After just two days I got my MacBook Pro back with a new display, and it’s completely free of any “burn in” effects. While working on the old screen got me constantly annoyed, working with this new retina screen really makes me happy. Huge difference!
According to the screen cover, my new screen was manufactured on November 1, 2012, and has a serial number DLM243500HTF49HBJ.
Checking the display type from terminal returns:
ioreg -lw0 | grep \”EDID\” | sed “/[^<]*</s///” | xxd -p -r | strings -6
So if you also have a faulty screen on your MacBook Pro, do return it. Hopefully you’ll get a good working screen in exchange!
