PowerPC :: 15" Display Pink On Warm Up?

Sep 5, 2006

I bought a used powerbook 15" Ti 1ghz, that upon powering on, or coming out of sleep mode for about 15-20 secs the screen has a pink tint. What might cause this? Is it going to die? Is it something I should repair, or live with? Do these screens warm up? it doesnt bother me to much if it doesnt get worse or stop working.

MacBook Pro :: Image Breaks Up Into Different Blocks On Display

Sep 24, 2010

So my screen is giving me issue, not so much the physical screen, but the actual image on my display. I took some screen shots. I assume its something related to the graphics card, but I'd love more info. The screen shots didn't end up working, they came out all black. But basically the image breaks up into a difference blocks, then reorganizes itself. You can see it repeats sections of the Window, but makes it impossible to try to work. Or sometimes part of a Safari Window will stay "on top" of any other Window.

MacBook Pro :: Display Will Not Work - No Image Transmission

Feb 25, 2010

I have a 15inch Macbook Pro from Late 2007; well it worked just fine yesterday, but as of this morning the display will not work! It makes the Chime when you power it up, but no screen display; you can adjust the volume buttons and hear that it is on and the volume can be adjusted. The screen brightener and dimmer does nothing, as well as the keys brightener and dimmer. The apple website said to reset the PRAM which I did and then if that didn't work to reset the SMC which I did and got no change in my problem. And now the part that boggles my mind is I have the cables to hook up the MBP to my TV so I figured I'd atleast be able see it on the TV if the display has crapped out but its doesn't transmit the image to there either. Is it possible I caught a virus that kills displaying ability?

MacBook :: Change Out The Inverter - It Showed Light For About A Second Then Went Blank?

Sep 1, 2009

Found a macbook on the cheap. It boots and works via external monitor but the screen has no backlight. I've tried a couple inverters that I know to be good. When I first tried to change out the inverter it showed light for about a second then went blank. Now nothing at all. What should I look into yet?

MacBook Pro :: Isight Camera - Used It For Skype And Noticed It Just Showed A Black Screen?

Oct 25, 2010

I have a 15'' 2010 macbook pro that I've only owned for about a month and a half. At first the isight camera worked great,I used it multiple times for photobooth. But a few weeks ago I tried to used it for skype and noticed it just showed a black screen. I thought maybe the problem was just with skype, but I started checking other programs and it's the same in all of them. The green light is on and it's recognized in system profiler, but the screen is black.

A few days after this happened, the problem seemed to fix itself, but then it went right back to the black screen 2 days later, and had been that way ever since.

I tried resetting the PRAM, but it didn't help. Is there anything else I can do, or is it time to give in and take my macbook to the Apple store?

MacBook Pro :: Hooked TV Up Through A Thunderbolt Adapter And HDMI Cable And It Showed A Gray Screen?

Apr 23, 2012

When it did show the screen saver the mouse arrow was on the tv and not on the computer and there were no icons to be found on the tv to click on. Right clicking would only bring up the screen for setting the background pictures.

PowerPC :: Never Get A N Image To Display

Oct 2, 2008

Being the IT guy at work, I've inherited a (currently) non-functioning Dual 2.0 GHz PowerMac G5. It' exhibiting some pretty odd symptoms. Let me explain:

First of all, the problems started with the machine coming on (fans audible, Apple chime 'chimes'), but nothing was displayed on the
screen. This led me to believe if might be a video card issue, so we ordered a replacement from OWC and no dice. After trying this, I happened to leave the machine on unintentionally for a while, and after about 5 minutes, the fans ramped up to full speed, very loudly. Since we were in a bit of a time crunch (and it was out of warranty) we gave up on it, and purchased our graphics designer a new Mac Pro.

With a bit of googling, I determined that this sound a bit like a dead PRAM battery. So once again, off to OWC I went and purchased a replacement. I get it setup at home last night, and still no dice. If fires up just fine and chimes, but no image on the screen. And here's where it gets weird...

I powered the machine down, and took the cover off to check the PRAM battery again, thinking I may have inadvertently put it in backwards. It looked fine (fits both ways, BTW, so I'm still not 100% sure I have it in right), so I powered the machine backup--but without putting the cover on accidentally. The red light on the mobo came on indicating the cover was off, but I figured I'd wait to see what would happen first. Still nothing on the screen, so I popped the plastic shield in and latched the side cover, and BOOM! Wouldn't you know, it displays an image! I can see a folder icon with the Finder icon on it.

