Finally comes with a good news. I picked up my laptop yesterday and yes, a Samsung screen for this time. I checked it carefully. Ho Cheung was right, it seems apple started to replace the screen with Samsung for all users who had IR issue.
I hope the nightmare will be end and I'll continue to update my story in the future. Wish all friends like me who still fighting with apple will have a Samsung screen soon. Good Luck!

These tend to be static in their location and displayed on the screen for an extended period. Once other graphics load over these locations, it might be possible to see a faint outline or image of the previous graphic. In most cases, no. The crystals have a natural state and could shift depending on the amount of current used to generate the desired color.
As long as these colors change periodically, the crystals at that pixel should fluctuate enough, so the image doesn't imprint into the crystals permanently. However, if the screen is always on the image that doesn't change, the crystals could obtain a permanent memory. Image persistence on LCD screens can be corrected in most cases and easily prevented. Set the screen to turn off after a few minutes of idle time. Turning off the monitor display prevents images from appearing for extended periods.
Setting the monitor to do this when the computer is idle for 15 to 30 minutes can make a difference. Use a Windows screen saver or Mac screen saver that rotates, has moving graphics, or is blank. Rotate any background images on the desktop. Background images are a common cause of image persistence. By switching backgrounds every day or every few days, you'll reduce the risk of persistence.
Turn off the monitor when the system is not in use. Using these items can prevent the image persistence problem from cropping up on a monitor. If the monitor displays image persistence problems, here are a few steps that can be used to correct it:. Turn off the monitor for extended periods. Use a screen saver with a rotating image and run it for an extended period.
The rotating color palette should remove the persistent image. Still, it could take a while to remove it. Run the screen with a single solid color or bright white for an extended time to force the crystals to reset at a single color setting. By Mark Kyrnin Mark Kyrnin.

Might as well wait for the next manned trip to the andromeda galaxy. No one from the press dubbed it antennagate, Steve did. The press got on their back because the iphone had a grave error in its antenna design which was corrected in the 4s. Apple got away with it and sold millions of iphone 4, no one else would have pulled it off and not only have gone unscathed from this, but also make their product a bestseller and without even modifying the problematic design.
I am actually very pleasantly surprised with the level of qc in the new retina pros screens, after the problems with the yellow tinge of the ipad I expected a more bumpy start. Lg, or whoever is behind this is doing a pretty good job it seems. Must be isolated. We have several that we have had since first week and no issues on them. Can you leave it on a single image for maybe 10 minutes and then pull up an all white image?
How is that article 'fanning the flames'? It anything, its trying to minimise the issue - trying to come up with reasons on why it could impact only a few. Toggle navigation. Some early adopters of the new MacBook Pro with Retina display are experiencing image persistence issues with the laptop's high-resolution screen, prompting Apple to replace any possibly defective units. A number of users have reported on Apple's Community Forums via The Next Web that their new MacBook Pro's Retina display suffers from image retention issues, sometimes incorrectly referred to as ghosting, though the problem is not believed to be widespread.
Mis-titled as a screen "burn-in" problem, the thread contains a number of identical instances of image persistence on the high pixel density IPS panels used in the recently-released MacBook Pro, though the true number of those affected could be greater as the problem may be too subtle for all but the most eagle-eyed users.
As noted by forum members, the latent image is only noticeable on light-colored backgrounds and remains on the screen for some five minutes before slowly fading away. Apple is apparently aware of the issue as Geniuses have ordered replacement units for the malfunctioning screens but in some cases owners have to wait two to three weeks due to high demand for the laptop.

I'm not sure why Appleinsider needs to fan the flames for the mentally ill here. No we will have to deal with endless posts from people that see nothing in their screens but are worried that they have a problem with their new retina MBP.

The new Retina MacBooks could be the most problematic for Apple since the introduction of the original during the transition to Intel in Early adopters of that device also experienced significant performance issues that ultimately resulted in a recall and warranty extension for hard drive-related problems. While Apple is fixing the issue for some customers lucky enough to eventually land a Samsung-made display during the replacement process, reports of problems and bad experiences during the repair process are driving some to opt for other devices:.
I want to know if you guys can help me decide if I should go for it or not, if these image retention and burn in and ui lag issues appear to be fixed with this new model or if it is still the same. Thanks a lot! Apart from the knowledge base article describing the problem as normal, Apple has not publicly addressed the widespread problems with the Retina MacBooks.
That means any MacBook customers who happen to start experiencing issues with their LG displays or other components after their complimentary 1-year warranty is up will be out of luck. Apple last week released a software update for the inch Retina MacBook Pro that attempts to resolve some issues related to graphics, PowerNap, and fans, but, unfortunately, many of these performance-related issues still exist. Should Apple do more to address these undeniable issues for early adopters through a public response and or better preparing retail staff?
