    Hi,

    I have a weird problem in which pixels are stuck for some time and then they are released and everything goes to normal again. I tried to massage the display and run an epilepsy triggering videos from youtube to release these pixels, it helped but they are coming back all the time. I cannot reproduce this issue, so it could be a week or two in which everything works fine, then it happens again.

    Would Apple replace my display? I have two more months for my Applecare service, but I cannot reproduce the issue. It could be that when I go there, I have a perfect display..

    Thanks

    If it’s a dodgy GPU it should show up on an Apple hardware test. I don’t think its the screen itself though from that description.

    If that shows all the time that’s some serious pixel degradation, and that’s what it looks like, Apple will replace under AppleCare.

    I would take these images into the store with the system and see what Apple says.

    OP:

    You didn't tell us HOW OLD your MBP is.
    Do what jerryk suggests above.
    DON'T WAIT.
    Just... do it.

    Yeah I would go anyway. I was just curious if anybody else had a similar problem. My rMBP would be 3 years old in May. It's a mid 2014 machine (received it May 2015).

    So they replaced the logic board. Let's hope it helps. They said it was a faulty graphic card
