    Screen Flicker On Login (Monterey 12.7.5)

    Howdy, I just got a refurbished MB Pro 2015 and noticed upon login the screen flickers twice before taking me into my account. My last unit didn't do this so naturally I'm concerned if this is signaling me of a potential ssd drive issue in the future? I'm running MacOS Monterey 12.7.5 and just...

    iPad Pro iPad Pro 11” (M4): Not able to answer call when MoreSpace option is enabled on Display.

    Hi all, As per subject I found this strange behaviour (always replicable) on my iPad PRO 11” M4. I suspect that the problem is much more widespread also on other iPad. When Stage Manager is TURNED ON, and the More Space option is enabled from Settings/Display/Display Zoom, iPad is receiving...

It's been working fine since we got it, but today I noticed there is a vertical dim line a few pixels wide exactly in the middle of the screen running all the way from the top to the bottom. First thing we did was reboot it, line still there...

    New Displays only with Thunderbolt 5

    I am new here and would like to start with a thought. The Studio Display is really nice. It can't do much, but it looks very good and thanks to Samsung we know that it's not as expensive as we all thought at first. It's also virtually unique on the market in terms of build quality. The Pro...

    Resolved MacBook Pro display bottom peeling? Additional advice?

    Hello all. I got one of the new M3 Pro MacBook Pros recently and less than a month after purchase, the bottom patch connecting the display to the main body seems to have detached itself.

    Do M3 MBPs use true 10-bit panels?

    I think there's consensus that the Pro Display XDR is a true 10-bit panel. In other words, in theory, it does not perform temporal dithering/FRC (Frame Rate Control) on the image. With that in mind, if you look at the marketing for the M3 MBPs, it mentions the following: XDR (Extreme Dynamic...

    Has anyone paired 2 Studio Displays with Pro XDR?

    I am looking to turn my single Pro Display XDR into a 3 monitor setup and was considering adding on new Studio Displays on either side. For anyone that has done this, does the shorter height or lower quality difference throw you off at all from the XDR? Any issues in general? Please upload...

    No backlight screen when booting Macbook Pro 13" mid 2014

    When I start up my macbook pro the screen stays black (I can see it is doing something when shining through logo with flashlight) after a few seconds (when the horizontal line is building up) the screen lights up. And everything is OK. When in reboot mode, recovery mode and also safe mode, I do...

    MacBook5,1 - Display hangs on frame before bootmgr loads

    So I was just using Rufus to make a bootable UEFI:NTFS Windows 11 USB, and the display refused to respond, but the backlight was fine. Any way to fix this? I might need help from @tsialex for any BootROM related issues.

    So I have a 2014 MBP retina that has held up great for almost 10 years now. Over the past few years the display has started doing something where it goes dark except for the presence of the backlight (producing a very dark gray screen that is barely distinguishable from total black when the...
