An article over at MacFixIt.com reports that several users have written in regarding screen flicker problems with their MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo laptops.
The flickering, according to reader Steven Bailey, is horizontally variable and has appeared twice to date when the screen is turned to full brightness. A restart reduced the problem, but is still visible if the brightness level is reduced.
The problem seems reminiscent of a logic board problem that haunted Apple’s iBook G4 laptops. The company diagnosed the problem and in many cases replaced the logic board under warranty.
If you’re seeing this problem with your Core 2 Duo-based MacBook Pro or have questions or comments, please let us know.
