Question: Blueish monitor with Night Shift activated on High Sierra

The colour temperature of my MacBook Pro monitor turns very blueish randomly, going back to the usual yellowish temperature of Night Shift mode after a few seconds. Even when the monitor turns blue, Night Shift remains activated.

I noticed this problem especially while watching Netflix in full-screen mode, if it may be related somehow.

MacBook Pro (13-inch Mid 2012), macOS High Sierra (10.13)

Hello otazolrac.

If I'm understanding correctly, you are noticing that the color of your MacBook Pro screen randomly turns blue for a while and eventually reverts back to the normal Night Shift color. I will be happy to help. Let's try a couple of resets to see if it helps.

First try resetting the NVRAM, as shown in the link below:

Next reset the SMC from the steps in this link:
