    Hi all - new here.

    I've posted this on the apple forums also, but thought I'd post here too incase anyone can help!

    Basically, when my screen is on a black background there are weird red blotches running across my screen - these disappear on a white background.

    I'll add some pictures below.

    It's starting to get quite annoying now! Anyone come across this before or have any ideas what causes it?

    Cheers guys.

    I think my screen did that (before it had to be replaced due to a traumatic hit right beneath the Apple logo). Mine wasn't red it was more of a yellowish color.

    I have a feeling something is getting in behind the Apple and causing the discoloration. Either that or the logo is putting pressure on the LCD display. Push on the Apple and see what happens. Check to see if your Apple logo is getting loose. Mine is a late 2008 unibody Macbook.

    I have a similar tint showing on my macbook 2012. It happened overnight and nothing was placed on top of the screen or anything weird like that. Did you get yours fixed @vs4drutg?
