View Full Version : Weird Screen Display

Very occasionally I get the screen going weird on my iMac G5. The closest I can describe it is that it becomes 'solarized' like the Photoshop effect. All the colours become less subtle and the display takes on a far more 'blocky' effect.

When it happens (three times over a couple of months) I've tried changing the monitor resolution and the colours but this has no effect. Neither does invoking the screen saver. The only thing that works is a reboot. One interesting thing is that I used 'Grab' to take a screenshot so I could post it here but 'Grab' returned the correct display when saved to TIFF.

I get the feeling after that there's something a bit funny with the actual screen hardware itself. Has anyone else seen this?

I would check if it is fixable under the new return program
