    Macbook Screen Problems.
    Hi i was hoping someone would be able to help. I recently repaired a macbook just switching out the hd and reinstalling osx. Before i did all this i assumed the discoloration was due to a bad os or hd or i have no idea. When all was said and done i ended up with the picture below if i move the screen the colors brighten or lighten whatever they feel like doing at the time. I have moved the screen once and it worked till i turned it off. I was hoping someone would be able to tell me if its just a loose cable which is repairable or a bad gpu or anything at all! I have searched almost everywhere and only see things on black and white lines or blinking screens! Anywho thanks in advance for the help!

    Specs:
    MBP 17inch, Intel Core i7 2,6 Ghz (Boost: 3,2 Ghz), 8GB DDR3 1066Mhz, Nvidia GeForce 330M
    Its a hardware issue. I think your backlight has problems. The screenshot looks fine on my macbook btw. Google for backlight repairs and you'll get a lot of solutions.

    Could you make a photo to be sure?
    Life longer, save some headache, get yourself a mac

    hah i actually just noticed the pictures didnt show anything useful just now. its not the back light bc its perfectly lit and that is fine its just when i move the colors will to change to random shades of green. at this present moment im using it fine with random green pixel dots all over the place im hoping its just a bad cable and i think thats what it is. These screws are impossible though!
