    PROBLEM: I replaced my cracked LCD on my MBA but now it is dim, has a limited viewing angle and a red-ish tint. I tried another replacement display and had the same problem. Any techs out there run into this after a replacement screen?

    What I have tried:
    1. Adjusting the brightness #fail
    2. Calibrating the monitor with a screen calibration device #fail

    My concerns:
    1. Perhaps I installed the first plastic layer behind the screen backwards, could this cause this?
    2. I installed the layers in the wrong order?
    Current order, starting with the one touching the screen moving back. 1. non tabbed reflective-ish sheet 2. tabbed hazy sheet 3. tabbed hazy sheet with thin line around the entire edge

    Any advice?

    I had installed the first layer backwards. Amazing how flipping that one layer made everything look perfect.
