MacBook Pro :: Retina - Defective Screen (white Pressure Mark)?

Jul 2, 2012

After waiting 3-4 weeks I was so excited to finally receive my retina macbook pro today. To my dissapointment as soon as I turned it on this glaring white light/cloudy mark behind the screen stabbed me in the heart. So dissapointing to wait so long just to get a defective unit. 

I called AppleCare and they said I could either ship it back for a refund, or I could take it into the apple store for a refund. Apple store is only 30 minutes away so instead of putting any trust in fedex I decided to just go return it in person. 

So now I'm waiting up to five days for the money to be refunded so I can order again and wait ANOTHER 3-4 weeks to receive a unit because I upgraded the base model to 16GB of ram, and it may have the same exact problem when it arrives... who even know...  

I saw on macrumors a few others have had this issue so I'm not alone, but I do hate that I was unlucky this time around.  [URL]

Defective Screen Or Graphics Card On New Macbook Pro Retina?

Jun 18, 2012

I just got my macbook pro retina 2.6 with 16 gigs of ram. It was working great for the first 40 minutes then on the left side of the screen two inches went black, then the screen went fuzzy then cleared up. I reinstalled the OS just to be on the safe side and sure enough it happened again. Called support and they told me DOA, however they can't do anything because apple support systems are down! Check out the photos of my screen. It will clear up if I don't use it for a few minutes which makes me think it is the graphics card. Hope this isn't a displaygate for apple all this money and I get a DOA - whatever happened to QA?

MacBook :: White Start Up Screen With Blinking Documents Folder Symbol With Question Mark

Apr 11, 2012

Just came back from the Genius Bar at Apple Amsterdam. Both iTunes and iPhoto had problems launching and libraries were not loading. Ruled out hardware problems so they tried installing OS Snow Leopard over my 10.5.8 in a way to keep my documents safe. All went well until halfway it said it couldn't install succesfully. Made a new appointment for in 3 days from now. They would then overwrite the current OS with the new one so i should go home and make sure to back up all my files in the meantime. Problem is that when i came home and started my laptop i got a blank/white screen with a blinking documents folder symbol with a question mark in it! Does anybody know what it means and will i be able to ever make a back up of my documents?

Intel Mac :: Most Of The Time When Turn Computer On Get The White Screen And Question Mark?

Mar 9, 2012

Most of the time when I turn on the Mac I get the white screen and question mark appear.  Sometimes it will turn on and work. But often the coloured spinning wheel starts up especially after trying to use iphoto it freezes and a couple of times the screen has then gone black.  The computer seemed pretty warm yesterday when this happened.

MacBook :: Logo Putting Pressure On Screen?

Mar 30, 2010

I would of searched for this question first but i am pretty unsure in what to google or mroogle for lol.basically this very annoying spot the shape of the stalk of the apple logo has appeared on my macbook. I had a look and the start in the aluminium on my macbook has actually started to work its way in. I KNOW this is no fault of my own as the laptop has not been out the house since i got it. its always on the desk or sometimes, in its case.

its not that bad tbh, but extremely annoying. You can only see it on a white screen or something light. For example [URL]so you do notice it alot. Its like a glowing section of the screen, brighter than the rest. no pixels are dead.what should i do. Its 1 week out of warranty with PCWorld, so they won't repair it.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Leave Traces On Screen Surface / Having High Pressure On Computer

Dec 16, 2010

I'm planning to buy a 17" matt MBP 2010. So far I've used a few laptops which I carry in a backpack (Lowepro Computekker Plus AW) together with cameras and lenses. Each one but the last one - Lenovo Thinkpad - had the same problem; beacause there is high pressure on the computer (glass weights over 12kgs), the keyboard keys left traces on he screen surface - not just dust - the plastic from keys was on the screen for good. The Lenovo is the firsts one not affected by that.

Can anyone who uses this MBP 17" matt 2010 (and treats it as bad as me) tell me how it looks in this case?

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?

MacBook Pro :: Retina Has Moving Dead Pixel (white)?

Jun 22, 2012

I recently purchased a MacBook Pro w/Retina and have an annoying issue that comes up from time to time. Once in a while a bright white pixel will appear in the middle of the screen. It stays put while it is there and I can drag screens around and nothing changes but then suddenly it will go away. After awhile it will popup in a new location and the same thing will happen. Is it an issue with my screen?

MacBook :: Hard Drive Died - Gray Folder And White Question Mark?

Jul 2, 2009

I think the hard drive in my Macbook (2007 Model) has died. My macbook froze and when I restarted I can hear an usual clicking noise and I only get a white screen with a grey folder icon and white question mark inside. Fortunately, I use super dooper to create a bootable clone of my hard drive as a back up. When I attach this and hold down the apple key I boot straight into the clone and the computer runs fine from the external hard drive. If I go to disk utility my computer can not locate the internal hard drive, nor if I go t sysyem prefs-startup disk. Should I assume its dead or could it be a connection problem. I don't have applecare so I'm willing to buy a new hard drive and swap it myself. However, this is making the assumption the hard drive is the culprit. Can anyone else diagnose this problem from the desrcitpion before I shell out on a new hard drive?

MacBook Pro :: Faint Mark Of Light Color On Black Screen / Nothing Visible When Screen Is Off

Jan 4, 2010

I have a problem with my screen - when there is something black on, I can see a faint mark of a lighter colour. I have tried to take a picture, please excuse the poor quality. There is nothing visible when the screen is off, even under close examination. Is it less visible when lighter things are on the screen, and invisible when the screen is white.

No drops or liquid spills. Will this go away on it's own? Any fixes?

Mac Pro :: Front Row Screen Is Just White / Video Picture Is Pure White

Jun 12, 2010

When I go to front row, all my video content plays sound, but the picture is just a pure white screen (shows the slider to move chapters, etc., but the screen is just white).

Any ideas for solutions? I did google searches, etc., to no avail. I have a MP (not early 08), which I upgraded the graphics card to a 2600XT, and it's running Leopard.

MacBook Pro :: 2012 Retina Screen Getting Scrambled?

Sep 4, 2014

I've been using my MacBook Pro 2012 Retina with an external monitor lately with the lid closed. Today I tried open the lid without having the external monitor connected and that worked fine for a few minutes. But then the screen got "scrambled".... It's hard to explain but it seems that some pixels are dragged vertically. See attached image. Doesn't seem to stop doing this. If I restart the computer it might look OK for a few seconds, but then it will start looking like this again. If I shut down the computer and wait a while until I turn it back on, it will stay OK longer, but will eventually start getting "scrambled" again. 

Just as I was writing this question, using my external monitor, the scramble effect stopped and my MacBook screen returned to normal. Not sure how long it's going to last and I would still like to know more about this. 

My MacBook is also really hot right above the F3-F7 keys.

MacBook Pro :: How Do Softwares That Aren't Retina Compatible Look On Retina Display

Jun 12, 2012

How do software that aren't retina compatible yet look on the MBP Retina Display? From my own experience as a developer when using regular sized images and resolutions on the iPhone 4, they come out as blurry. I was thinking perhaps the same thing will occur if the software isn't retina compatible? I e 2x in GUI size and scaled down?
