View Full Version : LCD stain/shadow

There's a odd irregularly-shaped shadow maybe 17mm by 8mm on my 21-month-old 12"PowerBook's LCD ... I noticed it a week ago and it's been driving me crazy, it's right over the menu bar on the right edge of the screen, so I can't help but notice it every time I glance at the clock :blink:

I'm pretty sure it's not dirt, though all I've tried is gentle rubbing with a damp cloth. Has anyone seen something like this before?

It's annoying, because I love this powerbook and aside from some paint flaking (or whatever anodised aluminium does) on the palmrest it's still in good shape.

hi there,

I had the same problem with my newly purchased iBook G4. My "shadow" ran right down one side of the screen. After some advice from Appletalk, I dampened a cotton bud with some water and wiped it gently from one side of the screen to another, that got rid of the problem.
If that doesn't work, i've heard iKlear works wonders (bought from your local Apple Centre).
