PowerPC :: Strange Pink Artifacts Over IMac G5 Screen

May 11, 2009

I have an iMac G5 (rev. B with ambient light sensor) which has suddenly started having a problem where the entire screen is covered with pink artifacts. The iMac had been left on overnight and when waking up in the morning I found the screen looking like this and now it continues to stay like this no matter what I do. I have attached a screenshot and was wondering if anyone might have a clue what has caused this to happen

IMac :: Pink / White And Green Checked Pattern On Screen

Mar 15, 2010

I own a 17" g5 imac and today I was just browsing on Firefox and all of a sudden the screen became checkered with thin pink and white lines. It is most noticeable on the menu bar and anything that is grey or white in color. It is not checkered on the blue background behind my desktop photo. I have an external monitor plugged in as well and the same thing is happening to that monitor.

I have a powerPC imac G5

Haven't reformatted it yet. Hope there is a better solution. Purchased it used about a year ago. No warranty.

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??

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?

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.

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 :: 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 :: Screen Goes Pink Flickering On IBook

Apr 2, 2010

I'm new to this forum and sensed that maybe someone could give me an advice about my damaged LCD screen of my old iBook.

A few days ago I opened my iBook and the screen suddenly couldn't portrait any white color properly. Everything was flickering and moving. Darker areas have a green flickering as well. I'm not a absolute tech expert, but I tried already a few things. I hooked it up to an external monitor and the picture was fine! So it must be hardware related right?

Now the weird thing. Sometimes the panel suddenly works properly for a few hours. I don't know what could trigger it, I tried everything. What should I do? I took some pictures and uploaded them to Flickr:

I know the machine is old, but I originally planned to get a new MBP this summer. I can't afford a new machine right now and the current MBP are just overpriced compared to similar old products on the market.
I have to be mobile, so I need a laptop.

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

Power Mac G5 :: Pink Vertical Lines Appearing On 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 :: 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.

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

Sep 2, 2010

My A1226 is really giving me fits. It will display persistent vertical pink and green pixel column patterns in windows or over the entire screen at start up. 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!

MacBook :: Screen Suddenly Shows Blue And Pink Vertical Lines?

Apr 25, 2012

I am trying to get my MacBook LCD to work right. It happened because one time I was carefully wiping my MacBook screen with a little hand sanitizer and a paper towel. However, later my screen started to show a-lot of weird lines and eventually blue, pink and green tiny vertical lines but it is not completely renderd useless, it is just plain annoying and whenever I have an open window on the screen for a long time and I move it around eventually, it shows an imprint in the background into the screen and even when I restart, shutdown or use Windows in BootCamp it just shows up.

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.

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.

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.
