    I bought a used powerbook 15" Ti 1ghz, that upon powering on, or coming out of sleep mode for about 15-20 secs the screen has a pink tint. What might cause this? Is it going to die? Is it something I should repair, or live with? Do these screens warm up? it doesnt bother me to much if it doesnt get worse or stop working.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    The backlight might be going bad.
    If the Backlight goes out entirely, it can be very hard to fix.
    I have the same computer, but dont get a pink tint on startup, its just much dimmer compared to the newer machines.
