    Hello,

    I have a MacBook5,1 and when viewing some webpages and using photoshop some light gray colors look like a light orange. what does that mean. also the macbook is out of warranty.

    a html color code for eg that comes up orange like that should be a very light gray. #FBFBFB and when i plug in an external display it does the same.

    What colour profile are you using? Check in System Preferences > Displays > Color.

    What about choosing another profile (deselect "Show profiles for this display only" or calibrating the display? Does that change anything?

    I have tried using the other ones that are listed but they make the screen very blue, and well calibrating it also does not fix it.

    I have used some of them tools but i can never get it right. the light gray mainly this color #FBFBFB it seems to stay orange like no matter what i do.

    I tired to take a photo but because its a very light color its does not show up on the cam.

    Does any one know could it be a software issue or hardware? I tested this with some MacBook Pro's and iMac's at a reseller and found them todo the same thing.

    (here is a page that will have a box with the color i am talking about, it should look like a nice clean light gray. but on the mac's i looked at make it look more of a yellowly orange like color.

    (note it is a very light color so you have to look hard ;)

    Looks grey to me, whether with the default profile or my custom profile (JC Display set to 2.2 gamma).

    After been in the city and playing with the file i uploaded to my site, on all the Mac's at at the 2 resellers. I have found that the Macs using the ATI its fine and all the Macbook's and Macbook Pro's using the NVIDIA GeForce its not fine.

    I even showed the rep that was there and he was like wow, we both had a play with the color profiles and after a little while he went out the back to make a phone call and when he came back he told me to go to http://apple.com/feedback and click on the Mac OS X and file a bug report. So i have done so and have put a lot of information regarding this.
