Question about Apple iBook G3 Mac Notebook

1 Answer

Negative screen image

When I turn on my iBook the display looks normal for the first few seconds, then the whole picture turns "negative": everything that is supposed to be black or dark is white and everything that is supposed to be white or light colored is black. Everything is working fine otherwise - but I can't find anything in the preferences to change this troublesome orientation.

    Thank you SO much! I have no idea how this option got selected - but your tip helped me change it back in a half a second.

Look in System Preferences for Universal Access, there is a Display option which says Black on White(the normal setting) and White on Black (the setting that has been enabled).

There is a keyboard short cut to change the setting, it involves pressing four keys - Apple, Option, ^ and 8.

    No problem, I found the options in there after our youngest child managed to enable the Zoom function (by pressing a few buttons altogether I expect) in the same place.

    I thought the monitor was broken as it went all fuzzy! (try it on an LCD screen and it goes really blurry)

Then press joystick RIGHT and LEFT to select your required image rotation there is four type of rotations.

I would return it and get a brand name. It either has a bad lcd panel or digital board. If it breaks with no warranty you will be SOL.

I have an LCD TV. All of a sudden the picture colour has gone wierd. The best way to describe it is that it is similar to either a colour negative or one of those scientific 'false colour' images. This...


TFTs can produce a wide array of colors, but it takes an enormous number of transistors to make up a display, and a problem with any one of them creates a defective pixel on the screen. Typically this shows up as a bright spot on a dark background, caused by a damaged TFT failing to turn off a pixel. Most active matrix displays contain a few bad pixels, but a few bad pixels are not going to have much of an impact on the overall picture.
The properties of liquid crystal material can create problems with viewing angle effects, causing the image to darken, disappear, or reverse the dark and light tones when the viewer is not directly in front of the display (kind of like looking at the negative of a photo). The light bulbs make LCDs heavier than the plasma TVs (though they are still lightweights compared to CRT televisions.
Benefits of LCD TVs include a picture that can't burn in and doesn't deteriorate over time. Because of their flat-panel nature, placement options are plentiful, optimizing the cool factor over standard TVs

That is an effect that can be had by internal software in the camera, like my Sony. Just get in there and turn off "negative" Youll probably see Sepia, solarize, B/W and negative as other choices.
