Retina Macbook Pro Ghosting


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else encountered ghosting (image retention) on a retina macbook pro? It wasn't bad at first but soon after I had the thing for over a year I started noticing if I'm on a page for more than 5 minutes like watching a Youtube video non-full screen, it will burn in the window frame and text for a good 30 seconds or so. If I open Text Edit I can clearly see YouTube burned in. I was thinking of sending it back but it's out of warranty and I don't have applecare.

I have had my screen replaced by Apple. They use Samsung and LG displays.

The problem only occurs the LG display they use for the rMBP.

The Samsung screen is a bit more yellow-ish

If you want to know what screen you have use this command line in Terminal:

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

It will return:
