Question: Orange discoloration on bottom right corner of macbook pro

So just yesterday I started seeing an orange discoloration in the bottom right corner of my macbook pro 2017 15 inch model with touchbar. It seems like the issue goes away temporarily if stored in a flat manner, but when I put it in my backpack vertically the issue comes back, almost as if the liquid in the LCD display is slowly moving around, when stored in one manner or another. I'm not sure what might have caused this issue to start, but I've noticed a bunch of other recent posts that are also starting to have this same problem, as well as the macbooks that were around in 2011. Anyone else seeing this issue? To note, I take very good care of my macbook, and for this reason did not purchase Applecare.

MacBook Pro TouchBar and Touch ID, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

Dear Sterling r,


I have the same exact model, MBP 2017, 15". I have the same exact orange discoloration on the bottom LEFT.

I purchased mine on September 5th, 2017. So it is a bit over one year. I have the very durable protective case and a screen protector, etc. I have taken an extremely good care because this machine is one EXPENSIVE one.

I also carry it in my backpack, inside a protective sleeve all the time! Never dropped or anything.

I did not expect APPLE to make this very faulty hardware on the most expensive (probably?) laptop in the market.


I found lots of people having the same issue popping up at the same time!

What's going on?! I do not have AppleCare unfortunately. But it is not just me having this particular problem.

It seems that MANY people who bought 2017 MBP started having this issue.

Can't Apple do something about this?! It's obviously a manufacturing fault!

Hey there, adangert,

Thanks for stopping by the Apple Support Communities. If I understand your post, there is a discoloration on your MacBook Pro with only occurs if you carry your computer sideways, for example while in a bag. I'm happy to provide you with some information!

From what you've described, I would recommend taking the computer into an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider to have it looked at. A Genius or Apple-certified technician will be able to inspect your computer, determine the issue, and provide you with a resolution. You can find locations, get contact information, and set reservations here: Apple - Find Locations .

For more information, and to review your options, you can reach out to Apple Support directly here: Contact Apple Support .

Cheers!
