IMac :: Screen Is Half Light/half Dark - How To Fix It

Oct 31, 2008

I started up iTunes, checked my email, and looked up to see the top half of my display drop about 15 shades darker than the bottom half! I called Apple Care who told me they had never heard of something like this before and advised me to call the nearest Apple Store. I did, and like Apple Care, they had never heard of this happening.

Intel Mac :: Left Half Of The Screen Would Flick And Become Darker Than The Lower Half?

Jun 21, 2012

At the beginning of last year I bought a 3.2GHz 27" iMac. About a month ago I noticed that, within about 5 minutes of starting my computer back up from sleep the left half of the screen would flick and become darker than the lower half (about 4 clicks of the light button lower). Sometimes the screen will flick to become even darker than this (but usually it returns to the 4 clicks darker after a short while), and sometimes it returns to normal only to go darker again.

iMac (27-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.7.3)

MacBook Pro :: Bottom Half Of My Screen Go Black And Most Of The Top Half Flicker?

Jun 23, 2010

I have a MacBook Pro with the 9600gt in it. Since updating to 10.6.4 this morning 2 times while playing java games i've had the bottom half of my screen go black and most of the top half flicker. I've had to hold in the power button and reset both times. The second time I closed the screen and reopened it, the screen was black but no mouse and nothing moved.

Any advice? Would this be something to do with my graphics card or possibly some error in 10.6.4?Edit:: This is software related to 10.6.4 update and only happens when I open up a java game in a browser.

IMac :: IMac Display Half Dark?

Nov 3, 2008

Allright, I have a 24" iMac. 3.06 Core Duo 2 4GB RAM etc etc.

Just now, as I was innocently talking to a friend using iChat, the top of my screen flickered once or twice and then went dark. I am typing on it now, so it is not unreadable, it just looks like the back lighting has gone off on the top half. The middle is relatively light (bleedover from bottom back light?). I have tried playing with the hinge to no avail. After I reset the computer, cleared pram-nothing. Zippo. I got the top to stay lit for about a half second after reset, but it then flicked off again. Do I need to load up my iMac and drag my ass to the Apple Store (it really is quite a task to drive there)?Here is a horrible cell phone picture (and no, the screen IS dark, that's not a shadow.):

I have a 17" MacBook Pro 2.16Ghz Core Duo with 10.6.2. I have an intermittent issue where half of the screen will go whitish with lines. A picture of my screen experiencing this is hosted at [URL]To return the screen to normal I simply have to close the screen and open it again.Unfortunately my AppleCare has expired, and my Apple tech is not sure of the cause. Any thoughts as to whether this is the screen, cable, or logic board.If it turns out to be the logic board, will the Core 2 Duo board fit into this case? If I have to replace the board anyway

MacBook Pro :: Half Of MPB Screen Blanking Out With Vertical Lines

Nov 7, 2009

I have a late 2007 2.2ghz MBP. It seems that the video cable is failing, as I often open it up from sleep and get only half an image on the screen. Image capture does not capture this, so I know that it is hardware related. It does not happen on my external monitor.

It is getting more frequent, and has been going on for about a month, The warranty expired in late September (lucky me!)

MacBook :: Bottom Half Of Screen Flicking/flashing Lines?

Feb 8, 2012

my Mac started doing this a week ago. The bottom half of the screen flickers/flashes lines. If I leave it open on a flat surface and I touch the screen for a little bit, it'll go back to normal. When I close the laptop, put it in my case, and travel around with it, the next time I open it up it'll start flashing again.

MacBook Air :: 13" 2010 Thin White Lines Across Bottom Half Of Screen?

Dec 9, 2010

Just received the new 13" macbook air yesterday and today have noticed some very thin horizontal banding lines across the bottom portion of the screen.

Has anyone else noticed this, or check to see if your one has this problem.

It is quite subtle but it makes the icons on the dock look as if they have a card like effect through them.

Easiest to check if you make your screen wallpaper the dark grey colour.

On this the top part of the screen seems consistent, but at the bottom part there is very thin white horizontal lines. I tried updating the software, but it seems to be the same - looks like a faulty display may have to send back,wondering if it could be fixed with a software update.

The strange thing is black and dark colours do not produce the effect it only shows up on greys or medium contrast colours like blue.

OS X :: Almost Half Of Applications Suddenly Gone

Jan 24, 2009

So I have a late 2006 MacBook running OS X 10.5.6. Today I noticed that my iCal icon was translucent and there was the "?" on top of it. Confused I clicked on the applications folder in the dock and the grid showed all of the applications on my mac, however it was only about 35 applications. Normally I have the full grid plus 10 or so that are left to see in finder. Now I was worried so I went to the actual applications folder and there was a lot of empty space in between each app, the perfect amount of space for the apps that are now gone. So I clicked on iPhoto and iChat in the dock and both appeared with question mark... And oddly enough I had been using iChat but didn't realized that it disconnect from the internet, so I quit it and tried to restart which is when I got the question mark. I do have weekly backups of my computer on a Time Machine which makes me feel a bit safer, but I still would like to know what is causing this.

