Hey Guys, NOT A BRIGHTNESS ISSUE. Had to get that out...before anyone responded. lol I've started to have a problem with my 2007 SR MBP. The screen starts to gradually fade out to this purplish color gray color. Most of the time it occurs when I open the lid and the computer wakes up from sleep or is powered on. Everything on the screen gets "washed away" although I know things are still working because the brightness and volume controls still work. Tapping the lid for a bit behind the LCD seems to "shake" the screen back to its normal state. However, sometimes it'll go right back to the fading out behavior. Unfortunately I don't have anything to capture it on video at the moment. I've taken pics but still shots don't really capture the problem well. Most of you would probably think its just a pic of my MBP with a boring background. And since I can't reproduce the problem on demand I have yet to take it in for an Apple Store. The best thing I could find online was the following: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWIc8Vf7QBE&feature=channel_page My screen looks like its doing something similar to the above Youtube video. Although it has nothing to do with an external monitor. Anyone else experience this problem before?
