Black screen on Macbook Pro 2014

The screen on my MacBook Pro retina 2014 stays black for 20-30 seconds (with the cursor visible) when i activate it after it has been deactivated while not using the computer for a while. Why does it stay black?

I think there isn't a real problem at 2ºC but that is a bit cold. It could affect the hardware. If the problem persists inside at room temp, them take it in for service since it is in warranty.

  • Multiple kernel panics & black screen on Macbook Pro Retina early 2013

    My Macbook Pro Retina (early 2013, 8GB ram, 250 GB hard drive) has been experiencing multiple kernel panics forcing rapid-fire restarts of the computer multiple times within a very short time frame. This is followed by the screen staying black even if the computer is on (keyboard lit up, can hear volume buttons) but nothing is on the screen. Once the screen goes black, I have to employ some combination of manually shutting it down (by holding down the power button) and then turning it back on (+/- doing an SMC reset) to get the screen working again. I also tried a PRAM reset once, but it didn't seem to have any effect, and I've repaired the disk permissions. 
    This issue has happened multiple times in the past week. It seems to vary as to how long it takes to happen again (could be a few days, could be less than an hour), and it has happened during multiple different activities (surfing the web, using Word, using Mail). I have experienced this both on Mavericks and after updating to Yosemite over the weekend.
    I took it to the Apple Store on Saturday and while the Genius saw that the screen was black when I initially brought it in (even though the computer was on), we couldn't recreate the issue and the diagnostic tests he ran showed nothing. It even started back up fine for him. I thought I was OK, until I had another round of kernel panics + black screen this afternoon. At this point, doing a normal restart of the machine results in a kernel panic before it even makes it off of the loading screen and then a black screen.
    This time, I checked the logs and saw the panic report included below. I don't know enough about this to understand what it means, but hopefully someone else does! Some internet searching has suggested that it might be a problem with the GPU (and the log below says GPU panic). Help, please!

  • Black screen on MacBook Pro running 10.6.8

    Zapping PRAM, safe reboot, battery removal -- no help. Ideas? Have been using external monitor for about a year since hinge broke and ate the screen in the process. Right now external monitor does give me a "no signal" message at shutdown so I know it's working. Thanks.

    Boot disk on USB Thumb drive - Augusta Maine
    Apr 28, 2014 7:06 PM 
    I have a mid 2010 15" MBP i5 with 8 gigs of ram running Snow Leopard 10.6.8
    Three times in two months it crashes to black screen and the only way back it a hard (power button - off) restart.  Then it works fine. I have to pay more attention as to what I was doing at the time, but in all three cases I was actively using the keyboard.  I do not have any video games on this laptop. I can't say for sure, but I am thinking it happens when I execute something new, today it happened when using Chrome.  I either just launched it, or more likely it crashed when I hit RETURN to initiate a search.
    I captured all three error reports, the beginning of each are as follows.  Any and all sggestions are appreciated. And if MAINE ISLANDER is reading this, I have a Snow Leopard bood disk on thumb drive that you can borrow if in the Augusta area.

  • Black Screen on MacBook Pro Early 2008

    Hey guys,
    i have a problem. My MacBook Pro Early 2008 doesnt boot anymore. If i press the power button the screen remains black and the hdd spins a few seconds and you can hear the superdrive make a short noise. But nothing more happens.
    I know from the nVidia 8600m GT issue and i even have the modelnumber A1260 but the apple reseller told me that if there comes no start sound , it is not that problem. My question is: is it possible that the (probably) defect 8600m gt chip on my logicboard has caused a defect of the whole logicboard ? I heard from a guy whos board was repaired for free but its PowerManagment Unit on the logicboard was defect but the Technical guy told him , that it was caused by the nvdia chip and so it was repaired for free. How can i find out if my chip was the reason for the defect ?
    Iam not a native speaker and i hope you can understand what iam trying to say iam happy for every correction and help.
    greets
    max

    "How can i find out if my chip was the reason for the defect ?"
    By having it examined by a certified Apple technician. If necessary, show the tech the KB Article: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2377 MacBook Pro: Distorted video or no video issues
    "apple reseller told me that if there comes *no start sound* , it is not that problem."
    You do not have a start sound?
    Have you tried starting up from your install DVD?
    If you have AppleCare, strongly suggest that you contact them first.

  • Black screen on MacBook Pro Retina Display after installing Moutain Lion. Need Help!

    My macbook pro (retina) screen went black after I installed Mountain Lion.
    I got a HDMI cable to another monitor and the image worked nicely there.
    But i cant get it back on my MacBook Pro! I tried taking out the HDMI cable, restarting, searching on settings configs..
    What should I do?
    Are there any drivers i should install to get image back on my MacBook Pro Retina Display?
    Has this happened to anyone else?
    Thanks in advance for all the help.