OS X :: 10.5.3 Update Half Installed Now G4 Not Booting

Jan 9, 2009

I've been successfully running Leopard on 2 different drives on the following computer
G-4 (digital audio) 733 {model before Quicksilver}
upgraded to 1.47 GHZ....processor. 1 gig of memory

Computer has been handling Leopard fine up to now. I was updating one of the drives to 10.5.3 when the screen activity locked up. After quite a long time and ceasing of drive crunching data....I did a hard restart. Since this time, the drive wont start up,. just the spooling rotor underneath the apple on the gray screen, which doesn't stop. There is no time-machine backup on this drive. I've used the Leopard install disc to run the disc utility and repair permissions but this is a case of an update, half installed. Of course, with Leopard, booting with the install disc does not show the drive, disc image on the desktop...so access for re-running the update isn't there.

MacBook :: Half RAM Displaying On Board (32 Bit OS)

Oct 10, 2009

I've had my White Macbook for the best part of about a year now, and I'm really pleased with it. Recently though it's been getting a little sluggish, I checked the specs out and I have 1GB of RAM on board, I though fair play, and got a 4GB Kit. I've just plugged it in and it's only displaying 2GB on board.

I could understand if it maxed at 3 as I am only running a 32bit OS and it wouldn't be able to index the extra gig. I'm now looking closer at the RAM Modules and its saying that they are 1GB each. It seems as if one of my DIMM Slots isn't working, any ideas what I can do or is it back to the Apple store for a hefty repair bill?

Hardware :: The New Wireless Keyboard - Why'd They Cut It In Half

Dec 15, 2009

I'm not complaining about the new wireless keyboard. I'm just after some other peoples' thoughts about it.

I just bought my first Mac - a 27" iMac w/ 8GB RAM. It's one hell of a sweet machine and I'm loving using it. Obviously, it came with the new wireless keyboard and magic mouse (which I don't use but that's a different story).

Both work flawlessly but I'm curious about what people think re Apple's decision to make the keyboard without a number pad, arrows in a different place, home/end keys etc.

I'm a pretty heavy Photoshop user and and have formed a whole lot of habits around shortcuts, one of which is the use of the arrow keys to nudge objects/layers/whatever - I'm used to the arrow keys being in a specific place.

With designers/creatives being such a large part of Apple's user base, why do you reckon they did away with the "full" right side of the standard keyboard? I've got a full size wired one which solves this "problem" but ... well ... it's wired.

OS X :: Admin Privileges Gone Along With Half Of Stuff

Jan 13, 2010

First, here is the spec of my machine.
Hardware Overview:
Model Name:Mac Pro
Model Identifier:MacPro1,1
Processor Name:Dual-Core Intel Xeon
Processor Speed:2.66 GHz
Number Of Processors:2
Total Number Of Cores:4
L2 Cache (per processor):4 MB
Memory:4 GB
Bus Speed:1.33 GHz
Boot ROM Version:MP11.005D.B00
SMC Version (system):1.7f10
Serial Number (system):CK7480180GP
Hardware UUID:00000000-0000-1000-8000-0017F20F877E

I have three drives on my computer. I bought Fusion 3 to install on drive No 3 because I need windows based music and sound studio programs that I already own. All 3 drives had a working OS X system which I thought was Leopard. Fusion 3 would not load and said that the drive needed OS X. Since the drive already had a working system on it I assumed that it Fusion 3 wanted Snow Leopard, so I loaded it. This is the result:- It loaded reloaded Snow Leopard onto all three drive in spite of me selecting drive 3.

Lost:-
All iPhoto picture on every drive.
All itunes recordings, (mostly home studio personal stuff) on every drive
All address book info on every drive
Most non Apple software such as Photoshop, all (replaceable by using the original disc) on every drive
All settings, background, dashboard, Mail etc.
All administration privileges, and I mean ALL, the clocks are 8 hours out and I don't have enough admin power to change the time.
iWork 8, specifically 'Pages', which I can't reload because of the admin problem so I can't save a document of any description.

I will have to wipe and start again, but I can't wipe (admin). I have tried resetting permissions but I am not allowed to unlock the little lock! Can I wipe the discs in a Windows based computer and then put them back in the Mac for reformatting? I have a tetrabyte of external drive that still works fine with most of my pictures backed up there after an iPhoto glitch which wiped the lot. I have found a folder called images which contains a lot but not all my lost pics (which I have backed up anyway) but it has pictures that I deleted 2/3 years ago, and all pictures are duplicated from three to five times in varying resolutions.
