Question about Apple Customized 15" MacBook Pro Laptop Computer Notebook

1 Answer

15' macboo pro 2008 15' screen problem. Colors turn negatitive when screen is tilted a certain way.

Entire screen is effected. The colors aren't exactly negatives but they flip to neon sort of colors that don't blend well and is practically unreadable/viewable. Used to only happen when I tilted the screen at a certain angle but it got progressively worse. Now I have to constantly apply pressure towards me on the top right corner for the colors to be normal.

Sounds like the video cable is pinched in the hinges. This was really common with first generation macbook air. iFixit.com has guides for disassembling, but you'll quite likely need a new video cable.

SOURCE: colors on Mac G4 Powerbook display are severely distorted

Hi
Goto Apple>SystemPreferences>

in the System section choose UniveralAccess>Seeing and make sure it says Black on White is selected, that Use Grayscale is unchecked and contrast is set to Normal.

If it's not that then its your display and needs a service.

All the best

SOURCE: delete key on macbook pro won't work

you may have inadvertently set up a keyboard short cut on the delete key... go to your system preference app in the dock. Then select keyboard shortcuts... if you select "default" at the bottom of the window it will revert to the factory shortcuts and eliminate any you may have accidentally created...
Hope that solves your delete issue...

SOURCE: When I start up my MacBook Pro the display colors

It is likely that some program has grabbed (allocated) a good part of the color table. This used to be a problem with 256-color color tables--be sure you are set to millions of colors--Windows could be changing this. Try starting up with the shift key down (safe boot) and if this works, you will need to turn off some program that are being started up automatically. You may need to go to Terminal and look for the resource file ".bashrc" or ".cshrc" (pronounced sea-shark), which could be starting other programs, although I didn't find one on my machine just now. Use the "ls -a" command to list all including the hidden ones beginning with period. I use non-hidden files when I invoke certain Unix programs, just use ". program-name" in the bash shell, with no quotes, of course.

SOURCE: My MacBook Pro display screen

Don't worry you have put on one of the universal access settings if you go to system preferences and then universal access under display change the setting from white on black to black on white. Hope this helps

SOURCE: My other computer, G4 Macbook Pro, has a screen

Connect an external display to the computer. If the lines and distortion shows up on the external display its the video card, which is attached to the logic board. So, the whole logic board will need to be replaced.
If the lines and distortion don't show up on the external display the issue is the LCD module, which will need to be replaced.

Yes. It's the F2 key, right above the 2 key.
With certain (rather unusual) Peferences settings, you have to hold down the fn key on the lower left corner of your keyboard for the Fkeys to have their ordinary effect.

SONY PROJECTION TV MODEL # KP-51WS510.


If the entire screen is curved, and it is not taking the whole screen, then you have a vertical deflection problem.

If the colors are double and do not match, with lines of different colors around pictures , then you have a convergence problem, often caused by a faulty convergence board.

The curving effect can be a side effect of bad convergence, or you may have both problems at once.

Unless you are a TV repairer yourself, better calling technical support. Usually you can ring the number listed on the owner manual.

Vertical lines across my entire screen


My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.