    That helped me finding other people with similar problems.
    But there is a major difference!
    -They have a black screen after they login.
    -My screen is black NOW! And I'm only using my BRAND NEW rmbp with the HDMI cable to my TV!
    This isnt good at all and I would like to solve it asap..
    I tried reinstalling Mountain Lion, taking out the hdmi cable and rebooting many times.
    Until now, nothing!
    Is my screen broken or maybe my video card has some problems?
    I hope not! I just traveled from the US to Brazil and I dont want to search for an Apple Store here.
    Any tips or ideas are welcome, thank you.

  • Sudden black screen on Macbook Pro.

    Hi everyone,
    Occasionally when using my macbook pro the screen turns black, yet the macbook appears to be still running (keyboard lighting is still on and the notebook makes its usual sounds). This happens like once a week on a random occasion, but always seems to follow an action (last time the screen went black after emptying my iPhoto trash can). To activate my macbook i always have to manually shut down and reboot.
    I use a Macbook Pro purchased in 2010, with mac OS X Lion installed. This sudden black screen problem did not occur before installing Lion.
    Does anyone else experience this problem? And any suggestions on solving it?
    Kind regards,
    Tom

    I have the following failure since updating the EFI firmaware in my Macbook Pro 13" 2011:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDkSah8rn3E
    I´ve been asking Apple for about a month to fix it under warranty but no answer so far, they say tha the error cannot be repoduced at the store so I sent the video to them, still waiting for an answer.

  • Upgrade to Lion Causes Black Screen On MacBook Pro

    I read early discussion posts on this topic and thought by now Apple would have corrected this poblem but apparently not.  I updgraded my MacBook Pro last night to Lion and since last evening I have had 5 black screen (failures) and had to power off and reboot.  Is there a known correction or update to this problem?  It is extremely disappointing as I need my Mac for my business and cannot afford to send it to a depot for a five day repair.
    This same problem was happening to me with an older OS but ONLY when I used both PowerPoint and Parallels at the same time.  For this probem I took the MacBook into the Genius Bar and had to leave it there through the weekend and all day Monday.  They told me after running multiple tests they found no hardware problems and the issue had to be software.  The only fix was a five day depot repair.  I thought I would manage by not using PowerPoint and Parallels together but now, with the Lion Upgrade it happens with ALL apps and when I simply try to read an email.  Very, Very DISAPPOINTING.  COME ON APPLE, DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.  PLEASE.

    Lion has been causing a lot of problems on older hardware, it killed a 4 year old 15" MBP on me.
    Go back to 10.6, the stability of your business comes first.

  • Black screen after MacBook Pro wakes from sleep; reason, solution?

    Greetings!
    I have 2 MacBook Pro machines; both are running the latest versions of OSX for their age.
    The 2 GHz Core Duo is using 10.6.8 (2GB RAM) and 2.5 GHz Duo Core 2 is using the 10.7.x (4GB RAM).
    Both are routinely used with external monitors. Every so often when either of the machines are put to sleep, the external monitor disconnected, and finally when the machine is woken, the native screen remains black and unlit. If the machine is connected to the external monitor, it shows its appropriate desktop but the finder bar is unavaible so nothing can be done short of forced shut down and a reboot.
    Am I forgetting some simple short cuts (key-bases) to bring the native screen to life or is forced shut-down really necessary?

  • Black screen on macbook pro 13in 2011

    A few weeks ago my screen went black while I was having a web cam chat with my wife. I was able to hook it up to my flat screen TV and it is working fine but not on my main apple disply screen. The apple icon on the back isn't lighting up and I can see shadows on my screen now after I did a PRM reset. Everything is working the way it should just not the screen. I'm living in China so my options are limited to where I can go to get it fix. I don't want anyone telling me its the mother board when I know it isn't (as I was told before along with a very high price for a new one).
    Can anyone help me with a self repair option?
    Thanks.

  • How to connect new Macbook pro 2014 to iMac 2010 for a secondary display

    I have a new Macbook Pro 2014 and an old iMac 2010. How can I connect them to have an additional secondary display? I thought I would need a thunderbolt cable with a Thunderbolt to Mini DisplayPort adapter but I can't find that. There's lots of options and I don't understand what would be best.
    Macbook Pro 2014
    iMac 2010
    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Hi Nathaniel,
    Thunderbolt is another way of calling it a Mini Displayport, thunderbolt is just faster and has more usage with other products (i.e. hdds, displays etc.) You can hook up a thunderbolt to a mini-display port because both are the same size and serve the same function. Just don't connect anything to the display port on the iMac other than a computer.
    Kind Regards,

  • Macbook Pro 2014 (16gb ram) running very slow in excel.  Can anyone help?

    My Macbook Pro 2014 is running extremely slow in Mac Excel 2011.  I just recently made the purchase (Last week) to upgrade from my Macbook Pro 2013.  The upgrade was for work as I handle large spreadsheets in my new role.  It would take some time to load before, and I was told it was because I only had 4GB of RAM.  Now, I have 16 GB of RAM and it runs slower than before.  Can anyone assist me with a solution?

