Faint white spots on macbook pro lcd screen

Dear experts,
I own a macbook pro 1.83 GHz Intel (one of the first releases - year 2006) and I recently noticed some brighter spots located at various positions in the LCD screen. They look like faint fingerprints, but I cleaned the screen several times, and it seems they are due to some LCD defect? The macbook pro is too old for the warranty... Is there a way to get rid of the spots?
Thank you!! Rob

If the spots remain in the same place I'm sorry to say no. Be careful what you clean the screen with. I'm a fan of a warm wet damp only rag. Using alcohol or other cleaners may damage the surface. There are also cleaners available at local stores. You don't need anti-static on an LCD display. The spots can be from pressure on the display applied at some point even if that pressure happens when closing or transpoting your laptop.There is no way to fix it.

Black spot in my screen.


Unfortunately not. this is either caused by internal damage to the lcd or it could be caused by a light leak in the lcd. It needs to be taken to the Apple store if you still have the one year warranty or if you purchased an extended apple care plan. If not you can contact a local independent repair person.

Try a firmware update. Plug in the power, remove the battery and startup the Mac but hold the power button down until you get a loud BEEEP and the lights flash repeatedly, and let it do it's thing. That will reset the motherboard.
If that doesn't do it, it's hardware (screen, Cable or Motherboard) and better for Apple to sort it out (Usually for free)

When I open my macbook, the screen will be dark, and I have to adjust the lid to just the right angle, and the screen will then come on - when it's at the right angle there are no problems, no dead spots...


It's a problem with the lcd video cable.

It only works when you hit the right spot because the wires aren't getting enough contact.

I'd recommend getting it fixed by a local Mac tech off craigslist. It's not difficult for a tech, but for a novice it's a bit tough.

Can I use an Apple M7649 Studio Display with a MacBook Pro


Do you have the black unibody Macbook Pro that was just released, or the silver model?

Since the display is DVI, it will directly hook up to the silver model. If you have the new model, you need a mini DVI to DVI adapter.
