How do i fix Macbook pro retina screen lines?

How do i fix Macbook pro retina screen lines? Little white lines appear everywhere, but i can still see the screen, but it is just uncomortable for the eyes to see them. They are like pixels...

I have the same problem, especially with Chrome gmail and evernote and it's driving me crazy. Anyone with a solution would be amazing!

  • Macbook Pro Retina screen black lines

    Hi everyone.
    I have had my macbook pro retina since june 2013. I have had two strange experiences with the screen, all of a suddent after the screen went to sleep (on battery) and i turn it on again I get the screen filled with black and gray lines like this
    and I cannot restore it to normal without turning it off and on again. I could take a screenshot though.
    So I was wondering if you knew what it is due to and what should I do? My laptop is fairly new and I still have warranty.
    It was purchased in New York but now I am in Copenhagen, Denmark.
    We do not have a proper apple store, but some "Apple stores" which are affiliated with them and they normally ship them to Netherlands for repairing. Should I bring it in and get it fixed? Also I can do that here in DK too even though it was bought in New York right?
    Hope someone can help me.

    Yes. Take it to the store and have it checked out.

  • How to get new Macbook Pro Retina (late 2013) to detect external monitor via HDMI?

    Hi everyone, this is my first Mac and for the most part it's been really, really wonderful.
    This is my first major glitch:  I cannot get it to detect my external display:  It is an ASUS PA248Q, manufactured Aug 2012.
    The HDMI cable according to my Amazon history is at least 1.3c from 2010,  "Fanatic Digital Imperial Series Gold-Plated HDMI Cable (6 feet)".
    It works with perfectly connecting an AmazonTV box to an old Samsung TV, with vivid clarity, unlike our cableTV signal.
    Just in case, I have a new HDMI cable on order, which claims to be of newest standards.
    The Macbook Pro Retina (late 2013) has the standard Intel Iris from the Haswell chips, as well as Nvidia GT 750M, the latter which I don't think has been used yet.
    The ASUS display says:  HDMI NO SIGNAL.
    I have tried shutting them down and replugging the cable.  I don't know what the ideal order is.  The Macbook Pro is plugged into AC power, as suggested.
    In System Preferences>Display, I press the Option key to select "Detect Displays" option (seriously unintuitive).
    I have also tried resetting the NVRAM:
    I shut the machine down.  Pressed the power button, then quickly held the quadruplet:  Option-Command-P-R  (a double handful) and waited for the machine to chime a 2nd time.  Tried to detect external display no luck.
    Next, I reset the SMC:
    I shut the machine down.  Then I pressed Shift-Control-Option-Power   for about 5 to 10s.  Then I turned on the machine normally.
    NVRAM & SMC steps were from an old youtube video, as the instructions I had did not explain how to do so clearly.
    Please let me know if I"m doing something wrong.
    Seems so exorbitant to pay $350 for Apple Care;  that's a the cost for a whole new cheap laptop.
    I will search the forums again.  If anyone answers this,  thank so much!

    Hello there, willr314.
    It sounds like you've covered most of the practical steps found in this Knowledge Base article:
    Apple computers: Troubleshooting issues with video on internal or external displays
    No video or no signal, image distortion, "snow," or flickering
    Check connections
    When using an external display be sure to check the following:
    If you're using an Apple notebook, confirm the AC power cable or adapter is securely connected to the computer and the cable providing power to the display is also secure. It is always good to have your notebook connected to AC power when an external display is in use.
    Confirm display adapters are fully seated in their respective connections and that they are supported models and for the computer and display. Refer to these articles to assist you with adapter compatibility and further configuration information:
    Monitor and Display Adapter Table
    About Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapters
    Apple Mini DisplayPort adapters: Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
    Thunderbolt ports and displays: Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
    Remove all display cable extenders, KVM switches, or other like devices and retest to determine if the issue is resolved.
    Try unplugging the video adapter or cable and then plug it back in.
    If more than one video adapter is in use (or "daisy-chained"), troubleshoot by using only one adapter.
    Example: A mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter connected to a DVI to HDMI adapter is an unsupported configuration because there is a series of adapters in use.
    If available, try using a different display and or adapter (or use a different connector by using DVI instead of VGA, for instance).
    Reset the system
    You can reset the Mac's parameter RAM and SMC.Reset the resolutionStart by resetting the Mac's parameter RAM. If the display does not come up, was previously set to an unsupported resolution, and still results in no video:
    Start up in Safe Mode.
    From the Apple () menu, choose System Preferences.
    Choose Displays from the View menu to open the preferences pane.
    Select any resolution and refresh rate that your display supports.
    Restart your computer.

