Apple Anti-Reflective Coating Display Recall

MacBook Anti-Reflective Coat Damage

My damage looked kind of like this, but a bit worse.

Hi! I don’t know if anyone will find this useful, but if you happen to have a Mac laptop that has the anti-reflective coating coming off, Apple will replace your display for free! That will save you about $800!!! The not-very-publicized recall put into place by Apple is in response to what has been termed “Staingate.”

I didn’t know what was wrong with my screen. I thought I just couldn’t get it clean, so I looked it up online, and determined that it was the anti-reflective coating that had come off around where the keyboard hits the middle of the screen. Usually you can still use your display with the problem, but it can get REALLY annoying. The first time I looked up the issue I didn’t see any way to resolve it. Then about a week ago I was looking online and stumbled across this MacRumors article: https://www.macrumors.com/2017/11/17/apple-extends-free-staingate-repairs/ (Thank You MacRumors!). The article says that they will replace it up to three years from purchase date, but I believe it is up to four years from purchase date.

I was actually past the timeframe, and I was really bummed out (I had missed it by three months). Fortunately, a great service tech at CityMac told me I should contact Apple and see if they could make an exception. I contacted Apple, and they did! I’m pleased to say that I also had a good customer service experience with Apple this time. In the past I had had terrible customer service.

I’m now typing behind a shiny new AND CLEAR computer screen. Yay!

So, if you have this problem, you can take it into an Apple store, or go to an Authorized Retailer like CityMac. You can also contact Apple and mail your computer in if you prefer. Good luck and good computing!

We have a family of squirrels that run around in our backyard. This is one of them resting on top of the fence. They enjoy hiding nuts in all of my mom’s plants and drinking from the cat’s water dish! haha. Feel free to print and color. Will fit on an 8-1/2 x 11 piece of paper.

I had to make this, because my parents are big Oregon Ducks fans. They were watching the Ducks WIN today, so I thought I’d poke the Oregon State Beavers and the University of Washington Huskies with this comic. LOL. Feel free to download and print it off to color. It will fit on an 8-1/2 x 11 piece of paper. I recommend borderless printing if your printer can do that, but it isn’t necessary. Enjoy! Go Ducks!

Retraction: El Capitan Mac OS X

March 3, 2016 at 12:46 pm | Posted in 2016, Apple, Apple OS X, El Capitan, fix, Fonts | Leave a comment

I need to print a retraction to my earlier tirade against El Capitan. At this moment it seems like I’ve been able to fix my issues, and I think it was a conflict with font management software, and NOT the fault of the poor El Capitan. I’ve deleted my other article. People stumbling upon this will probably have no idea what I’m talking about. I just want to say that I finally found the right help from a guy named Linc on Apple’s support discussion forums. Yay! Happy computing! And, FYI, if you happen to get error messages saying you don’t have permission to open a file or save a file, just be warned that it may not have anything to do with permissions at all!
