Screen colour My problem is that when my macbook is set on millions of colours on the display. The colours are so  bright that it distorts the picture.

Re: screen colour


You should be able to lower the brightness, using the slider below the resolution menu. For longer display and battery life, Apple recommends lowering the threshold. But, it should not be making the image distort or have any degradation to the image. If your machine is less than a year old ( and has no signs of user fault or P2P software ) you are eligible for complementary APPLECARE assistance. It makes no difference where you bought the computer. APPLE is international, and any APPLE STORE or 3rd PARTY APPLE AUTHORIZED REPAIR CENTER, should examine and troubleshoot this issue.

Keep me posted.

I have connected my macbook to my tv using mini

Later MacBook (Pro) use a mini-DVI connector that does not pass analog needed for composite or S-video. Was yours ever working? And most DVI connectors do not pass sound as seen by your cabling. You cannot detect display through RCA. You just set it in Sys Prefs :: Displays, try some other settings, although your seem right.
I have a white early-2009 MacBook and mini-DVI to HDMI adapter (monoprice <$10) and HDMI cable and have not connected the TOS-link for sound, yet--just slideshows at 1920x1080. You will get a much better picture digitally. -Ken

Screen lines on MacBook.

Sounds like dropped pixels.  My first guess is the computer has been dropped on its corner, with the pixel dropout radiating diagonally from the corner.
My saint bernard sat on my g3 lombard, and I have vertical pixel dropout because of it, from the top of the screen to the bottom.
And no, it is not normal for a macbook to have lines across the screen.
