  • Macbook Pro 13" Screen went Black - Can only see when plugged into another display! HELP!

    My MacBook Pro's screen went black last night and now when it turns on it stays black. I plugged it into my tv through the mini display port and I can see everything fine on the tv but the screen on my laptop is black. Everything else seems to be working fine. Any advice that doesn't involve taking to Genius Bar??? Already tried booting in safe mode, resetting the PRAM and NVRAM. Need to fix this ASAP. Thanks!!

    Please make a Genius Appointment and take it in for service.

  • My macbook pro's screen display has suddenly gone into a strange colour setting where everything appears in a kind of infrared colour palette an I can;t seem to change it back.  It's the same for all icon and websites, does anyone know how to restore?

    Wow!  I think I had this same issue just last night.
    I was cleaning my macbook pro retina on the outside.  Then I opened it up and was wiping dust off the monitor and I can't pinpoint exactly when, but the colors changed suddenly.  It looked super strange, it was like green halo's and it looked worse when looking at it at an angle.  Of course I took no pictures!!!  I was freaking out that my 2 grand laptop was busted and I somehow removed a protective film or something.
    But I digress...  The image looked very green and spacey, it was almost a neat effect.  After about 5 minutes it started to look a little more digital though.  There were straight lines of this halo effect on the edges and top.  After about 10 minutes it turned into a predominate issue with the blacks on screen.  I could open a web browser and it was unnoticable on a white background.  After about 15 minutes, you could only barely see the green cloud effect if you looked at the monitor from an extreme angle.  After about 20 minutes, it was completely back to normal, I almost feel paranoid like I see a halo or something strange.  But I believe that might be all in my head now.
    So yerp, lemme know what you guys figure out.

  • My MacBook Pro's screen just started randomly going blank, sometimes white sometimes black, and I won't be able to do anything no matter what key I press unless I restart it via the power button and even then I have a few minutes before it happens again

    MacBook Pro's screen randomly goes blank (white sometimes dark), wont be able to do anything no matter what key i press unless i turn it off and on via the power button.

  • When starting the macbook pro, the screen was flashing black and white, then to color to color, any suggestion to fixing this problem?

    When i am starting the macbook pro, the screen was flashing black and white, and then to color to color, and the whole process repeat all over again, is there any suggestion in solving this, or is there no way to solve this and i need to bring it to the apple support?

    Sounds as if you're having a problem with your GPU (graphics card). Only Apple can diagnose and fix this, so the best thing would be to take your machine into your local Apple Store or an AASP.

  • MacBook Pro Blank Screen (Built - in & External) - continued

    This thread is a continuation of [MacBook Pro Blank Screen (Built - in & External)|http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1478474]. The thread was getting too long and some browsers were timing out.
    Thank you,

    I brought mine into the Apple Store last night. I had not left it for service last time as I had not cleared it of some confidential client data. This time, I encountered a much more knowledgeable Genius who seemed to have heard of the Nvidia problem.
    So, my MBPro is on its way to the depot. It will apparently be $310 total, flat fee, supposedly ready within a week.
    I do expect Apple will do the right thing eventually and extend warranties for the defective Nvidia subsystem. However, I can't wait until they do. I need my Macbook Pro to be functional.
    Again, my strong advice...
    *At the first hint you are getting this problem, turn on screen sharing.*
    If you have this specific Nvidia problem, you will still be able to access the machine remotely, which can be incredibly valuable in terms of saving data before you send it for repair. When you hand it over, you will initial a statement saying you have backed up your data and Apple is not responsible if the machine is wiped during repairs. Set up screen sharing so you can operate the machine during the Nvidia failure.

  • Macbook pro as [MacBook Pro Blank Screen ] with voided Warranty ?

    I have the same issue as told in this post.
    MacBook Pro Blank Screen (Built - in & External)
    However, I have manually replace my HDD to another. Since my HDD die before and want a bigger one. And I think my warranty have voided.
    So does it include in the replacement program of the logic board with free of charge ?
    Will apple help me do the replacement if I'm able to charge that fee even my warrany voided ?

    It really doesn't make a bit of difference whether someone else had an experience similar to yours. It's still up to AppleCare to deal with it.
    But you can certainly waste your time here for whatever you think you'll find. Good luck.

  • My Macbook pro desktop screen is white.

    My Macbook pro desktop screen is white. I had it hooked up to my TV and it went white. Everything works except the desktop is white. The launch pad works and the top menu.

    Hi Maclover222,
    Thanks for visiting Apple Support Communities.
    If you only see a white screen on your MacBook Pro, the steps in this article can help:

    I'd recommend starting with these steps:

    You can reset the Mac's parameter RAM and SMC.

  • Why do I have this small white dot on my macbook pro display screen?

    I have this white dot on my macbook pro display screen. It doesn't go away. Anybody knows what it is? Any suggestions?

    Because the developer needed to create the two versions separately and has chosen to charge for both.

  • My macbook pro's screen constantly goes dim. I have set the energy saver settings for battery to 7 mins but it goes dim if the period of inactivity is less than 7 mins. Please help.  MBP 13" OSX 10.6.8 (2011)

    Doesn't sound like it.  It sounds like you're being logged-off.
    Does your Mac go through the complete Restart cycle -- black screen, gray and/or blue screen momentarily, startup chime, etc? 
    If you're not sure, do a Restart just to watch the process; the next time the problem occurs, see if it's the same.
    You need to know which it is, as these will have very different causes, and different places to look for a solution.

  • Recently purchased a Macbook Pro with screen of retina of 13,3 inches. My question is, can I install the new Final Cut Pro X , is capable of withstanding the app? Or that Final Cut is convenient to install?

    Recently purchased a Macbook Pro with screen of retina of 13,3 inches. My question is, can I install the new Final Cut Pro X , is capable of withstanding the app? Or that Final Cut is convenient to install?

    Generally any Mac made since 2009 can handle FCP X.
    Your small screen is not ideal unless you are young and have good vision.
    However, you needn't ask whether or not your computer is suitable as you can find out yourself by downloading the free 30 day trial.

    In addition, to get you up to speed with FCP X, you can also watch 2 hours of free video tutorials here

    Do just that. Connect it iTunes and restore it as it appears there is a software issue with the device.

  • Can I use a macbook pro 2 screen with a macbook pro 3?

    my girlfriends 2007 macbook pro 3 screen stopped working yesterday so we bought a 2006 macbook pro 2 off craigslist and found out that it wont run mavricks so I was wondering if the screens were backwards compatable, like if I use the screen from the 2 and put it on the 3?
    They are both the same size 15"
    thank you

    You might look at iFixit.com and Powerbookmedic.com and see if the two different MBP displays have the same part number.
