PowerPC :: Alternating Blue Screen With Grey Apple Screen / IBook Updated To 10.5.6

Dec 26, 2008

just installed 10.5.6 on their last gen. iBook.She left the iBook plugged in to the mains and came back to find that the iBook was alternating between the grey Apple screen and a light blue desktop screen where she could see the cursor. Sometimes it would also switch to a blue screen without a cursor.

I've tried holding shift during startup - no effect.
I've tried rebooting NVRAM - no effect.

PowerPC :: IBook G4 Won't Boot Beyond Blue Screen?

Dec 13, 2007

After installing an app ('Detour') I was asked to (or it was suggested that I should) restart my computer. I did so, and now my 1.33GHz iBook G4 turns on - but it will not go any further than a blank blue screen (after the initial grey screen that appears.) Thankfully, all my data is on an external drive. I keep my music and footage which I have shot on there amongst other things. I also have a backup on my external via Time Machine of all my data which I keep on the iBook drive, so nothing should be lost.

MacBook Pro :: Blue Screen Tint With OS X Yosemite 10.10.1

Dec 1, 2014

Who is having this issue, have you resolved it, and how did you do it:  Coinciding with Yosemite 10.10.1. my entire screen has begun to take on a blue tint.  This was not an issue with 10.10.0.  This is a MacBook Pro 6,2 with 4GB system RAM.  Graphics is with built-in Intel HD Graphics (and standard 288MB VRAM), and the standard NVidia GeForce GT330M graphics in PCI (and 256MB VRAM). 

The blue cast appears when using Microsoft Outlook 2011 (back to normal when it quits), Adobe Photoshop CS6 (sometimes yes, sometimes no), and intermittently when running Firefox or Safari (where the blue cast seems to coincide with invoking plug-ins).   All of these applications are up to date. 

Attempts to resolve this include: 

1) Downloaded and installed the latest software updates for Outlook, Photoshop, Firefox and Safari.  Made no difference. 

2) System Preferences -> Displays -> Color -> Calibrate.  I initially thought that the Color Sync profile had been corrupted, but the color was so 'off' that my attempt to manually recalibrate the screen could not go far enough.  So I abandoned this. 

3) System Preferences -> Energy Saver -> Automatic Graphics Switching.  Checking Automatic Graphics Switching works, but un-checking it and the blue cast comes back immediately.  

4) Running Disk Utilities -> Repair Permissions.  Didn't work.  

5) Cleared all caches using Onyx: Worked for 10 minutes, then blue came back 

6) Reset PRAM: Worked for two days, now the blue is back.

PowerPC :: IBook G4 - Blue Screen With Black Box Asking To Restart Computer

Feb 8, 2009

Everytime I turn it on I get a black box asking to shut down or restart the mac. I have managed to get it to turn on to powersave and managed to update the software. Thought it might help but just made it worse - it won't boot up at all now past an apple symbol with a little swirly thingy underneath (I apologise now for my lack of intelligence when it comes to computers/knowledge/names of things!) The first time I managed to boot the computer up it came up with the grey screen and a little folder flashing between a face and a question mark which I assume meant it couldn't find anything but that appears to have gone away now. I bought this computer new from Apple about 2 - 3 years ago and no disks were provided with it.

Dec 20, 2009

I was on the internet with my iBook G4 the system froze for over 10 minutes so i did a hard shutdown of the system (held the power button) When I attempted to turn the computer back on, the start up chime played then showed the grey apple screen, attempted to start up then went to a blue screen and now stays that way. I have attempted to change the PRAM and PMU to no avail, I also restarted in safe mode but all i got there was a different blue screen with no desktop icons.

Woke my C2D MBP from sleep to find a horrendous blue tint to the screen, googled it and found it is a fairly common problem but none of the solutions that seemed to work for everyone have worked for me. Tried the terminal command, tried turning a screensaver on and then off, tried ctrl-cmd-eject to restart the screen - nada.

PowerPC :: EMac Screen Developing Green Tint In The Bottom Right Corner Of Its Screen?

Oct 6, 2008

Our eMac seems to be developing a green tint in the bottom right hand corner of its screen. I've done some quick searching online and it seems that a few people have suggested a cold boot so it runs the degaussing process on a startup.

I left the eMac off for about an hour, unplugged. It did the degauss once it was plugged back in and "seems" to have removed nearly all of the green tint.

There are a few threads on various forums when I search on Google about this issue but they have no conclusive reasons why this is happening.

Could my eMac be developing a fault at all? I'm not too sure if anything magnetic has been placed on our table near the eMac so this may be the reason.

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp - XP Has Blue Tint?

Nov 10, 2008

I'm running Tiger on a 2.5ghz MacBook Pro (purchased april '08) and everything works perfectly and the screen colors/ brightness is perfect. In Windows XP however (running via Boot Camp), the screen has an annoying bluish tint that I can not get rid of. It is especially visible in lighter colors that should be gray or off-white. In the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics card control panel there is no obvious way to fix this problem. And it is not a gamma or brightness problem- because even after adjusting those, the bluish tint remains. Perhaps this is caused by a lack of a control in XP and/or the graphics card for the moniter's color temperature on the LED back-lit screen? When running XP through VMware fusion however the screen colors are dead-on.

Windows On Mac :: Blue Tint In Games In BootCamp

Aug 26, 2010

I have googled a lot about this, and found some fixes for the blue tint in Windows, but not in games. I know, you need to import OSX color profile etc, but even though I did this, the blue tint comes back as soon as I start a game. I saw people asking the same after they found the fix, but nobody replied. I found like 3 threads on google where nobody could answer how to get rid of that.

