MacBook Pro :: Colors Reversed On External Monitor After Connecting To Sony TV?

May 20, 2012

I have an 15" Macbook Pro (Lion) with external HP monitor, which has been working fine. It is connected to Thunderbolt port via DVI.Today I connected the MBP to a Sony TV using Thunderbolt port via HDMI, which worked. When I switched back to the external HP monitor, colors were reversed on the HP monitor (you can read the contents but the colors are mostly green and pink). The MBP internal monitor displays correctly. I've tried rebooting the computer, resetting the HP monitor to factory settings, and deleting the HP monitor profile. No change.

OS X :: External Monitor On Macbook Pro - Flickering Between Yellowish And Normal Colors

Feb 14, 2010

I am trying to connect my Macbook Pro (bought Fall 2009) to a external monitor - an Asus VW222. I use a VGA converter which I bought together with the mac, I plug a VGA cable in the converter and then I plug it into the display port of the mac.

I do get an image on the Asus monitor, but it is not very useful. It is flickering between a yellowish color everywhere and normal colors. Moreover I cannot change the resolution. If I set the resolution to 1680*1050 (the Asus' native res) then the image still looks scaled/grainy and it doesn't fit on the monitor. The top menu for example is outside of the screen and the whole image is slightly moved to the right so I have a black bar to the left. If I set the resolution to the mac screens native res, 1440*900, the image fits on the Asus but is of course scaled. I tried go to system preferences and calibrate, but it did not help.

MacBook Air :: Connecting MBA With External Monitor?

May 30, 2009

I just got a Samsung 2333sw monitor. When I plug into my 128GB SSD Rev B, it automatically uses the samsung as 2nd monitor. The screen is fully covered.

But when I select mirror (using the samsung as primary screen and turned the brightness of my MBA to the lowest), the samsung LCD picture is not clear and the screen is like 4:3.

Does this means that MBA can't support ext LCD as primary screen at 1080 resolution?

How about for those who has the new Apple 24" Cinema display? Can you use that as primary screen?

MacBook Pro :: Error When Connecting The MBP 2010 To An External Monitor

Jun 3, 2010

I have been using my MBP (2010, i7 17" model) with a 24" HP external HDMI LCD monitor. The connection is via the Apple's Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter. It was working perfectly the first day I tried. However, when I connected the external monitor to the MBP yesterday, I found that the LCD screen of the external monitor was blinking. It lasted for about 5 minutes and then the problem was gone by itself. I have just reconnected my MBP to the monitor again. The problem reappears. Anybody knows what is going on and how to fix it?

MacBook Air :: Air Optimised For Clamshell Mode When Connecting To External Monitor?

Jan 3, 2011

I have used my ultimate 11" on usual mirrored display on battery power and in clamshell mode.

A few hours ago, I was running many apps in mirrored mood and my air just began to lag so badly after an hour. Expose is slow as well as surfing and clicking. I wondered what happened. Then I plug back power supply and close the lid of Air, hence running in clamshell mode. It then returned to full speed.

Please help explain to me if title is true. It is disturbing to learn that plugging into to ext monitor could lag.

MacBook Air :: (10.9.3) Grey Flickering Screen After Connecting To External Monitor

Jun 2, 2014

Recently I connected my macbook air (bought it in 2011, now on Version 10.9.3) with a Panasonic TV (TX-32LM70F) via Thunderbolt to HDMI adapter. After I disconnected the external device, the macbook air's screen still worked normal, but when i restarted it, it was only flickering grey.  

I found out that it actually boots normally and i can use it with an external monitor (in fact I am using it right now), but that the built-in macbook screen simply doesn't work anymore.  

I tried to restart while connected and while disconnected to an external screen, I have reset the SMC Controller, I have reset the PRAM Controller, but it hasn't changed.  

This is actually the second time something like this happenend (it was another external device i connected it to), and last time, about a few weeks ago, it just worked again after a few days for no reason, all i did was wait until all energy was gone from the battery and the reload it. So might it be a battery problem? Or is it some controller i don't know? It was the same phenomenon two times: connect to external monitor - disconnect - built-in screen still works - restart - built in screen only flickers grey - macbook still boots and works fine with the very external monitor that might have caused the problem.  

MacBook Air, OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)

Hardware :: Connecting MBP To An External Monitor Possible?

Sep 1, 2009

I've recently bought my first MBP and since I also have a Dell 27' monitor, I'd like to hook the MBP up to the big screen for movies and photo processings.

So given that mini displayport is the only video-out option on MBP and my Dell monitor only has a soundbar speaker (powered by the monitor but not built in), even if I got a mini displayport to HDMI cable (with audio capability) I would still need to connect that soundbar speaker to my MBP via the audio cable to get the sound right?

Hi- I have an ibook G4 (mid 2005). I'd like to be able to connect it to my new 22" external display so that I can have dual monitors. However, the external display plug obviously does not fit into the slot in the ibook.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Sony Bravia - No Sound

Oct 2, 2009

I used to have a White Macbook. This connected to my Sony Bravia via a Mini DVI-DVI, then a DVI-HDMI cable. The sound went from the headphone jack on the MB to two connectors on the TV (L&R). Job done.

