MBP changing color when thunderbolt display attached

So I have the last gen 17" mbp running 10.8.2.  the color on the display looks great except when I attach my new thudnerbolt dislpay.  The color temp of the MBP display goes really cool (blue) when the thunderbolt display is attached.  Whenever I unplug the display, it goes back to normal.  Anyone else seen this or have any idea what is going on?
Thanks,
Scott

Bought a TB display to use with my 2011 mbp last night.  Hate that it doesn't have a power button.
Really hate that the usb implementation seems quite broken.  I spend 95% of my time in Windows, and while the display functions, usb doesn't really.  The apple usb keyboard i bought sticks, and my dell mouse hangs frequently.  both are plugged into the display, but they work fine when plugged into the laptop directly. I also have a jabra usb headset plugged into the display.
I have noticed I can worsen the situation by actually using the display hardware.  If I start a call using the headset, the keyboard and mouse become even worse.  If I start using the facetime hd camera on the display, they become horribly erratic.
Apple definitely has some work to do.  They are billing this is a docking solution and it is completely unusable as such right now.

  • Can anyone tell me why a picture would change color when I try to download/upload it?  It is the exact same picture- chosen the same way and when it goes to any other program it changes the color (I've tried canvas on demand and mpixpro.  I've also tried

    Can anyone tell me why this picture changes color when I try to download/upload it?  It is the exact same picture I have taken from the same location.  The image on the left is via preview and the image on the right is what is shows like when I try to download it.  I have emailed it to myself and it shows fine on the computer and in CS4, but when I look at the download via my phone or on another computer it shows the wonky color on the right.  I have checked the color space shows RGB/8 bit.  Any ideas why or how to fix it?  It isn't with any one specific session.... and I've tried it on both my desktop and my laptop- saved image to an external hard drive and to drop box.  I've tried sending the image to canvas on demand, my email, mpxipro, POST editing- all the same result.  Please HELP!!  What am I doing wrong?

    Most of the time you see something like that. The image in question has a color profile other then sRGB. Some image viewers/displayers are color managed and others are not.  So the image do not look the same in all of the applications you use. So colors seem to change.
    Try converting it to sRGB color and see if then looks the same all around. Also I think PC and Mac displays are set to different gamma something like 1.8 and 2.2
    Though I'm colorblind I even see color variations.

  • PS file in illustrator changes color when I move it??

    When I open a ps file in illustrator some objects change color when I move them and are displayed correctly in preview and Photoshop, why and how do I fix this?
    Also the object seems to be duplicated. It should have the same and only the colors of the scale bar. In another file the image part is correct and the scale bar is incorrect.
    Should look like this:

    It is an odd problem. The "good" screen shot is from opening the PS file in mac's preview. As it is, I use several tools in illustrator to get the final image where I need it to be; several layers and what not. I have tired 5, 5.1, and 6 with the same problem. Again I have a different problem when I use a different figure:
    As you can see just the opposite problem is the case. The map part is good while the color scale if off. Both parts are made in the same way and more or less in the same sequence, I don't think it is purely a problem at birth and other software can "see" it correctly, so I don't think it is a hardware problem.

  • How do i get my events to change colors when i add new ones in my calendar

    How do I get my events to change colors when I add a new event in my calendar?

    When you add an event and you see the heading "Calendar", do you see a name to the right of it such as "Work"?  If you tap on the heading "Calendar" does it show you a list of calendars?
    I'm basing this on my experience using iCal on a Mac to sync with my iPad.  I created a number of calendars on the Mac and assigned them different colors.  Those appear on my iPad.  I don't know how to create additional calendars on the iPad alone - I must create them in iCal or MobileMe then they show up on the iPad.  Are you using a Mac or MobileMe?

  • Link in form of a pictrue - change color when sweeping

    Doing links in form of a word which change color when sweeping over them is simple in iWeb.
    I wonder how I do if I not just want the color of the text but also an image to change.
    Ex. I have a link in form of a bright cloud. When one sweep the mouse over it I want the cloud transform into a darker form of the same cloud.
    Perhaps I need a codescript which connect two pictures of the cloud?

