IMac :: Yellow Tint With Bleeding On Sides / Prominent Yellow Tint Streaking On Screen

Jul 4, 2009

Alu 24" 2.4ghz when they first came out with aluminum, got it at the store. since august 07 My imac had a small yellow tint, i noticed, when i got it and it was not worth anyhting screaming about, i also noticed it had bleeding issues ath the bottom and sides. I wanted to return it or trade but i was convinced out of it.

Now i noticed that from left to right their is a prominent yellow tint streaking it's way across and fading around the half way point.It is irritating and sad to see this display on this mac was ok, at first but it is geting slightly worse.I have apple care, can i trade this/replace it at an applestore, or would they need to fix it?

IMac :: Yellow Tint On Screen / CPU Or A Display Issue ?

Jan 10, 2010

I see all these complaints about i7 iMacs, does the yellow tint affect Core2Duo models? Is the tint an effect of a MB/CPU issue or a display problem?

IMac :: 27" With Yellow Tint / How To Fix It

Sep 23, 2010

Now this is my first ever Mac after being dragged into the Apple world by my iPhone and iPad. I love it, everything is a joy to use and i've been surprised at how quickly I have adapted to the world of Mac.

Anyway when I got it home on the day I noticed a spec of dust under the glass. Called Best Buy but surprise, surprise they had sold out of the model I had. No biggie I thought, I will get it looked at one day.

IMac :: Yellow Tint Is Back?

Nov 27, 2010

So I took the hefty plunge and purchased the 27" i5 from a local Apple Retail Store, believing that Apple would have finally resolved the yellow-tint issue from over a year ago, or at least it would appear in much less iMacs as it has sorta died down on the forums.

Anyways, opened it last night, and continued copying over files to it today, only to notice that it has a slight yellow-tint issue towards the bottom 1/3 of display.

I've already made a genius bar appointment......I even purchased Apple Care on it, so the total was around 2.5k, and I'm hoping for them to allow a swap for another brand new unit? Is this likely, or will they just simply wave me off to a repair or refurb route. After dumping so much $ on it, and even purchasing Apple Care, I wouldn't be satisfied for anything but a straight exchange to a new unit.

Also, will they allow me to open it up right there and check to see that it doesn't have any display issues as well?

IMac :: Screeen With The Yellow Tint

Jun 12, 2010

I have read the many many threads on the Yellow Tint issue although i am concerned about buying a 27" i5 Imac as i've been saving for a while. I'd be really disappointed if i end up with a screeen with the yellow tint issue.

What i would like advice on is the following:-

Has the reason behind the yellow tint issue been found and has it been resolved?

Would waiting for the next updated Imacs be a better option as i am not in a major hurry to buy my imac although i would prefer to buy it sooner rather than later considering the time i have been saving.

MacBook :: Yellow Tint On Complete Screen / Worth Using Calibration Tool?

Apr 19, 2010

Both the Macbook and HP monitor are set to display Adobe RGB, the HP displays really crisp whites, and the MacBook is yellow in comparison. I'm wondering if all Macbooks display colours this way, or is mine faulty? I tend to work on the larger screen, but it'd be good to have the option to use the small one also.

I've considered buying a calibration tool (an overdue purchase) and/or taking it to the Mac store, it'd be a great help if anyone knows if it's a problem that can be fixed at all.

MacBook :: Yellow Tint On Screen / Colors Of Screen Are Dark?

Aug 28, 2010

I have a late 2006 Macbook, and my dad has an early 2009 Macbook. I was comparing the two today and noticed that there was a significant difference between their LCDs. My dad's Macbook has a lighter, more normal display. While mine has a yellow tint to it and is darker. Both computers were on the same display profiles and both had the same brightness set.

Is this just how LCDs are as they age? Or is mine really not supposed to have that yellow tint? The new Macbook is on the right in the pic.

MacBook Pro :: Yellow Tint On HR AG / Calibration Not Successful

Dec 10, 2010

I looked through the yellow tint threads and sure enough noticed that my high res AG had it. At first I dismissed it as poor viewing angles. I calibrated the LCD, which seemed to make it a bit better. But it is not a matter of viewing angles. I tried the test on my friend's old blackbook, and when viewing the screen head-on, the bottom square definitely looks yellow, BUT, when tilting the computer back, changing the viewing angle, the square turns white again, thus, a result of viewing angles. The same thing on my HR AG doesn't change the color of the bottom square, it stays yellowish. So I'm pretty much convinced that it's a real issue, at least to some degree.

I'm considering taking it back to the Apple store, or at least going there and seeing how their display models look. Something tells me that nearly all HR AG models (the current shipment that's out right now) suffers from this, and that my replacement will be the same. Does anyone think this is true as well? Should I even bother trying to swap it out? The yellow tint threads have several people that are going through 5-6 exchanges, and all still getting the same problem.

