Intel Mac :: Screen Blank On 27" Mid 2010?

Jun 5, 2012

Recently my iMac display goes black in the middle of using it.  Initially I thought it froze up and I had to force it to reboot.  But after this happned a couple of times I realized that I could stil hear the hard drive working and my peripheral lights (keyboard, etc) were still on.  On a hunch I put it to sleep (Option-Cmd-Eject).  After it goes silent I can press a key and the display comes back up and everything is normal (for a while). 

It's now been doing this regularly for the last 3 weeks.  Sometimes three or four times a day this occurs. When the screen goes black nothing seems to work except the sleep-wake thing.  I've tried the screen brightness keys too - but that doesn't work either. 

My software is up to date (Lion 10.7.4). This is a Mid 2010 iMac 27" with 12GB of RAM and the ATI Radeon HD5750.The regular software that I have running is:

MacBook Air :: 2010 13" MPA Screen Flickering & Frozen Screen?

Nov 5, 2010

I've had the new macbook air just two days now. Turned it on this morning, used it for like 5 minutes and the screen just started flickering, and the whole machine just froze on me! Had to do a system reset, but I'm a little concerned after spending over a grand on this macbook! Has anyone else experienced this? I'm actually thinking about returning the machine..

MacBook Air :: Screen Gets Blank - Need To Restart

Dec 21, 2010

Got this mac friday but haven't really played with it before yesterday. My problem is:

1) Yesterday I went for logging in to facebook, but suddenly the screen went green? Had to close the mac down and start it again.
2) After I had turned it on and was on the desktop the screen (with me doing nothing) went white, and I had to do the same again.
3) This morning when I wanted to turn the mac on, it wouldn't! But few hours later I tried again and there I could turn it on by pressing esc + start button.

Should I call for a replacement? (Already had two - 1 with dead pixel and 1 with creaking).

MacBook Air :: 13" 2010 Thin White Lines Across Bottom Half Of Screen?

Dec 9, 2010

Just received the new 13" macbook air yesterday and today have noticed some very thin horizontal banding lines across the bottom portion of the screen.

Has anyone else noticed this, or check to see if your one has this problem.

It is quite subtle but it makes the icons on the dock look as if they have a card like effect through them.

Easiest to check if you make your screen wallpaper the dark grey colour.

On this the top part of the screen seems consistent, but at the bottom part there is very thin white horizontal lines. I tried updating the software, but it seems to be the same - looks like a faulty display may have to send back,wondering if it could be fixed with a software update.

The strange thing is black and dark colours do not produce the effect it only shows up on greys or medium contrast colours like blue.

MacBook Air :: 2010 From 13" 2010 And IPad Owner's Point Of View

Oct 26, 2010

I have an iPad 32GB WiFi and a MacBook Pro as well so I was trying very hard to justify myself in getting an 11" MBA but ending up talking myself out of it. The 13" MBP is perfect for my uses. It's already lightweight and portable as it is. After playing with the 11" in the Apple store, I was impressed on how light it was. This no doubt blows away any netbook or any notebook in it's weight class in terms of size and performance. However, the MBP's battery life, hard drive space, and processing power OUTWEIGHS the reasons of dumping my 13" MBP for the Air. Also, I have it hooked up to a 21.5 Inch HP monitor at home and it's good enough to use as a main computer at home, and light enough to take on the road.

If I needed to lookup something quickly in bed or around the house, that's where the iPad comes in. If I needed to send a quick e-mail, my HTC Evo is already great at doing that. If I didn't have a 13" MBP or even the iPad, I would have most likely went ahead and purchased the MBA. Just now at this point, spending another $1000+ or getting rid of my MBP doesn't make much sense... yet.

MacBook Air :: White Ring Of Light In The Middle Of Blank White Screen?

I've begun to notice a ring, roughly three inches in diameter, in the middle of my Air, Rev C, Screen. It is a white ring, a couple of millimeters thick, that I can see best behind an all white screen, i.e. a blank page of a word processing document.

MacBook :: Using Screen Repair?

May 19, 2009

A bit of background:

Back in January I slipped on some ice and regrettably the LCD on my Blackbook did not survive. I have been making due with my computer plugged into a video out (A real pain to do work on) but I really want to get the darn thing fixes. I was really stupid and did not get the Apple Care (which likely would not cover this repair anyway).

Upon taking the laptop to Apple they quoted 800 to replace the unit with a refurb since it was well out of warranty. Everything but the LCD works just fine so I was wondering about getting a replacement screen and doing the repair or sending it out to another company.. My question:

1) What is your opinion on doing this (I cannot replace the whole laptop and I have a 2.16 C2D), is it really worth it? Is this a big repair job?
2) What price should I be looking at. These guys have the screen for $150 but I don't know if they are any good nor do I know of anybody who will do this. Is it something that can be done on my own (i would have a friend assist me). I am not bound to one vendor, but I have never had to do out of warranty repairs on a mac before so I don;t know where to go.
3) Any advice on where I should get the screen at or do business?
4) Am I just wasting my time?

