Okay, before anyone says it, I did a search, but got tired of trying to weed through the haystack to find the answer to my question. Don't get me wrong, I love search, but sometimes it leads nowhere. Now, here's to my question/inquiry. Back in March, I took my MBP SR 3,1 into the Apple Store for some display issues. There were some dark grey splotches all along the righthand side of my screen. They sent it in, replaced the logic board and I got it back in a couple of days. Then, upon using it at home, I noticed that splotches were still there. The didn't actually fix the display. Great. Mistakes happen. No worries. I go back to the store, and they send it out again. The repair is a new display. I get is back, and all seems well. But low and behold, after an hour of use, the display begins to flicker like mad. So...yep, you guessed it...I went back. They send it out again and I get it back in three days. New inverter cable. Everything seems to be in working order. I breathe a sigh of relief. Until yesterday when I notice the new diaplay they put in back in March has now developed the beginnings of the same dark grey splotches on the same place in the screen. What are the odds? And for the record, I baby this thing. I even have rules for my wife to follow when she uses it. I mean, I don't exactly have $2500 to throw around, so I take as good care of it as I can. So I trek back to the Apple Store and explain to the Genius that since it happened before, I assume that (like the last time) it will spread and get worse. Now, all he said he could was to log the problem in the system and if it did get worse, I would have the initial case on file. So has anyone dealt with this situation before and was it indeed fruitful to have what amounts to a trouble ticket in the system before going back with a larger problem? Eh, I don't know. I just do know from experience that it will get worse and am getting tired of having to bring it in. Any thoughts are appreciated and sorry for the length.
