Can you post your images within the body of your question or make a fresh answer.


thanks for your help, this notebook already down in soundcard after 1 year, and I just found my macbook pro retina display with a white line display which bought only for 4 months, apple QC is really poor, why still buy it?


We have quite a few macs both desktops & laptops. While we do have our problems, rarely would I say it was a QC issue. Our users are hard on the gear and we push these systems with heavy app loads. I can tell you we had Windows based systems which didn't hold up as well. I think you just had some bad luck here.

Often when you see color stripes the driver logic within the LCD unit are damaged. To prove the issue is within the display the image should be OK using an external monitor.

Sadly, these display units are not easy to repair. I would strongly recommend just replacing the complete lid unit while a bit more expensive a lot easier to do. Here's the IFIXIT guide: MacBook Air 11" Late 2010 Display Assembly Replacement.

I have the same problem with you a couple weeks ago and got my screen replaced by Apple because it was a hardware problem.