  • Green tint to Macbook Pro Retina screen.

    I have a Macbook Pro Retina less than 2 months old, earlier today the screen started to get a green tint on everything. I already attempted adjusting the color profile, which didn't affect the greenness of the screen.

    Ok, the EXACT same thing happened to me, although I sneezed all over the screen (gross) and then wiped it off with a windex covered paper towel. Then followed up with a damp microfiber towel to remove smudges. There was no way that water could have gotten in nor the windex.
    So I raise you this question; did you use a microfiber cloth, and are you in a dry-cold or a dry-hot otherwise low humidity climate.
    The reason I ask, theoretically if you did use a microfiber, had the computer on, and rubbed back and forth across the screen several times, you may have created static electricity, which may have interfered with the screen.
    I found that after doing several power cycles (command+control+p+r+power) the green tint completely disappeared. I also noticed that the cat hair that flies around my house is not sticking to the screen anymore....
    Food for thought
    FYI purchased NOV/2014

  • Fall 2013 Macbook Pro Retina screen freezing and crashing

    lately, I have been experiencing some screen freezes on my Macbook Pro Retina 15''... The screen just freezes, including the mouse pointer and then it doesn't respond to anything. I just have to restart the machine again. This happens sometimes and not every day, but still a few times a week. I just do normal things on my mac while I get this problem.
    Also, just recently almost an hour ago, my screen just turned all white and it said "Your computer restarted because of a problem. Press any key to continue or a wait a couple minutes for it to reboot." This time, I was watching a movie when it happened.
    I have also verified the disk in disk utility, but no errors.
    What may be causing this issue? Hardware? Software? I also have applecare, but I'm eager to find out what's the problem before I hand it to the apple store.
    Thank you very much!

  • How to upgrade Lr3 & CS5 to be compatible with new Macbook Pro retina screen

    I believe that Adobe has recently released upgrades to Lightroom and CS6 that make them compatible with the retina screen.   First of all, is this correct and secondly, if I have Lr3 and CS5, how do I upgrade?   I know it's a dumb question.

    Yes, it is correct.
    The following include Retina support
    Photoshop CS6 13.0.2 (Perpetual license) and Photoshop 13.1 (Cloud members only)
    Lightroom 4.3 (Library and Develop modules)

    Either you pay to upgrade to Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4
    or you join the Creative Cloud for a monthly fee and get the upgrades included in your membership

  • Macbook Pro Retina Screen Resolution Issues

    I have just bought a retina display Macbook Pro (Early 2013) with OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion. 
    Before getting it, I did not realize what an effect it would have on the use of my existing programs, and had I known, I would have thought twice before switching from my non-Retina Macbook Pro. I have never had so many problems with a brand new computer. On my retina screen, programs such as Microsoft Office 2011, Adobe Creative Suite 5 and Acrobat Pro X run with an awful screen resolution and impossibile legibility. The pixelated graphics and image quality hurt my eyes, beyond the fact that I cannot see my lines, images and text properly in order to work with them.
    In these programs, the "Open in Low Resolution" button is enabled permanatly and cannot be changed as it's option is ghosted out. I do not know how to make it look better or what to do. I cannot work using this low resolution and this issue has affected my productivity.

