    This started up yesterday and was not fixed by a reboot. I can see the screen and it is not frozen or gradual. Simply the screen has a grey tint over it. If a take a screenshot and look at it on my iMac, it looks fine. It doesn't obscure anything, but it is pretty annoying. Anyone else have this problem? And solutions?
    Thanks, Magick.

    might be your backlight is acting up or dying

    Well the backlight buttons work and the screen changes brightness fine. It isn't dull or anything, just has a grey/whitish tint to it..

    well the backlight lamp does not mean the buttons that turns the brightness up or down its just part of the LCD Screen

    Same Problem of Greyed Out Screen

    I'm having the same problem as MajickJam. Screen occasionally greys out on 2007 MB Pro. Running Lion but otherwise pretty vanilla, standard Apple software. Grey out problem doesn't seem to have any pattern to it...like certain apps or point and clicks. Any ideas?
