View Full Version : Screen Share brings up a black screen

2nd January 2009, 09:31 PM
I am on a roll tonight.

Tonight i set up screen share so that i could control my husbands mac without actually having to pick it up. But when i connect to his computer from my own it brings up a black screen.

I changed the System>Sharing to allow screen sharing and control of his computer (basically i ticked all the boxes), but i still get the black screen.

Help please :)

Check "View" in the Screen Sharing menu.

You may be looking at an inactive display.

I had this problem for a while. It sorted itself out when all my computers were updated to 10.5.6 and restarted.