This is 100% reproducible every single time. If I turn it on with the cover ON, I can never get an image to display. However, if I remove the cover and plastic shield, fire it up, then replace the shield and cover, I always get the folder with Finder icon.This is quite perplexing. I should also note that I had my retail Leopard install disc in the drive the whole time, hoping to boot to the DVD if I got an image. It obviously wasn't automatically booting from the DVD, but instead would always display the Finder icon.

Being a post-PowerPC Mac convert, I'm not really sure how to proceed.I'm still not really convinced that there is an underlying hardware issue still, but I suppose it's a possibility.

Mac Mini :: Display To LCD - Bad Image Quality

Sep 27, 2010

I have a quick question regarding the image quality when connecting my Mac Mini to my Samsung Monitor 24'' monitor. I am connecting it through a HDMI -> DVI adapter and connecting it through the DVI on my monitor. Although it does display the image, the colour look off, it doesn't look sharp or high definition at all. I checked the resolution and it shows up as 1920 x 1080, which should be very good, but the resolution doesn't look good at all. I am wondering if this is because I am using a 24inch monitor and whether I should try getting a HDMI cord to connect HDMI to HDMI from the Mac Mini to the monitor, or get a HDMI > VGA adapter instead, or maybe buy a better monitor?

PowerPC :: Display - Creating New Image On IBook

Nov 2, 2006

I am creating a new image for some old iBooks that will be used in a school. To run a specific program I need to have OS 9.2 installed because it won't work any other way(even through the simulator). I have OS 10.2 installed on the master image iBook computer and have installed OS 9.2 through the restore disks. I can load up to both OS X and OS 9.2 but OS 9.2 does not take up the entire screen. It's contained within a small box in the middle of the screen.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Display Image In Html Mail?

Apr 30, 2012

I was recently sent an email that used an HTML stationery wih several photos embedded in it. The email opens normally, but all of the images are icons, displaying file name and size.  If I click the icon, the image opens correcly in a separate window.   

I am running OS X 10.7.3 and Mail 5.2 (1257) and have checked "display remote images in html email" in preferences.  A friend with identical software versions receives the same email and the photos are visible in the original email.

MacBook Pro :: Screen Goes Pink By Itself?

Mar 19, 2012

My late 2009 Macbook Pro started to have screen issues a couple weeks ago. Basically, the screen just goes pink as in the picture below. The laptop came with a dual GPU (GeForce 9400M & GeForce 9600M GT) and switching between them does not resolve the problem. I also tried re-calibrating the screen display, but to no avail. I tried googling the issue but nothing useful came out of that. I've also tried running the apple hardware test but it said everything is fine. 

This issue has come out of nowhere (I haven't spilled anything on my laptop, nor have I dropped it...). At first, it appeared to go pink randomly, and go back to normal randomly. But now, it remains pink all the time. I would have taken it to an Apple Store if I could, unfortunately there's no such thing as an Apple Store in my country.So now I'm stuck with this annoying pink screen

PowerPC :: IMac G4/17 - Sunflower - LCD Display Is Dark - No Image

Jul 30, 2007

I replaced my iMac G4/800 17" hard drive that was failing (S.M.A.R.T. status) tonight. Textbook operation, following directions from No problems at all. I pre-built the drive with Tiger 4.10 in an external case (using the iMac as host) and transferred everything to the drive and tested. I booted off the external drive for a few days for testing. Again, no problems.

I got the iMac back together and booted up. Everything sounds fine but the monitor is black. It's as if there's no power to it or perhaps the lamps were just out.

When I press the power key for 1-2 seconds, the mac goes to sleep and the white Sleep Light on the front of the monitor comes on, so the monitor would appear to be getting power.

The Mac is working, evidently, as the chime for new mail sounded and the new drive chirps a little (very quiet though, btw).

I do NOT have a second monitor to hook to the VGA port, unfortunately.

On one reboot there was a sine-wave 'bong' sound, but the Mac proceeded to boot. I shut down again after that, took the housing apart and checked for trouble. Nothing. The video cable and connector is fine. There are no cables pinched or cut that I can see. And I did ever-so-carefully align the two halves when reassembling.

On the third boot I got the normal Mac chime (no bong/gong) and it booted fine - with no video.

One side note that I expect to be un-related: I left the HD jumper in cable-select mode, as the drive that was in there was also set on cable select (was a Western Digital 250GB drive; the new drive is a Maxtor).

What's wrong with this iMac monitor?

