So I replaced the cable display unfortunately it did not change anything, this is so weird because sometime the screen is absolutely perfect, so I still don’t want to change the screen

Hook it up to an external monitor and see if the problem persists.

Also Apple offers a “Flat Rate Repair” on machines without impact or liquid damage. It costs $357 in Texas with shipping and tax included. They will fix any and all problems for that price but you have to contact corporate Apple directly.

What is your purchase date?

With an external screen there is absolutely no problem

I live in France, I went to an apple store yesterday and they told me that it would cost 700euros to replace the screen

My warranty (1year) went off in august :(

If you say it is fine at certain angles then it might as well be the display cable. I would try changing that out first. If that doesn’t work, make sure the cables are secured and plugged in tightly. Lastly, if those two things do not work for you then a new display might be necessary.

@mayer Ideas?

I didn’t expect an answer so fast ;)

I forgot to add that, but there is no stipe when the screen is black or very dark colour, like when you open Netflix

Hello Thibaut,

Have you been able to change the cable?

I have the same problem and my warranty was over 3-4 months ago.

Keep us posted!

Hi

I changed it but nothing changed

So I changed the screen

But check on internet because apparently this problem could be taken in charge by Apple as it happens to many people, for me as I had already open the computer It couldn’t have worked

Hello,

I gave my macbook to service on last Thursday and they called me today and told me that the problem was in the display screen itself. They checked the wires, connections etc but could not find a problem. Then decided the problem was the screen. It is approx. 450€ here in Turkey but the guy did not recommend me to replace the screen at this point. He told me that I should wait until the screen goes completely black, then I should give it to service for the backlight replacement issue.

The funny part is, even they could not define the root cause for this problem!

Anyway, I do not know how long I can continue using my device because it effecting all the video playing/color displaying processes.
