    Good day PhilMUG,

    It's been a while. I need some help. A few months ago I started noticing some sort of haze on a portion of my screen and now it covers up almost 75-80% of my screen (turned very little bit yellowish) accompanied by these diagonal lines of some sort. Have no idea what this is or how to remove it. I doubt but could this be my screen protector? Hesitant to bring my Mac to a repair center. Afraid of getting wrong diagnosis and ending up having to spend for something that's not really broken.:cry:

    Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance.

    Try connecting your mac to an external monitor. If the haze and lines still appear there may be a problem with the video chip or logic board. If not then it might be the built-in screen or video cable. I don't think a screen protector can produce that look but you can try removing it to see if it does cause the haze and lines.

    Thank you very much @makintosh for the reply! Been using my 32" inch LED TV for dual monitor set up most of the time and never had anything like that on the other screen.

    I second jcorduwa's idea to bring it to an authorized repair center. Alternatively you can bring it to Ynzal. Parts and labor may be cheaper there.
