People who know the 15 inch burn in issue are waiting to see if the 13 inch retina suffers with the same issue. If anyone could check it out that would be great.

Can you tell me what display you have ? Is it LG (prefix LP) or samsung (prefix LSN)

type this into terminal:
ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

Thank you

This command doesn't work on the new 13. no error message, you just get the prompt back

Try running it without the grep part and redirect the output into a file. You'll probably have to make some educated guesses as to where the panel info is and what it means. It might be fun. Sure someone here will figure it out.

apple hiding this means that they know whats going on ;-) if they are actually hiding then this is a pathetic low for the premium company. imagine how much time we are wasting on this.

if only apple could make an official statement and admit that the 15 inch is a mess and the will fix it then people would take it easy.

Um... no :rolleyes:
They haven't hidden anything. It just only works on that particular machine.

Go back to computer school, champ

not so fast....

It works on a 13 inch regular pro, 13 inch air and 15 inch regular pro, plus the 15 retina.

It's odd that it doesn't work on only the 13 retina (at least on the machines I have access to)

PS: One of our devs thinks this is actually an OSX issue. In other words the installed display is returning a value that OSX doesn't understand. Probably will be fixed in the next OS update. Has happened before with devices

Are you sure you are not using an external display while checking?:)

Try also this command:

ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

15" retinas don't have burn-in. You have no idea what the term means.

Burn in was a problem that affects older displays that used phosphor coated screens, which would literally retain a physical "burned-in" image if left displaying the same thing for a long time. It's permanent. The chemical composition of the phosphors is changed with no real remedy. Once it's there, your screen is as good as ruined.

The displays of some rMBPs have image retention caused by a static buildup which disappears after a few minutes if the image on the screen changes or the display is turned off. I say some, because mine has shown no sign of it yet.

Those of you who have the 13 rMBP would you kindly mind posting a pic. with the highest scaling resolution enabled as well as the 2nd highest scaling? Thanks.

No. I'm going to use and enjoy this device, and not drive myself crazy. I suggest everyone else do the same.
Worry about things that really affect how you use it (if any).

13 retina burn in? yes.

Greetings!

I just joined the forum here to confirm, some 13" mbpr's will for sure have this issue.



The usual ioreg terminal command with the grep/sed doesn't return anything, so here's the IODisplayEDID line from ioreg just piped to more.

namor:~ ohesnoes$ ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | more
| | | | | "IODisplayEDID" = <00ffffffffffff00061014a0000000000a160104a51d1278026fb1a7554c9e250c505400000001010101010101010101010101010101e26800a0a0402e60302036001eb31000001a000000fc00436f6c6f72204c43440a202020000000100000000000000000000000000000000000100000000000000000000000000000008d>


For the record, this is a Core i7 machine, with a 512GB hard drive, so am very likely going to ask Apple for help here. $2500 for a fancy pants display that out of the box has teh suck? :confused:

I'd be curious if the command still works on 15" rMBP's after the 2.0 update.
