    A hefty whack makes it go (usually) but it's getting worse and worse. Does anyone else have this problem?

    same thing here. i tried to have it fixed under the white splotch recall but mine was outside of the three year window.

    they offered depot repair for $300 to fix anything and everything wrong with it (through the Apple store). i declined for now.

    there are a number of threads on the apple discussion forums regarding this issue.

    Mine has just been repaired for the same issue. The whole screen was replaced. Of course, I can't test it as the repair centre didn't send my power adapter back and the battery it totally flat. :rolleyes:

    One good thing is that the battery should be calibrated now. :)


    What spec are you machines?
    I wonder if we have the same...
    Mine's a 15" 1.5GHz (Model A1095)

    That is a POORLY MADE PHOTOSHOP IMAGE. Better luck next time.

    Why do you say that?

    2 other people saying we have / had similar problems?

    They MIGHT have problems, but if you know how to manipulate pictures, you would see that the picture is not genuine.

    I've been using Photoshop since version 3. But I've also had a PB with the same problem.
    You're comment is totally uncalled for.

    mine has that problem as well and as the technote says, they *may* extend the program and provide repairs "as needed". as of right now im not in the place to shell out $300 for something they may cover down the road.

    and i would say that our problem is not a typical problem for these models but it's not uncommon. as for a "bad photoshop job," what could possibly be anyone's motivation for creating a fake picture of a problem their having and then asking people for advice?

    I assure you it's not doctored - I took it just 30mins ago using my phone.

    Thanks for your input anyway.

    It was outside the repair programme so I just lived with it. Like I lived with the display glitch. Other things happened so I was forced to get it repaired. I was hoping they'd extend the repair programme as the serial number for my PB was only just outside the range.