  • Will my late 2007 MBP 17" run the Thunderbolt Display?

    No it won't. You need a computer with a Thunderbolt port.

  • Won't start with thunderbolt display attached

    Almost new 3.5 Ghz Intel Core i7 iMac 2014 SSD only, 32GB disk running 10.9.4.  Absolutely will not start up from shutdown state with an additional 27" Thunderbolt display attached.  Unplug the display, boots fine.  Then plug in the display, all works peachy.  Sleep is also broken and hangs on restart, except if you only sleep the displays, not the CPU then it always wakes up fine.  This is pathetic, very Windows-like. 
    Suggestions?

    10.9.3 and 10.9.4 have known issues with displays attached via Thunderbolt (for example see here Second display problem with 10.9.4 and 10.9.4 - Thunderbolt display for 6630M (Mini mid-2011) still broken ).

  • My Macbook display changes color when I open applications. It looks like there is a light blue layer over the screen, thus changing the color of my display. This layer goes away when i quit the applications.

    I am facing a problem and I am not sure if its a graphic card malfunction. When I open applications like Chrome, VLC player, and most apps, my display suddenly changes color. It is as though the Theme was changed. The normal grey panel on opened windows turns to light blue and everything else seem as though there is a light blue layer on top of it. When I close these applications (quit) the display returns to its normal self.
    My MacBook Pro is 2 years old, and I have an extended warranty. Will Apple replace my graphic card if it is actuall the graphic card's problem?

    I had that problem, too, and it's been documented both here and on the Adobe forums. What happens is that when you have dynamic switching on, when an application that uses your discrete GPU kicks in, the screen will change color. My problem lasted for a couple of weeks then just vanished.
    What you need to do is download Cody Krieger's gfxCardStatus and turn off dynamic switching and leave your GPU set to discrete only. That's the only fix that I know of at this time. I don't know why it happens or why mine stopped.
    Good luck,
    Clinton

  • Thunderbolt Display attached hard drive

    I hope this isn't a completely stupid question...I just haven't been to the Apple Store to ask nor have I been able to find an documentation to confirm or refute this issue. 
    Will a hard drive connected to the Thunderbolt Display that is hard-wired to a network via the Gigabit port be available as a network drive even when my Macbook Pro is not attached to the display?  Will they be similar to a network attached storage device or do they need a Mac to be attached in order to mount them?
    Thanks

  • MBP Changes color settings after sleep

    After my computer goes to sleep, it has recently been waking up with a different color setting. Where the yellows are very dull and the screen has a blue hue. When I go to System Pref > Displays it changes back to normal without me clicking anything. It is getting very annoying, anyone know why it is doing this?
    My computer is connected to a 24" LED cinema display which doesn't change colors on its own. The laptop has also done this without being connected to cinema display.
    Thanks guys

    This happens to me, also.
    Just as you described - it happens when connected to an external display and when not connected.
    It happens to me even without sleep; screensaver is enough.
    I have my computer set to ask for a password after sleep/screensaver. Do you?
    charlie
    P.S. I just did a search of the forums - this is apparently a very common problem, dating back at least to Leopard. I haven't seen a definitive fix for it yet.

  • I have a Thunderbolt iMac 27" with a Thunderbolt Display attached.  I would like to use the iMac and Thunderbolt display in Target Display Mode for my new Thunderbolt MacBook Pro.  So far, it seems I can only use the iMac screen itself.  How do I do this?

    When I press the Command + F2, the iMac screen becomes a secondary for the MacBook Pro, and the Thunderbolt Display becomes the primary screen for the iMac.  I was hoping that both screens would become secondaries for the MacBook Pro.  Does anyone know how I should proceed?  I have tried to connect the Thunderbolt display directly to the MacBook Pro, and the iMac to the Thunderbolt Display via the separate Thunderbolt cable, but there was no difference.  And since the MacBook Pro only has the one Thunderbolt port, I'm not sure how to proceed.