Now I have a MBP and am trying the same thing. I have a Mini Displayport-HDMI cable, with the HDMI then going to the TV. I have the same audio connection. The result is perfect picture but no sound at all.

Does anyone have any idea how I can get the sound working? I have the same issue with my unibody Macbook as well. These are the connections I have on the TV;

Connector Type: 2 x HDMI ( 19 pin HDMI Type A ) � 1 x VGA input ( 15 PIN HD D-Sub (HD-15) ) � 1 x S-Video input ( 4 PIN mini-DIN ) � 1 x SPDIF output ( TOS Link ) � 1 x headphones ( mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm ) � Composite video input ( RCA phono ) � Component video input ( RCA phono x 3 ) � 2 x SCART ( 21 PIN SCART ) � 1 x audio line-in ( mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm ) � Audio line-in ( RCA phono x 2 ) � 1 x audio line-out ( RCA phono x 2 )

MacBook :: Connecting To Sony TV - No Sound Output

May 24, 2012

I spent most of last night trying to get this done! No problems with the vision, cable between Macbook and HDMI input on the TV is fine. I have a 3.5mm Jack to Phono lead which I thought would work for the Audio. No sound. Maybe I'm not setting the Sony TV up properly, or I'm putting them in the wrong inputs (I've tried the all I think). There is a headphone (3.5mm) on the TV...but surely that's an output.

MacBook Pro :: When Connecting To An External Monitor, Will There Be A Quality Difference Between Using A DVI Adaptor Or A HDMI Adaptor

Jun 18, 2012

I am looking to connect my macbook pro to an Acer G24 monitor, but am not sure what best way to do it.The resolution of the monitor is 1920x1200, and it is a 24" screen, with VGA, DVI, and HDMI ports.My macbook pro is the late 2011 entry model.  

Will there be a difference in the quality of the picture on my external monitor, depending on whether I connect using a HDMI cable or a DVI cable? I will have to buy an adapter for each of these, to plug into the mini DVI port on my mac, will this alter the quality of the picture at all? If I were to buy an Apple Tv, would I be able to plug it straight into my monitor using a HDMI cable? If so, how would I manage the audio, as my monitor does not have speakers. Would using a thunderbolt cable (with HDMI adaptor) increase the quality of the picture of my monitor?

Hardware :: Connecting MacBook To Sony Bravia KDL-40XBR9?

Jun 15, 2010

I recently bought a Sony Bravia KDL-40XBR9. I have it hooked up to my MacBook using an HDMI to DVI connection. But, I'm not getting sound through the TV. So, I bought a 3.5mm to RCA (one red, one white connection) cable. I've plugged the red and white connections into all of the red/white ports on the back of the tv but I'm still not getting sound out of the tv.

How do I get the tv to use the HDMI for video but the RCA for sound?

I am not getting much of anything in the proper area of this site. And since I am using a mbp I suppose it is fine to post this here. I have an all-in-one sony and I want to use it as an external display. So far, I hate screenrecycler because I can't figure it out and it seems like it's gonna be too slow. Anybody know of any hardware that I can use? Can it do it through any of the ports on my mbp?

MacBook Pro :: Dell Monitor Not Calibrating Properly / Colors Seems To Be Washed Out

Feb 8, 2010

I usually use my 2209WA connected to my Desktop running Windows 7, but sometimes I'll connect it to my MBP. Windows seems to have found a color profile that works very well, which it got from Windows Update, created by Dell, presumably.It might not be good enough for someone who needs 100% accurate color, but it's good enough for me.

I tried two different profiles for this monitor connected to my MBP. The first was one I downloaded from a forum somewhere, and the second was the one Windows is using, copied over. The display looks OK with both, but the color depth isn't nearly as good as it is on Windows. Connected to my MBP, the colors look washed out and flat, while the same colors are much richer when the monitor is connected to my PC. For example, pure blue (#0000FF) looks faded when the monitor is on my MBP, and much deeper when it is on my PC. I tried changing the gamma setting under OS X (manual calibration), but it didn't have much effect. It is set at 2.2 for both 2209 profiles and for my MBP LCD's profile.

How can I make my monitor properly calibrated when it is hooked up to my Mac?

In both cases I am connecting the monitor with DVI (just moving the cable since I'm too cheap to buy a switch), and both OSes have it set at native resolution. The settings on the monitor (color, brightness, contrast, etc) do not change when I switch computers.

Hardware :: No Screen Fill Connecting MacBook To Sony Bravia?

Apr 5, 2010

I have a MacBook 5,1 (late 2008) running Mac OS X 10.6.3 which I would like to connect to our Sony Bravia KDL-37S5500 to watch films. The Sony Bravia has a 1080p resolution (1920x1080) and my MacBook can output up to 1920x1200 (which it has been doing fine on my Dell monitor).

I am connecting it using the Apple mini-display-port to DVI converter, then a DVI cable and finally a DVI to HDMI converter which plugs straight into the TV.

It looks great except that it doesn't fill the screen entirely. It seems the resolution is correct (text looks normal, not stretched in any way), but when Overscan is turned on the image is slightly too big horizontal-wise. When Overscan is turned off I get black borders around the image (horizontal as well as vertical). We've tried different settings both on the TV and on the MacBook, but we can't get the right view.
