This sounds weird but need some help from the pros out there.

 

I'm not sure what's going on but my screnn flashes and the dock disapears then comes back and all is right.  Frequency is about every 2-3 minutes.  I'm farely profienct at Unix based systems and Apple products in general most things i can fix so here is what I've done in the last 12hrs before it began:

 

I did a typical software update and it was only iTunes, OS X update.  I began some research on if I should upgrade from Lion to ML and found that if it's not for me downgrade by using my bootable image I have of Lion.  I found my image and put it on my desktop then doubleclicked it to make sure the file is still good.  I woke up this morning and the flashing began.  I've rebooted twice to 'kill' any processes which my be causing the issue.  So far no luck.

 

Few questions:

 

1.) Anyone every have this problem?

2.) If I restore from time machine from yesterdays backup will I lose a few iTunes purchases I just did this morning?

 

Any help is appreciated....

    Update....

     

    It's happening when I play a song from iTunes...  No other applications effect the dock or screen.  I'm really confused.....

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.

     

    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.

     

    The purpose of this test is to determine whether your problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login.

     

    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode* and log in to the account with the problem. The instructions provided by Apple are as follows:

     

    1. Shut down your computer, wait 30 seconds, and then hold down the shift key while pressing the power button.
    2. When you see the gray Apple logo, release the shift key.
    3. If you are prompted to log in, type your password, and then hold down the shift key again as you click  Log in.

     

    *Note: If FileVault is enabled under OS X 10.7 or later, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t boot in safe mode.

     

    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including sound and wireless networking on certain Macs.

     

    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.

     

    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?

     

    After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

    The highlighted message says that you have an outdated version of an iTunes visualizer. That's not so important in itself, but since it's a built-in system component, you may have other system corruption. More to the point, the Dock is crashing. Please post the crash report.

    Found this thread: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3981604?start=0&tstart=0

     

    You posted on it actually, question is I'm not sure what files to remove from these folders?

  • Torn-Barb Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Ha!  you find one rabbit hole you find them all.....

     

    I remember I enabled the "Show Now Playing" in the dock from iTunes, unix command found here: http://osxdaily.com/2011/11/19/show-a-now-playing-itunes-notification-in-the-os- x-dock/

     

    I disabled it and killed iTunes & Dock, the issue appears to be gone, I'll keep an eye on it.  Thanks for the help, you got my brain working again.

  • peterfromnorwood Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    This solved my problem! It was the dock visualizer.