THe reason I ask is that I really cannot afford a new machine right now, but if I can fix the screen like new for around $200 that would be much better. Any advice would be grateful.

How To Speed Up Macbook Air (2010)

Mar 20, 2012

Under Lion my 2010 (HDD) Macbook Air has been intolerably slow. It could take 10 minutes to start a program. When connecting to a projector, it could likewise take 10 minutes for it to resize windows during which it was unresponsive. I have been about to hurl it in the trashcan because this computer was just such an impediment to my work. But now I found the solution: don't run Safari. I had long suspected 2G ram combined with a slow HDD was the culprit. I tried to minimize the number of programs open, but let Safari run permanently. But it turns out Safari uses enormeous amounts of memory, and it has a tendency to just grow and grow its memory grab. Now, I quit Safari when I want to run other programs, and after this the computer is merely slow, not intollerably so.

MacBook Air :: Magsafe Connector Broken - How To Repair

Extremely annoying as it drops out of the charger all the time.

The top part actually sticks to the MacBook with the magnet, but the bottom thing just falls out.

Apple in Germany is sending me a replacement, but they had never heard of the issue so I had to send them pics.

MacBook Air :: MBA Rev A Hinge Repair?

Jun 26, 2009

So I just got my MacBook Air (rev A) back from AppleCare after my hinge (like many others', apparently) decided to randomly bust itself. I was very pleased that when I took my MBA to the Apple Store, they didn't bat an eye about replacing the hinge (I'd heard horror stories about Apple denying the part was defective and calling the damage a user error, even with computers covered under warranty). But I was shocked when my package arrived today and the letter inside detailed the parts replaced. Keep in mind, the only thing wrong with my computer (as far as I could tell) was a broken hinge. Here's what they replaced:

Antenna window
Video Display Panel
Bottom Case
Display Housing
Clutch (two different part numbers)
Top Case
Logic Board

MacBook Air :: How Long Does It Take To Repair MBA Hinges

Jun 30, 2010

I dropped my MBA rev. A last week (jun 23rd) to the Michigan Ave Apple Store.

I keep checking the online repair status page, it only shows "repair in progress" since then.

More interestingly I dropped my MBA after they ordered and got the replacement parts for me.

Originally I was thinking they would fix it in 15-20min, but has been 7 days and still in progress.

I called store, but there is no live-person answering repair calls, it does give exact same information as the web-page.

I don't want to drive there if it is not fixed, but I need my computer for my work.

Software :: Macbook Screen Repair?

May 3, 2009

I attempted to repair a macbook screen for a friend. She spilled coffee near the top of the screen so I figured wiping the inside clean would do it. I was able to disassemble the screen with no problem but had to take out the plastic sheets behind the LCD and clean them. All went well until I had to put them together with the LCD. I think I got them out of order and can't find anywhere that tells me what order they go in. I know the hard plastic one goes up against the back of the LCD and the others I am lost with.

MacBook Air :: How To Know About 2010 13" Hinge?

Dec 24, 2010

I just purchased a new 13 inch macbook air with the 1.86 ghz processor , 2 gb of ram and a 128 gb ssd.

It is currently being delivered to me through UPS but I am worried if this new generation is plagued by the infamous "Hinge issue" that the 2008 model had.

Can anyone comment on the hinge structure of the new model and if it will last at least 3 years without hinge problems ?

MacBook Air :: Upgrade The RAM In 2010?

Apr 8, 2012

My brother gave me his 2010 11' MacBook Air. Its a great laptop, but it could definitely use more memory. It is my understanding that the memory is soldered to the logic board at the factory and is not user replaceable. Would it be possible for me to still bring the laptop to a retail store and pay to have them professionally upgrade the RAM?

MacBook Pro :: Cracked Screen - Repair It?

Jul 3, 2009

I took my MacBook Pro on holiday with me to do some work whilst away, and I have acquired an unwanted crack down the side of my screen.

It doesn't cause any problems with my viewing as the majority of it is offscreen on the black boarder, however whenever I catch a glimpse of it in my periphery it breaks my heart a little bit- no-one wants a huge crack on the thing they love the most.

Shall I get it repaired? If so, how much, where would be best/cheapest?

MacBook Pro :: Blank Screen - Hiccup?

Jan 1, 2011

I was using it in my bedroom, it was plugged in. I went to make some food, and upon my return I am greeted by a blank screen, probably just a hiccup right? So I held the power button down expecting it to spring back in to life. But it didn't. It wouldn't turn back on. At all. Luckily, I thought, I have my old 2006 Macbook that I keep as a back up just for times like this. As it hasn't been turned on for a while, the low battery warning comes on, so I plug it in. 10 seconds later, it hibernates. I switch it back on, but it keeps hibernating for no good reason. So I think restarting it will solve the problem. It didn't. It too, now wouldn't turn back on. At all.

In the space of a few minutes, they both completely died. I've tried resetting SMC, PRAM, everything I've found on Apple's support page and forums like this. Nothing has worked. The light on the power cable glows orange when plugged in, so it is still charging, and the battery indicator lights on the side of the MBP work fine. Aside from that, they are both completely lifeless...........
