IMac :: Chip In Glass Behind Screen - What If They Only Replace The Glass But Get Dust?

Aug 11, 2010

there is a small chip behind the glass of my 27" imac. It's about the size of a small crumb or the eye of a small needle. It's hard to see, but it's definitely there. Today is my last day to get the imac replaced or repaired. I have a feeling if I bring it in that they will see there's no reason to swap out the entire imac, and if there is I would have to wait awhile because it's a custom high end one so they don't have the specsI'm worried if they swap the glass that it's just some 19 year old kid that does it and he won't be careful with the screen and will get dust, finger prints, etc. on the glass making it worse.

MacBook Pro :: Screen Got Dust Or Whatever Behind Glass?

Oct 12, 2009

Well when I turn my screen off then I get a clearly visible 'thing' on my screen. The reason why I call it a 'thing' is because I have no idea what it is and how it got there. Can't I be something 'pitched' my screen and the back ledscreen cracked? Because I don't think dust can get behind the glass, both the behind screen and the glass have this "thing". It's luckily not big, may be 2 mm2. I got applecare so I guess apple will fix this for me? right? But it is kinda silly that ill have to lose my macbook for 3 weeks just for that little thing, but I'll have to because I can't clean it myself I guess.

MacBook Pro :: Dust Particle Under Glass Of Screen

Aug 2, 2010

So I bought a Macbook Pro 15" i5 at the weekend and it arrived this morning. This is my first ever Mac, but I followed the battery calib etc., before playing. I turned it on, set everything up and found something that stood out like a sore thumb on the screen (and I'm always on white background forums/websites). At first I thought it was a dead/stuck pixel, called Apple and they told me to take it to an authorised dealer to do some tests on it. However, I turned the screen off and looked, and it's definitely a spec of dust under the glass! This is my first Mac and this is not a good experience so far. What were Apple's QC unit doing? Shall I take it to the AD to have a look at it, and what do you think they will do? Or shall I ring Apple again in the morning? It's currently 11:15pm here in UK. I bought it under Higher Education discount, so I guess if i return it for a refund, I won't be able to buy any other Pro?

MacBook Pro :: Little Piece Of White Dust Behind Glass

Aug 13, 2010

So I was cleaning off my new Macbook Pro (a month old) the other day and noticed one spot wouldn't clean, I figured it may have been something stuck on there so I tried a little harder with no luck. I must of missed it, but there's a little piece of white dust (about 1px or so in size) behind the glass . I'm going to try to ignore it, but it's a little hard when you're as OCD about your electronics as I am, whenever I turn on my Mac it seems that my eyes drift over there. It isn't even that bad in my opinion, when I sit at a normal distance it's nearly unnoticeable, it's only when I look for it that I can see it.

IMac :: Tiny Bug Behind Glass Screen?

May 14, 2009

I was watching a movie today, and noticed a dot on the screen. I scrubbed it hardcore, and it didn't go away. I freaked out because it might be a stuck pixel. After close observation, there are tiny extensions (probably its feet) around the 1-2 pixel size bug. I've taken a screen capture, but the bug is not displayed on it. Is it actually a bug? Should I take the glass off and exterminate the thing?

IMac :: 21.5" Gap In Glass - Screen?

Nov 21, 2009

I purchased an iMac 21.5" recently and unfortunately it came with a dead pixel(black) and I can see some hot pixels, also. Can these hot pixels be dust though?

In top-middle part of the screen(where iSight is located) the glass that protects the screen actually has a gap. I mean, in the right and left parts the glass seem to be more stuck than in the middle part.

Actually I can even put my nail inside the glass and I suppose, it can be removed if a lot of pressure is applied. Are all iMacs supposed to be like that?
Maybe dust gets through there so that's why I see these "hot" pixels.

Do not tell me to remove the frame and clean it up, it's one day old. I just want to know if it is supposed to have that small gap on the top center part.

IMac :: There's An Ant Stuck B/w The Glass And Screen On My 27"?

Jun 17, 2010

I wish I could take a picture of it, but every picture that I've taken so far has developed into a blurry hue. At, first, I thought the screen was just dirty, until upon closer examination did I discover that this little ******* is an ant. It's stuck between the glass and actual monitor directly below the Safari icon in the dock that I have left at the bottom of the screen. I have a feeling that it crawled in through the speakers on the bottom of the monitor, next to where the ram modules sit. I hope it's not planning to nest and start an entire colony on my i7 8GB iMac! That would suck.

IMac :: Matt Screen Film Or Glass Removal

Jun 18, 2010

I've read quite a lot about the glossy screens on iMacs and advice offered has been to use a 3m matt film product or remove the glass from the front. Is anyone actually using either of those 2 methods successfully with their iMac? The 3m matt film sounds like it might be awkward to fit without airbubbles etc and might affect sharpness/colour etc Removing the glass from the front could make the screen vulnerable when using things like calibrator devices that need to sit on the screen to work, I don't care what it looks like BTW

Power and features wise the i7 iMac is all the computer I need but need a matt screen is no good for me. I will splurge on a macpro and monitor but its just more than I need and so would prefer the saving

IMac :: IMac Screen MELTING Underneath Glass?

