MacBook :: (Late 2007) Back Light Only Works At Certain Angles?

Apr 15, 2010

My 2.2GHz MacBook (3,1) has had an issue for some time now. At first the backlight would flicker as you moved the display from closed to open. The backlight stayed lit through most of the travel. It's gotten progressively worse lately where it will only stay lit at certain angles, and is otherwise black (you can still see the display in sunlight though). Right now it'll only stay lit if I open it very slowly and stop once it lights up.

As I don't have a ton on money to spend, I don't want to just throw parts at it. What could be the issue? Since when it lights up it lights up full brightness and stays lit, I don't think it's an inverter issue. Could it be the inverter board cable?

MacBook Pro :: Strange Back Light Options With 2010 13" MBP

Aug 2, 2010

I finally purchased my dream laptop a month ago and it has been great so far until I ran into this strange issue. It seems when the backlight it set to below 50% and either my hands are on the side/bottom or I'm slightly moving or tilting the laptop the backlight goes into this weird super-bright state for a few seconds. When this happenes there are even brighter circle shapes near the dock area. Problem is this only happens sometimes and I cant seem to replicate it with a certain action. I'm not sure what will happen when I take it into the store. If anyone can shed any light onto similar problem

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Doesn't Respond - Back Light Still On?

Jan 2, 2011

So a friend spilled some liquids on his new macbook pro 13 5,5.Unibody The keyboard no longer worked, the hd was fried, so he gave it to me and switched to PC's . I replaced the HD, and connected an external keyboard.

Luckily nothing else was effected and it powered up. What I find strange is that the back light still works although NONE of the keys do. The power button and the trackpad still work as well.

I have accepted that I have to purchase a costly top case, but could i not just replace the keys?

MacBook Pro :: Late 2010 Not Starting Up?

May 26, 2012

I'm so worried. I turned off my MBP as usual yesterday and when I tried to turned it on today I get a white screen with the Apple Sign and a loading bar which never ends up loading. Nothing like this has ever happened and I haven't made any hardware or software modifications on my MBP. I thought the days of my computer crashing were behind once I switched to Apple. Ugh I don't/can't afford to lose all my files. I also tried booting from the OS X disk and trying to repair the disk but it tells me it can't be done.

MacBook Air :: Black Screen On Late 2010?

Jun 10, 2012

After try to get it out of sleep mode the screen stayed black

Tryed to turn it on several times (magsafe or batery)

Reset the PRAM

Reset the SMC

Tryed Safe Mode 

Tryed everything I've found about it but the screen is still black. The mac is on, can hear the fan and the lion start cause when I press a key I can hear a "bump" 

Is that a know issue? Does apple offer an extra warranty period on this issue because it seems to be a comon issue on this machine.

MacBook Air :: Late 2010 Suddenly Crashes And Will Not Stay On?

Nov 30, 2014

I returned from a trip during which I used my MacBook Air (Late 2010) constantly.  Upon leaving the hotel I closed the computer and put it into my carrier and did not open it until arriving at home later that day.  There was moisture on the keyboard and screen at the corresponding position in an area about the size of a 50¢ piece,  I cleaned that up and turned the machine on and it booted up and then created. Several times it would turn off and on a few times without any input from me. At times it will boot up like all is well but with any keystroke it crashes to a black screen.  If I had to guess, I'd say the HD is toast.  It was replaced under warranty once already. The moisture is a complete mystery.

MacBook Air :: Upgrade Hard Drive In Late 2010 Model?

Jun 22, 2012

I have a late 2010 Macbook Air, 13 inch, with the 126 gb hard drive. I was curious if there was a way to upgrade the hard drive at all. I know this isn't "officially" suported, but I've seen some compines online that claim to do it.

I haven't priced out the SSD drives or anything, so I'm not even sure if it's cost effective to upgrade.

MacBook Air :: Cannot Install Windows 8 Consumer Preview On 11" (Late 2010)

Mar 10, 2012

I'm trying to install Windows 8 Consumer Preview on my MacBook Air 11" (Late 2010 model) via Boot Camp assistant. I've hacked the Info.plist of the Boot Camp Assistant to allow it to create a bootable USB installer drive. After successfully creating the USB, the laptop proceeds to reboot itself but it never loads up the Windows installer. However, if I restart it while holding Option, and selecting EFI boot, the installer loads up. However, once it loads, I cannot install Windows 8 Consumer Preview to the Boot Camp partition because of this error: "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks. Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. WIndows must be installed to a partition formatted as NTFS. Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

MacBook Pro :: 2010 High Resolution Anti - Glare Screen Light Leak?

May 8, 2010

My friend just got his CTO MBP15 i7 anti-glare hi-res and we compared it to my old Core Duo MBP15 screen. Do you think there is light leak in the new machine? It reminds me the memory of "Apple Lottery". Now I am nervous since I am going to order one.

Left: 2010 MBP15 i7 hi-res anti-glare 9CB7
Right: 2006 MBP15 Core Duo anti-glare 9C56

The new one is brighter so I adjust the brightness for fair comparison. Should I tell my friend to replace it? I wonder if other ones have the same issue.

IMac :: 27" I5 (late 2010) RAM Upgrade?

Nov 14, 2010

I've got a 27" imac i5, with 4 RAM slots. I do actually have 2x2Gb installed, but that's not enough to run windows 7 smoothly with Parallels.

I would like to upgrade the RAM. Can I buy 1x4Gb now, and add another 1x4Gb later? (short on money at the moment...)

The two original modules are installed in BANK 0/DIMM0 and BANK 1/DIMM0. Should I install the new module in any free slot available?

Another question: is this memory fine?

PATRIOT SODIMM DDR3 4GB(1X4GB)1333Mhz MacCompliant

I read some topics about ram upgrade, but it's not clear wether you can add one single module...melagodo

MacBook Pro :: Back Light Only After Using Thunderbolt Display?

May 13, 2012

I have a new 2012 Macbook pro 17 and a 27 inch thunderbolt display. 

The Macbook was working great. Then I connected it to the thunderbolt display and did clamshell mode. That worked well too. But.. then I powered down the macbook, disconnected the thunderbolt dislplay and tried to boot back up again. The mac book powers on, the back light comes on, I hear the chime then that is it. The back light stays on nothing else happens. Resetting the PRAM can not be done. Any of the boot options are ignored. It is like the keyboard is non resposive. I tried all the reset and boot  combinations available but nothing works.  

The light on the front of the macbook comes on then goes dim. The apple logo on the lid stays lit, and if I close the lid, the apple logo goes dim and the light on the front lights up. Weird, it is almost like it goes to sleep when it turns on. I tried conntecting the thunderbolt again but no joy. I am really disappointed. This is less than a month old and its already going in for repair. It should be replaced.  

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), I am disapoint.
