just got my imac back from the genius bar after having to replace the internal hard drive (2007 ma876LL/A). now the screen has a blue tint and looks pixulated everywhere there should be white. i've searched for a solution but have only been able to find this problem with people on the macbook pros and the solutions given (click display or put it in the menu bar) dont work. not sure if it matters but they also installed leopard as the OS. any thoughts on how to fix this??

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Have you tried going into System Preferences > Display and then re-calibrating your iMac's display?

    I see nothing wrong with the picture you posted, I don't see a blue tint. That could just be because I'm on my iPhone. If you go into your color preferences (System Preferences > Displays then click on the color tab, I believe) what does it show? Is there an "iMac 709" setting selected?

     

    This is based off memory. I will check my iMac in a sec so I can try and provide better assistance.

    What are your color preferences set to?

     

    System Preferences > Displays > Color

    And have you gone through the calibrating process again?

    That's unfortunate, best of luck.

    Just had to do this on an iMac with a newly installed hard drive and OS.

    "Expert mode" in the calibration settings is where you need to go. Follow the instructions and with a bit of trial and error you should get it sorted. Took me about 2 mins once I'd started fiddling.

    I'm no mac expert but managed to get this problem solved.

    Good luck