    You have a new MBP you have 14 days to return/exchange, 90 days of free phone support, as well as 1 year at the store. Take advantage of this.

  • Macbook pro retina screen flicking problem

    I bought this 15 inches Macbook pro back in Nov, 2012. And I have the screen flicking problem in Dec.
    The problem is the same here listed on youtube. You can find hundres of them just by searching "retina flicker" on youtube.
    And I did a lot of researches on this. I had also gone to the Apple Store 2 times, one Genius Bar Staff told me this has to be a hardware problem and offer to fix my laptop, others said it might be a software based problem and adviced me to wait for the new system update. I don't have time for a long fixing so I chose waiting. That particular one who told me to wait for the next software update also encourage me to dig deep and tried to find the root cause by myself...and I did. I found my screen flicking problem could caused by cellphone inteference. And It seems that the Wi-Fi antena is also a key component here. If I turn off Wi-Fi completely, the flickering went away.
    Some solutions I found online
    1. It can caused by Enable Safari webGL. So disable webGL and turn off develop mode
    2. Disable displaycard auto switch in Power saving tab
    3. Close the lid put the sytem into sleep and re-open the lid
    4. stop using Wi-Fi. That's right people, try disable Wi-Fi!! It's the only working solution for me.
    5. It could be caused by CDMA cellphones including US Verizon brand cellphones and many others. GSM cellphones are OK. Try to turn off your cellphone or drive to a empty plaza and try to see your laptop still flickering at your car. Turn off your cellphone when You do this.
    What doesn't work
    reinstall OS
    go to Apple Store and change Logic Board (Someone reported that after logic board change, the problem came back after a while)
    Let me know if you guys have any findings, Thanks!!

    I'm sure that you've seen the problem with 'burn-in' and 'ghosting' on some MBP-R machines in threads on this forum. It doesn't seem to be an overwhelming problem, but some have reported it.
    Did you buy it from an Apple Store or online? Either way, you need to get tough with Apple. Tell them you need to keep your computer and, when they deliver a replacement to your local Apple Store, you'll bring it in for exchange. That's what they've been doing with most people that have had MBP-R problems - I've never heard of them requesting that you send your computer back before they will exchange. Did you contact your local Apple Store or was this response from an AppleCare phone conversation. If the latter, take it into the Apple Store, explain what you want to do, and I'm sure that they will work with you.
    Good luck,

  • How to approach a Macbook pro without screen

    I own a Macbook pro early 2008 with the well known Nvdia issue (black screen). Apple didn't want to repair it under the special program (Apple user since early 90's) so I went to a specialized company to reball the chip. Worked very well but not for a long time. But the problem came back, so again I have the black screen. I don't want to spent any money anymore on this terrible (but very expensive) product (and even any more on any Apple product).
    The Mac does start up and I can see it in my home network. But how to retrieve the data without a screen. I didn't switch on the possibility for sharing so that's no option. What are the possibilities to retrieve data from the hard disk.

    Two ways.
    1) If you can access it from your network just copy the data over to one of your other computer hard drives. That is if you ever setup sharing and can get to that data over the network.
    2) Take the drive out and connect it to another Apple computer, or a Windows computer that has a special program installed to read Mac formatted drives, and copy the data over. you will need a SATA to USB adapter or enclosure to do that. I suggest the adapter as they are more flexable for other things.
    You can also use that hard drive in another system if you chose to. That is after you copy your data off it. All you have to do is format it for Windows.

  • Can't open Adobe cs5.5 .dmg on a 15inch MacBook Pro Retina screen

    Hi there,
    Hopefully someone can help.
    I recently bought a 15inch retina screen new macbook pro after my old one started to die last week - I bought Adobe cs5.5 a few years ago and I'd really like to be able to install in on the new laptop so I can get on with my work. As there is no disc drive I downloaded the file from Adobe which took many hours and now as soon as I click on it it comes up with this.
    I tried to use the disc utility to do something with it but wasn't really sure what I needed to do and buggered up the first download and had to try and get it again. I haven't had this problem with my old laptop - i'd even updated the os to be running the same so I don't know why it's having a problem with the .dmg and as I haven't had the problem before I don't really know what to do. If someone could help me out I'd be super grateful as I do have client work I need to get on with.
    Thanks so much,

    Me thinks you have tried to connect to a shortcut folder and not a genuine folder.
    Note Mac OS X in Mac OS X 10.4 has 3 popular folder shortcut locations:
    The leftmost column of the Finder window.
    The horizontal toolbar on the top of the Finder window
    The translucent bar which can be anchored on the side or bottom of the screen known as the Dock. These are not true folder locations, but only locations for shortcuts. When you click on a folder for a volume that is not mounted, or is a folder which was deleted it will behave in this fashion. Often if you click on it the right fashion, it will change to a question mark.
    In addition if it is an alias to an existing folder that has no contents, it will behave this way from the three shortcut locations.
    If you right click instead of the left click a folder, it may think you want to do something to the folder which you can't do. Make sure your mouse button functions properly as a Primary button on Apple menu -> System Preferences -> Keyboard and Mouse.
    Also make sure Universal Access is not turned on as it too can cause funny behavior in the mouse click actions, in Apple menu -> System Preferences -> Universal Access.

  • MacBook Pro Retina screen cracked on it own while I was watching youtube.

    I purchased it on April 2014 from Executive Machines Dhaka, Gulshan Branch. Everything was working fine until 23 feb 2015. While me and my family were watching a youtube video on it, the screen started to crack from upper left side of the side. we all watched how the screen cracked from left to middle to the right.
    We all were in shock! In my entire life I have never seen such things. A screen cracked by it self!!! Anyway after that not the 24 feb, I went to dealer as I had free service of one year left. The guys at Executive Machines were shocked as well and said they never seen such things before and they will send the Mac to Singapore to get it checked. So did the paper work and left it with them. 3 weeks later, they notified me that Apple said NO!!
    So the fact here is, I didn't drop it nor damaged it in other means. 5 people in the house watched the whole thing live!!! If it was done me then there must have been damage marks, when I mac is fully fresh!!!! the saddest thing when I collected the Mac from Executive machines the screen started having black marks on the upper and lower side of the screen.
    This is the most shocking thing that ever happened in Tech using history and I keep wondering who's fault was it!!! Executive Machines received a mac with a mark on the screen and returned me with black marks and ''they said''  Apple said NO!!
    I tried to upload photos from 23 feb but something was wrong!!
    It would very nice If anybody from Apple contacts me and we can talk about the whole thing.

  • Have you had New MacBook Pro retina screens crack?

    I have a new MacBook Pro and all of a sudden the screen cracked. I haven't dropped or done anything to it. Has a anyone had that problem?

    You should buy a hard case to protect your mac book. The hard  case clips on to the Macbook pro 15 inch . I have a hard case and a soft "incase" as well, which i bought from the apple store for when i carry my Mac Book retina. I understand you can buy screen to also stick onto the front screen to protect the LCD.

  • Macbook Pro Retina Screen Problems

    In July 2012, I got a Macbook Pro with Retina display with a one year Apple Care plan.
    Within the past few months, shortly after my Apple Care ended, I have had a host of problems with the display. Occasionally during use, the entire scren will kind of blank or static out, and just show a ton of gray stripes and eventually flicker back to normal. Also, there are two tiny divits or chips in the screen. The thing is, there was never anything done to prompt these. One day I just opened it, and the first one was there, and a few months later the second one.
    Because these are problems I have read about frequently (not to mention the image burning after I close certain programs that has been going on since I got the computer), even though my Apple Care expired, will Apple still repair or replace this, or am I totally out of luck?
    Any help given would be really appreciated!