Problem Description:
When installing bootcamp, the screen isn't configured and makes everything look washed out and blue-ish. After fixing that by importing the color profile from OSX, it comes back when starting games. For example, Team Fortress 2 has nothing of its colorful graphics, its grey and undersaturated with a blue tint. Call of Duty 4s desert levels are practically unplayable against other people because you can't distinguish people from rocks, concrete walls, sand or metal, because everything looks grey, cold, dull and blue.

How can I get the profile to stay selected or whatever is causing this? The normal desktop looks fine with the color profile, but as soon as you start games it seems to get reset to the blue hell. I am using a 15 inch Macbook Pro from 2010 with the i7 option, and all latest OSX updates, although I doubt that matters. (Also Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit with latest updates).

IMac :: Blue Tint On It - Wakes Up Every Time

Apr 22, 2010

I have a 27" iMac purchased last January. Every time the computer wakes up, the display activates with normal coloring but after a second "shifts" into a different color profile with a blue'ish tint.

All software updates have been applied. I've reformatted the computer twice since the initial purchase. Problem persists.

I'm well aware of the yellow tinge problem with 27' iMacs, but based on my research of past posts the blue color shift has only been a problem with Macbooks.

Power Mac :: G5 Video Suddenly Has A Blue Tint

May 29, 2012

There was an electrical storm last night, and it may have fried some things for me, even though everything was on a surge protector.My G5 suddenly has no video. It booted, chimed, and had a white light on the front. I could hear emails coming in, etc. But NO video.I rebooted multiple times, zapped the PRam, and what I'd get is about a half a second of video (grey screen and Apple logo) before the monitor would pop back to black.I swapped in a different monitor I had and rebooted. I then had a normal reboot, but everything on my monitor is tinted blue.I took the old monitor and tried it out hooked up to my iMac and it's definitely dead.Have you ever heard of a video card failing, and everything turns blue?

Info:PowerMac, MacOS X (10.5)

Software :: Ibook G4 14' Freezes At Blue Screen

May 1, 2008

I've been reading the other post and searching for ways to fix this. My ibook froze a couple of days ago, so I pressed the power button to do a hard turn off and then restarted it. It hasn't made through the blue screen since. It seems to load all way and then stops at the end, but stays on the blue screen. The mouse is not frozen though, I noticed that was a problem for some people. So I've already tried a lot of the suggestions I could find. I've tried resetting the PMU,Start your computer holding the ⌘ and S key on your keyboard. When the black screen turns up and the "writing" stops, you will see something like

Software :: Ibook G4 Freezes At The Blue Screen?

May 9, 2008

I have an ibook g4. It freezes at the blue screen with the apply on it. The little circle goes around and around but nothing happens. I took it to an apple technician yesterday who told me the hard drive is toast so I should just throw it away. (Actually, he offered to take the keyboard.) When you do the fsck -fy it says that the hard drive was repaired sucessfully. Is it possible to have a hard drive that is bad and a message which says it has been repaired successfully? I don't mind having the hard drive replaced if that is what is wrong. I do not have any of the install discs any longer.

Software :: IBook G3 Not Start Up - Hangs Up At Blue Screen

Feb 10, 2006

My IBook G3 will not start up. I can get the gray apple screen with pinwheel and then after a really long time it will go to a blank blue screen. A couple times it went to the login screen instead but in the user id it says "other" and when I try to enter my username and password it won't recognize me. I am a college student and one of the Apple geniuses here did a check of my hard drive and it checked out okay. We were not able to get it to start up in safe mode; it seemed like it was starting in safe mode but then it came to the login screen and would not allow me to login with my usual information. I was able to start up in single user mode and run fsck which found a couple things and after another fsck it said everthing was fine. But, it still gets hung up at startup. When I try to boot from the OS X installation CD it doesn't seem to be booting up with it, it only goes to the screen to install OS X. According to the directions on the Apple support site when I insert the CD and start up holding down the "c" key it should start up and then I should be able to repair permissions but I can't get that far.

Software :: G4 IBook Won't Boot Past Blue Screen

Oct 4, 2009

I am trying to reformat an iBook for a friend. Everything was running, but, there was no chime on boot. I logged into the machine, and was checking files and folders when it locked up. It actyally locked up while trying to run Microsoft Word. It now boots to a grey screen the the little "spinning" thing, and then, instead of going to the login screen, it just turns blue. It will NOT boot into Safe Mode, it will NOT boot to the iBook Install CD, I just get the same blue screen using both methods. I used Command-Option-P-R without success. I booted to Open Firmware and typed reset-nvram without success. I don't know what else to try. I am copying her files right now by booting into Target Disk mode, but, once I get that done, I still won't be able to boot the install disc to get the system wiped and reinstalled. What else can I do to correct this?

PowerPC :: Load Up The Blue Screen With The Apple Logo, But Then The Screen Goes Black Or Flickers?

Feb 4, 2008

I am looking at purchasing an Ibook G4 but the description of the item includes this:"When you switch it on it begins to load up i.e. the blue screen with the Apple logo, but then the screen goes black or flickers. Said friend has kindly wiped the hard drive for me so now when you switch it on it makes the �opening� noise then you get a blue screen with alternating �?� and the Finder logo."

I have a feeling this may have been a temporary fault with the screen connector being loose and possibly damaged.But i assume the alternating "?" and the "finder logo" is simply a lack of OS?
