    Just now I tested my late 2013 rmbp 256G version, a same rentention problem, but it is not very obvious.

     

    Can anyone tell me how this would affect the ordinary daily use, and will this be more sever as time goes by?

     

    Thanks, my mac is still within the 14 days, so I am thinking about whether to return it.

    The image retention could get severe 6–12 months from now. Many people report the image retention was slight at the beginning then severe months later.

    Oh MY...

     

    I heard that Samsung display would be better and is more likly free of image retention, but how can I know that I would exchange one with Samsung display.(the code in terminal does not work in late 2013)

     

    Return and test until the one without this problem?

     

    THX.

    Dear Ladies and Gentleman

     

    Maybe I missed that point but what is the proper way to test for image retention. I found the following link but not sure how to interpret it (https://discussions.apple.com/message/20618248#20618248):

     

    http://iva-soft.com/gray/

     

    All I see is a checker board where the /white/ boxes in the /first row/ are half gray/white.

     

    But nothing else  changes during the 5 minutes. And if press the "Change Backround" after the test a grey screen pops up.

     

    What does that all mean?

    Does the late 2013 MacBook Pro retina 13 inch (still) suffer from image retention/ghosting/burn-in?

  • MacOSX10.6 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thanks this clarifies a lot.

     

    However, following the advice given in:

     

    https://discussions.apple.com/message/23529596#23529596

     

    ==

    System Preferences -> Displays -> Color -> Open Profile (opens ColorSync Utility) -> scroll down to -- and click on -- 'mmod' / Apple display make and model information

    ==

     

    reveals in my case:

     

    ==

    Manufacturer: 00000610

    Model: 0000A019

    Manufacturer Date: CCD71000

    ==

     

    I quote the guy nlra:

     

    ==

    On every 15" Ivy Bridge rMBP I have managed to test, A00E correlated to Samsung, and A00F correlated to LG, every time.

    ==

     

    But what does A019 equate to?

    Can we please elobarte how to test for the hurn in syndrome?

     

    It the following a legit test?

    Try this test instead. It's the one that's traditionally been used by users for the IR problem.

  • MacOSX10.6 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thanks. I have the LG screen then according to the code.

     

    I do not think I suffer from the yellow tint but still wondering  what is all the fuss about IR/ghosting/burn in.

     

    Is the following a valid test:

     

    http://iva-soft.com/gray/

     

    What should happen if the screen is without defects?

     

    Thanks

  • MacOSX10.6 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thanks. Very much appreciated.

     

    The link inside the following link  is broken though:

     

    http://www.mitchmalone.name/retina-test/

     

    So not really clear to me how a screen with IR problems would look like.

     

    Anyway, performing the 10 minutes test reveals a screen similar to the screen shown in the following link BUT WITHOUT the checkboard:

     

    http://launchpadmcquack.com/2013/macbook-pro-with-retina-issues/

     

    It seems to me my LG screen is okay then.

    I just tried that inner link myself and found it being blocked by NoScript in Firefox. If you're using some JavaScript control, bypass it and allow the JavaScript to run; it seems to work.

     

    Once the resulting checkerboard image has been allowed to sit for a while, if you close the web page it ran in, you may see a ghostly image of it where the browser window used to be. That's IR.

    My test, which the Apple Store Genius was able to reproduce, was even more simple.  Their IR test didn't show the problem but this dead-simple was is:

      

    1. On Desktop #1, open Safari/Chrome/Firefox
    2. Wait 2-3 minutes
    3. Now, swipe over to the Dashboard space or swipe up to Mission Control

     

    In step 3 you'll clearly see an echo/ghost/burn-in of what you had on the screen in #1.  The Genius was totally dumbfounded that their test didn't show the IR but this one did.  Kinda makes you think that IR test they run is loaded...

     

    I just reitarate that Apple's policy here is a total load.  This is a systemic failure in displays and they should be replacing them, no questions asked, regardless of warranty.  I'm really sad that the class action lawsuite got thrown out, that's really my only recourse (legal) at the moment since Apple won't help me.

     

    And yes, I could call AppleCare and yell at them, but that's not the point -- Apple, a company who normally does right by the consumer, is totally screwing us here.