Applications :: Yahoo Messenger Display Image Not Working?

Nov 11, 2009

MacBook Pro OS X 10.4.11

I'm using Yahoo Messenger for Mac version 3.0 beta and recently my display images have stopped displaying when logged in or when I open a chat window.

When not logged in and I am selecting a user the display images show, but they go out as soon as I login to any name. When I go to the window to set my browser image, the image field displays blank even after I try reloading the image. I have trashed my Preferences and that doesn't work.

Applications :: MS Word On Mac - Logo Image Often Display As Empty Box

Jan 28, 2010

I use MS Word on a Mac. In documents, sometimes a .doc file sent with a logo image above text will display the text, but the logo displays only as a border around an empty box. Yet when I send it to anyone else, the logo I can't see appears in the file for them. In some .doc files, I will be able to see different logo images fine. But about half the time, logo images will only display as an empty box.

Windows On Mac :: External Display - Image Not Filling Entire Screen?

Dec 24, 2009

I just bought a tv to use as a external monitor for my mac however when i boot into windows 7 the resolution (1080p) is fine but its not filling the screen completely, there is 1 inch of black on the top and bottom and about 1.5 inches of black on the left and right sides. it does not do this when i am booted into osx.

i think this could be because of how hdtv's are made and the resolution isn't exact (usually a little bit greater) so windows isn't "stretching" the image to fill the screen. i think osx does it automatically but windows doesn't. if this is the problem how do i get windows to stretch the image? i tried switching the screen mode on my tv's remote but that didn't work.

I am having problems with Preview and Snow Leopard. I can use Quick View to view jpeg files, but when I open them with preview. It does not display the correct image. It just displays a gray block. The only way to resolves this is to delete the preview prefernce files, and then it works. But after a couple of restarts it goes back to not displaying the correct image.

MacBook Pro :: Pink Lines After Clicking On A Link

May 16, 2012

I clicked on a link and received pink lines all over my screen, in the window, the desktop, everywhere.  I rebooted the computer and it was all gone so I went back to the link, clicked on it, and pink lines appeared everywhere again.  So I took screen shots of the open window with pink lines in it, closed the window and took a screen shot of the desktop that had pink lines all over it.  I rebooted the computer all the pink lines were gone so I opened the screen shots and none of the pink lines were in the screen shots either.  So I went back to the same link once again and I got pink lines everywhere.

MacBook Pro :: Frozen With Pink And Green Pixels

Aug 25, 2014

I have a late 2008 version of the 17" MacBook Pro. I've been using it today and it's been completely fine. that was up until I was uploading my recent holiday photos to iPhoto. I left it to upload and came to check on it after 5 minutes. I found the program had frozen and pink and green pixels were spotted all over the screen. 

I turned the laptop off by the power button. When I started her up again I found the white screen with the pink and green pixels everywhere and apple logo appear. It starting booting and then just stopped. the screen froze and nothing was working. I've tried booting up in safe mode and again it just freezes. I've included a photo I've taken if the frozen screen.

MacBook Pro :: Frozen Screen With Pink/Blue Lines?

Sep 3, 2010

My almost 3 year old MBP shows a full screen of artifacts like horizontal lines with blue and pink boxes. It did it while simply browsing the web. It had a message in the center of the screen that said to push the power button to power off in several languages.

I powered off the computer. Tried to restart it and on the start up screen the Apple appears in the center of the screen with the same pink and blue boxes in it and the spinning symbol below is stuck and the computer will not start up.

Any ideas on what my problem is? I have about 2 months of Apple Care left.

MacBook Pro :: Frozen Screen With Pink And Green Pixels

Aug 27, 2014

I have an early 2008 version of the 17" MacBook Pro. During the process of uploading photos to iPhoto, the screen froze and pink and green pixels appeared. I shut down by the off button and upon on turning it back on found the screen as shown below. The apple appears and then the clock spins for a moment then freezes. I cannot get any further. 

I've tried booting in Safe Mode and other options I've read when trying to boot but to no avail. 

Someone said I need to run the AHT but as this was purchased from a friend, I don't have the installation CD's. I've found a DMG file of the AHT but am completely at a loss as to what to do with this.

MacBook Pro :: Pink And Green Vertical Pixel Columns On Screen?

I have twice performed the "PRAM Re-set" with Command-Option-P-R depressed with pwer on and that has worked. But tonight it came back and I had to do it a third time. Is this a potential or probable power/battery problem? I hope someone here is familiar with this!
