Hi all - my MacBook has recently developed a problem, and I was wondering if anyone could help or had experienced similar issues.


When I'm viewing blacks on my screen there is a patch in the middle of the screen that instead displays a strange red/brown hue instead of pure black.
The area is perhaps 6 inches in total length, runs horizontal around the centre of the screen and is perhaps ~1cm thick, there are then some other splodges of the same colour just below.


However, the marks aren't visible at all when on a white screen/other colours - it looks fine then.


Has anyone got any ideas what this may be?


I'll try and get a photo of it tomorrow.