Feb 4, 2010

This may seem odd, but I think my iMac is melting. I started to clean my iMac with a simple cleaning cloth then i realized spots on the screen. The aren't really visible when the screen is on, but you can still kind of see them. Not only that, the quality of the images on my screen seems to be deteriorating. It is only visible under light. I have attached some photos, but i wanted to know if anyones iMac has done this before(regardless of size, but post it in case), and if apple will fix it?

Jan 9, 2011

this is not super great.My iMac is maybe 14 months old, left it turned on (sleep mode) for a day and forgot it was turned on, it's that quiet and that's a good thing.The bad thing, I now have condensation behind the glass on the iMac panel.It's mostly in the right and left upper areas of the panel. How did this happen?!I have Applecare, what am I likely to expect from Apple? Is this a design problem?

IMac :: Using System Without Glass Display?

Aug 27, 2007

I thought I won't buy a new imac, because of the glossy glassdisplay. And, yes, I took a look at the imac at a gravis-store. I have seen it in real life and I don't like it.BUT: As I have read, it is easy to remove the glass, so my question is: Has anybody already done this and is working now with a glassless imac? What are your impressions? Do you see any drawbacks (apart from fact, that it will look a little bit nerdy

IMac :: Who Has Taken The Glass Off The New 27 Inch System?

Oct 29, 2009

I am thinking of buying the base 27 inch iMac and upgrading the hard drive myself. I read few threads here of people doing it but I am concerned about breaking the glass while lifting it off. I am somewhat handy having replaced the hard drive several times on my white iMac which is no picnic. Any thoughts on this from people who have taken off the glass on the new mac or even the older 24 inch display glass?

If so, is their a fix or is this something Apple should take care of?

MacBook Air :: Is The Screen Itself Plastic Or Glass And Does It Scratch Easily

Nov 3, 2010

I was thinking about possibly selling my MacBook Pro and purchasing the 11.6-inch Air because I'm a college student who doesn't need much more than word processing, web browsing, iTunes, and portability. But I hear that the Airs don't have the glass covering of the Pro... Is the screen itself plastic or glass and does it scratch easily?

IMac :: Glass Panel Bent At Bottom?

Jul 5, 2010

I took my iMac panel off to clean and when I put it back I noticed as you run your finger from the bottom of the panel left to right or right to left, the glass begins to get thicker and eventually overlap just barely the metal in the middle. I can't remember if it was like this or not before, so I am wondering is this bent? And if so what should I do?

MacBook Pro :: Increasing Screen Brightness By Removing Glass Layer

Apr 5, 2010

I have a Macbook Air and the new 13" macbook pro. I see that the Macbook Air is much brighter than the 13" macbook pro (under the same ambient lighting, both set to maximum brightness). I was told the reason for this difference is because of the lack of the glass layer on the Air. Is that really true ? If so, can you please let me know if I'd be able to get the same brightness I get on the Air on the Pro also by just removing the glass layer on my 13" macbook pro. TechRestore offers such a service for $134, which is simply a subset of their service for matte replacement (I don't want the matte replacement as I like the glossy screen). But since such a service would void my warranty and return policy, I want to be really sure before getting it done with them. I'd greatly appreciate any inputs/advice.

MacBook Pro :: 2011 Screen Scratch Resistant Corning Gorilla Glass?

May 1, 2012

i just had the unfortunate incident of someone touching my screen with an object. i dont think it scratched but it led me to researching if the glass is scratch resistant and trying to learn more about the glass itself. ive read that it is gorilla glass which i think is very scratch resistant but that i believe is not confirmed.   

can anyone shed light on the LCD glass they use and if it is able to withstand minor bumps/nicks/taps/ from objects like pen-caps, or a paper clip hitting it etc etc??im looking for specific info like its actual properties, makeup and scratch threshold.

IMac :: New 24" IMac Weight - Tempered Glass Desk?

Sep 14, 2009

I just placed an order for the 24" iMac. Apple lists the weight of this machine as 25 lbs. I intend for it to be my primary desktop machine, claiming its residence atop my computer desk which is made of 8mm-thick tempered glass and aluminum framing.My only concern is that 25 lbs might be too heavy for the glass. Unfortunately I cannot find a maximum load specification for the desk anywhere. If I can find the manufacturer's number I'll certainly call them but I can't find that either. So, anyone here have a similar setup and care to comment? Coming home and finding shattered glass and 2 grand of mangled hardware wouldn't make for a happy time!

IMac :: IMac 27" Condensation - Glass Options?

Dec 25, 2009

I just received my new iMac and when I booted it today I had a 4 x 4 inch square condensation patch on the screen just below the webcam. It took 20 minutes to disappear. As the sun was shining through the window I also noticed marks on the screen.First of all I thought they were on the glass and so I wiped the screen with the cleaning cloth, but these are marks are under the glass. Worse of all I also have 4 stuck pixels which are down the centre of the screen. Surely this should be replaced.
