up Or Down A White Thin Line Flashes Across The Screen?

Mar 22, 2010

there are two things that the macbook is doing to me. one is that sometimes when i move the screen up or down (the hinge is rather stiff) a white (thin) line flashes across the screen. but recently, while randomly browsing through the internet, the screen almost... i guess faded to a gray screen, but like gradually, and not like a kernel error, like the display just faded away. happened twice in a row, did a battery pull and now wont do it again.

PowerPC :: Blinking Screen For Few Seconds And Then White And Vertical Grey Lines

Mar 25, 2009

The other day the screen started blinking randomly. It'll flicker for a few seconds and then go white with vertical grey lines for a few seconds. Then it will go back to normal. There doesn't seem to be a pattern to it. Sometimes it will go through that process for five minutes and then stop. Other times I can be working on it for hours and nothing will blink or act screwed up.

IMac Intel :: Vertical White And Gray Bars Appear?

Mar 7, 2009

Twice in the last couple of days, these white and gray vertical bars/lines would appear on my IMAC screen. In between those times, my screen just went black, but I can tell the IMAC was still on, because it wasn't a pitch black as if the computer was off. Each time, the only way I could get the screen to appear back to normal was to turn off the computer and turn it back on?

This is not good. This is my second MAC. The first one after a year and a half, just poofed up in smoke. (Seriously, that is exactly what happened. I was sitting there, and all of a sudden the screen went black and a puff of smoke appeared from the back.) And now after owning this second one for almost two years, I've suddenly started getting these vertical white and gray bars and the black screen.

Anyone have any idea? I was simply looking up info on a website when these events happened.