  • My Macbook Pro 2014 ran out of battery while mid-slideshow. Now the slideshow won't skip through photos and I can't figure out why? Macbook Pro 2014 13-inch Intel i5 8GB RAM 128GB flash, iPhoto library is on external HDD

    Macbook Pro 2014
    13-inch
    Intel i5
    8GB RAM
    128GB flash SSD,
    Integrated Graphics
    iPhoto library is on external HDD
    I was in a slideshow, with around 1,911 photos in it. About halfway through, my Macbook ran out of battery. Now when I restarted and charged the Macbook and reopened iPhoto, the slideshow won't advance through photos, and I can't figure out any reason why it would do this.
    I thought it may be corrupted, so I deleted and reinstalled iPhoto library, iPhoto itself, and disconnected and reconnected my external HDD.
    This didn't work, the photos still won't advance.
    I don't know any reason why this would be happening, and there is ample space on my internal drive.
    I'm happy to provide more information if needed!
    Many Thanks,
    James

    Make a few tests, James, to narrow down the problem and find out, if the slideshow is corrupted, your iPhoto Library, or settings in your account.
    To test, if only your slideshow has a problem, create a new slideshow, just for testing. Just use "File > New Slideshow" and add a few photos. Does this slideshow play correctly?
    If the test slideshow does not play either, create a new iPhoto Library. Use the File menu in iPhoto: File > Switch to library > Create New. Import a few photos and create a slideshow.  Does it play?
    If even a new library does not solve the problem, test in a different user account (see this document:  Isolating an issue by using another user account - Apple Support):   
    This process involves creating a new user account, logging in to it, and testing for the issue.
    Create a new standard or admin user account in Users & Groups preferences.
    Use these instructions for OS X Mavericks.
    See these instructions for OS X Mountain Lion.
    See this video, or these instructions for OS X Lion.
    Optional: If you have any specific files you wish to test with, copy (don't move) those items to the /Users/Shared folder in the Finder.
    Log out of your current user account by choosing Log Out from the Apple () menu.
    Log in with the new account you created.
    Attempt to reproduce the issue you were seeing in your regular user account.
    After you have completed testing, log out of the test account by choosing Log Out from the Apple () menu.
    Log in as your regular account.
    After you have completed all testing with the test user account, you may want to delete it. You can delete an account in the Users & Groups pane of System Preferences.
    Note: Prior to deleting a test account, make sure you are completely done with it. If you have files in the Guest User you wish to keep, you should copy them to the /Users/Shared folder .
    If you should find, that slideshows only play in a new user account, post back.

  • A0020 model of screen in Macbook Pro Retina 13' (Late 2013)

    A0020 model of screen in Macbook Pro Retina 13'. Anyone know who is the manufacturer of this screen? I've tried to find it on the internet, but it's seems that nobody know. I'm worried a little bit about that, because I didn't knew about the problem with the LG displays in Mac. In case that it's  LG, there is some instructions how to prevent screen degradation?

    Go step by step and test.

  • Changing the screen ? Macbook pro 2006/2008

    Hi all !
    I need to buy a new mac laptop, but infortunately, I can't use the LED screens (yes, I know, it's a pity - it gives me serious headaches, and no one computer builder seems to take these kinds of problem in consideration), so I can "only" think about the last generation of macs laptops without LED-backlight screens, the Macbook pro 2006/early 2007.
    But I was wondering something : if I can find a later one, before the unibody generation, like the 2008 one, 15", (with a LED-baclight), and find a Macbook pro 2006 non-LED-backlight screen, 15", will it be possible to change the LED screen to the non one, and so giving to the 2008 computer a non-led technology, or will it be some incompatibilities at some points ?
    Thank you for your answer,
    Rergards,
    T.

    Thank you for your answer, but yes, I did. And even if it's not soooo fast on a anti-glare LED one, the headache come anyway after a while.
    I also have used special calibration software for this kind of problem (the one with sunglasses icon). Honestly, it gives me maybe half an hour more of work before headache. But a 3 days migraina (or migraine, too late to know the right writing) for 1h30 of work on a LED-screen is not something I can handle every day.
    The fact is that I have to work also at other places than home, or wandering ones. So, that's why I wonder if it's possible to change displays, and ask the wonderful Apple community. :-)
    Thank you for your answer,
    T.

    Thanks for the suggestion, the next step was to call Apple, who gave me a claim number, which I discovered you must have to get anything done with them.  They refered me to a Apple store or repair center, after some reseach took it to the Computer Store in Mobile, Alabama and they were excellent.  They took pictures of the screen with bug submitted it to Apple who denied the claim but they kept kicking it up to the next level and finally Apple agreed to sent new cover.  The Computer Store had the cover the next day, they changed it out and now I am bug free.  If your in the area of Mobile Alabama you can feel good about getting help from the Computer Store.  For the two folks that responded to my note, Thank You, good comments and good advice.
