My macbook pro retina has a bunch of lines with a small black spot on the left side of the screen. If I press gently on the back side of the screen, it clears up the lines some where I can see the desktop a lot better. Does this sound like something that a screen replacement would fix? I am thinking that this couldn't be anything to do with the logic board or the cable. But I would hate to replace the screen and find out otherwise. Thanks for any advice anyone can offer.

My first question to you.... Is your retina MacBook Pro still under warranty? If so, make an appointment with your local Apple store genius and have them diagnosis it for you. If the machine is still under warranty and the screen is defective, Apple will replace it.

Has this computer received a hard bump or was it dropped? If so…maybe something got knocked loose.

Not that we are aware of.I was just thinking that if something got knocked loose, pressing on the back of the screen a little would not clear that up. There is also a thin horizontal line all the way across the screen I just noticed.

Does anyone else use this computer? If not…then you should be the best peson to know.;)

Stop thinking…anything can happen.;) Something could be worn or broken…and by pressing…you may be reestablishing contact between things that otherwise are not making contact (because of something being loose, worn, or broke).

You are most likely correct…but we like to leave no stone unturned.:)

I would take it in to the Apple Store anyway (if there's one near you). They'll tell you what is wrong and probably what happened (I'm blaming the cat until I hear otherwise) and what it will cost to fix. They may possibly fix it if it looks to be their defect, even OOW. Or not, sometimes its not up to them. Worth the journey for the info.