    Yes, eww, the language definitely states two thunderbolt displays, but I can understand the confusion and was siding with how they could make the mistake to think it would work like they want it to. My appologies for not being clear on that point, but I think you make it clear that the language in the ad says nothing about an imac.
    Having said that all the language about TB would suggest that this would be possible. http://www.apple.com/thunderbolt/
    High performance on display.
    Thunderbolt I/O technology provides native support for the Apple Thunderbolt Display and Mini DisplayPort displays. It also supports DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, and VGA displays through the use of existing adapters. So you can connect your Apple LED Cinema Display or other display, along with multiple high-speed devices, all from a single port.

  • Problems when cinema display attached to PowerBook

    I have a new PowerBook G4 (15" stretch) with OS 10.4.5. I also have a new 20" Apple cinema display. When the display is attached to the PowerBook, I've noticed a host of problems, including: HP LaserJet 1022 (new) prints only about 50% of the time--requires restart to get it working; USB mouse and keyboard attached to the display freeze (although I can still move the pointer with the trackpad on the PowerBook)--requires restart to get them working.
    The printer is plugged directly into the PowerBook's USB port. Nothing else besides the keyboard/mouse are plugged into the display's USB ports.
    I've reset the power manager several times; I don't let the computer go to sleep, although I do let the screens go dark after 15 minutes. I've tried all the usual printer fixes short of resetting the print system.
    The PowerBook and printer seem to work fine w/out the display; the printer works fine on another PowerBook.
    PowerBook G4 Mac OS X (10.4.4) RAM = 1.5 GB

    I am experiencing the same problem with a Samsung Aquos 52" connected thorough a Onkyo receiver/amplifier. The connection is DVI to HDMI to Onkyo amplifier and HDMI-HDMI to the TV. The main 23" Cinema Display flashes during turning on an off of both of TV and the amplifier and even when the TV is off and the amplifier is on, unless you restart the computer, it would keep detecting a second display, the only solution so far was to unattach the second display DVI to HDMI cable from the computer. Otherwise, several freezes occur after several flashes of the cinema display and eventually either the dock o the whole screen would freeze...Anyone knows how to avoid this issue? Btw, my id card is NVIDIA GeForce 6600.

  • How To Make Shapes Change Colors When Clicking on them. Example Sheet Sales Data.xlsx template with Excel 2013

    My question is related to the Sales Data.xlsx template that comes with Excel 2013
    IN this workbook is a sheet named Sales Data. It has, 3 shapes. One each for each of the tab sheets in the workbook. When I click on the 'Sales Report' shape it selects the sales report tab. When you do this the shape changes color and the 'Sales Data' shape
    also changes color.
    However I'm unable to figure out how the colors are changing. 
    I don't see any macros in the workbook/worksheet. Nor do I see any code for worksheet events. I don't see any modules in VBA either. I think what is happening is that there are 2 shapes. When you click on one, the one shape goes to the background and the
    other one comes to the foreground.
    I'm no sure how it's doing that. 
    Can someone look at this template, Sales Data.xlsx that comes with Excel and explain how this functionality works?
    Thank You

    The shapes are exactly as I suspected, each of 3 sheets has 3 'navigation' shapes. The shape with the same name as the sheet has no hyperlink and is coloured differently to indicate it refers to the active sheet. The other two have hyperlinks linked to respective
    sheets. 3x3 shapes, 9 in total, none of them ever change colour!
    It's logical though not necessary to name each shape same as the sheet it links to, but they'd work just as well with their original default names.
    For aesthetics, the shapes that refer to own sheet have a horizontal line on top, actually two shapes as a group.
    If still confused copy each set of 3 shapes to a 4th sheet, or open two new windows so you can see all three sheets at the same time.

    I want to boot without having a display attached. post is stuck in b2. If I attach hdmi cable to display boots fine.
    As far as I can recall, there is no way to stop the POST sequence from searching for either IGD or PEG graphics and still proceed to boot an OS. Graphics will be required to set up the UEFI/BIOS settings, boot device, and other housekeeping chores anyway. How are you going to load the chipset and other drivers? Once in the UEFI/BIOS and the graphics settings are disabled, it 'might' work as you want. Only way to tell if it is in the OS then would be the HDD LED or the mainboard DeBug LED showing AA, A0, or the CPU temperature depending on the UEFI/BIOS version.