IMac :: 27" Backlight Bleeding Along With Yellow Screen

Jan 1, 2010

I have not seen any posts comparing these two symptoms together, but I am wonding if both exist on the same screens, or if they are infact seperate issues. I returned a 27" iMac i7 because it had both slight yellowing and terrible backlight bleeding. I have seen multiple machines first hand (3 Core 2 Duos week 41s) at different stores (Apple and Best Buy) that had no yellowing and no backlight bleeding. I won't get into how to check for yellowing, you can read about that issue here: [URL]

But to check for backlight bleeding is both easy and impossible not to see if you have it. To check for backlight bleeding, a quick way is to bring up a site like or any other black background, and check for an inconsistent white glow on the edges of your screen. I had serious backlight bleeding in the lower corners of my screen, which happens to be where the yellowing was happening. I don't know if they are related, but hopefully we can determine if there is any correlation here.

I did order a second machine, because I know Apple knows how to make a 27" iMac with a perfect screen (as advertised), since I have seen 3 of them in the wild. Hopefully they will be back to the quality that they had is their early production units very soon.

IMac :: 2nd Screen Has Yellowish Tint On Dell 24"

Aug 13, 2008

So I got a brand new iMac 5 days ago and I connected my dell 24" (2407) to it.. I seem to have a yellowish tint.. I tried to calibrate it and it still seems to have it on there... On my pc the dell has a perfect screen.. Yesterday I go to turn on my new iMac and it wouldn't turn on.. I kept on pressing the power button and it wouldn't turn on.. So I unplugged the power cable and put it back in and nope didn't work... so at this point i am upset i pressed it really hard and it turned on.. So i turned it off and pressed the button again and it seems like it is working again, but why would it do that in the 1st place??

IMac :: Core I7 - Yellow Screen (Broken Bluetooth)

Feb 19, 2010

I have a week 50, i7, 2TB Imac. It has a very distinct yellow "tinge", and the Bluetooth does not work properly. Every time I reboot or start, the "Bluetooth setup assistant" starts, which I have to force quit. The wireless keyboard and mouse work fine, but I can't add either of my two bluetooth headsets. They pair, but when I try to activate them, it goes to the bluetooth settings screen, where it says that bluetooth is "off", despite the on checkbox being checked and the keyboard and mouse working. I called support and they had me do a bunch of things, the last thing being reinstalling the OS. Didn't work. So now I need to call them back. I have two problems, the yellow screen and the Bluetooth. Should I ask for a replacement? I see that a lot of people have gotten a replacement just for the yellow screen problem. I have two faults.

IMac :: Yellow Corner Replace With White Screen Balance

Sep 25, 2010

i bought the 2009 refurbed 27"er and returned it 3 times due to yellow screen problem. for the 4th replacement they decided to send me the new model.

i have the 3rd and 4th replacements sitting here side by side.the 3rd replacement, which has a yellow corner is light years better than the new one.
the new screen doesn't have yellow's a perfectly consistent yellowish brown tone.
the older one has a yellow corner, but is much more illuminated and very balanced white. the max brightness of the new one is only 3/4s of the max of the old one.i tried configuring it to no avail.

are all the new models like this?it's quite a bit snappier, but the screen is worse than the last 3 that had yellow patches? it almost seems like it was a return and it shipped from cali rather than asia?

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 :: 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.

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.

MacBook Pro :: Red Tint On Antiglare 15" Core I7 (9CB7 Screen)?

Apr 23, 2010

The first MacBook Pro I got had the screen off centre (it was left in the bezel - there was no black perimeter on the left but a big one on the right). I did notice it also had a reddish tint to it. That display was a 9CB7.

The replacement has the screen more centred, so happy with that. But there is a red tint to this one too on the top left.

The bottom right is fine, colours look great, but middle and top left there is a red tint. The Safari bar is very warm when I have it up the top left, but when I move to the bottom right, it is perfect grey.

Anyone else got the 9CB7 screen? Red tint to that?

I'm going to have to exchange it again.. and hope I don't end up with the 9CB7 or any other issues.

Both units had darker tint towards the edge of the screens. I know colour shift happens with TN panels, but not like this?

IMac :: Help! IMac 21.5" (Late 2009) Showing Slight Yellowish Tint!

Jul 24, 2010

Hey guys! So just a few days ago, I received my iMac, and boy do I love it. A definite upgrade and improvement from my old Acer Aspire 3680.

But despite this, I have noticed that my iMac does have a slight yellowish tint at the bottom to corners. I just arrived at my desk, and the login window (I keep a password lock) had a slight yellowish tint when I woke up my iMac from sleep . I then noticed that the bottom two corners had a slight yellow tint to them. I verified this via the MacRumors Forum post, and I was able to find it out by making my desktop background white. Again, it may not seem noticeable at first, but if you examine it closely, it becomes apparent.

I've already called my local Apple store and one of them said that don't know about this issue (?) and that they could schedule an appointment for me. I declined because I have to have me parents take me and I'm pretty sure that I can't handle the load of carrying a 20lbs. computer w/o dropping it (yikes!).

So here's the big question, should I go to my local Apple store or call the Apple hotline when it's open (currently closed at the time of this thread)? I don't want to sound like a lunatic or someone that just wants to get a better iMac for free. Again, it's slight, but considering that I do movie editing and Photoshop work
