If you are in europe or the UK you should get at least 2 years as standard due to EU consumer law. The UK gives you 6 years for any technical failures (apple hate this and certainly do not advertise it well).Hello everyone,
I bought a used MacBook Pro with retina and it has a ghosting problem mid 2012, it's out of warranty, will Apple still replace it? Or is it out of pocket
I bought this computer as soon as it came out. I found that I had one of the displays with the ghosting problem. It took about 6 to 8 months to convince Apple to replace the clamshell. The finally did it but it wasn't easy.
I recall there being a terminal command that would let you know if you had an LG or Samsung display. At that point it was the LG displays that were causing the problem.
Even if you bought the computer secondhand and the original owner purchased AppleCare, the AppleCare can transfer over to the new owner. If that's the case then you should have no problem but if it isn't it would probably be and out of pocket cost. I don't think Apple ever acknowledged that the ghosting was a real problem. Still, it's worth a trip to the Apple Store.
Do you have Applecare?Hey, its gonna cost you the minute the warrenty expires. based on my experiences with my old mac.
Can you tell me your process?
which apple store did you go to?
Do you have Applecare?
Crapy situation for sure.Not covered, since there wasn't enough people that had the problem! and didn't issue a recall for it because some people have the stinken samsung display, now it will cost $642 for this display, Great! Now What!, Im not gonna pay that, gonna call apple now. On the plus side My phone screen is getting replaced
Nice!, did you go ahead with the repair?, sorry i didn't give you an update.Self update. Went to apple and the news when from bad to slightly better. The genius verified the issue and proceeded to tell me it would be $700+. After talking a little more he offered me another option of sending it out to Apple instead of in store. He told me that was $310 and they would look over the whole laptop for any other issues and fix those too ( find that part hard to believe). It would take 3-5 business days. Also includes 90 day warranty. Now that isn't bad however I still think I will fix it myself. I can get top cover and lcd for $300 ish then sell the screen I still have for probably at least $130.
Going to the Apple Store again for ghosting, and for the recall, and my fan
Nope, still not covered! We had a huge argument, and he was constantly asking why didn't you bring it back within the first year of warranty. And when i had to replace the fan that was like $80. My next stop is massionville Apple store next week.Let me know what happens....are you having problems with yours that your going in for the recall...as far as i was aware it was just for the graphics issues. I haven't really heard anyone having issues with the 650m. I was surprised it had a recall.
