    Hello,

    I switched my Mac on this morning to discover the screen was faulty. After a couple of minutes of using Sierra the screen starts to blur/ flicker through many different colours. After a moment, the screen will revert to normal only to be followed by a repeat of the above. This is continuous. I have performed a factory reset on the machine and noted there were no screen issues whilst the restore was occuring. The screen issues came back only when I reentered the OS. If I plug the laptop in to an additional display via HDMI the issue goes away completedly on both the MBP screen and also the display which it is plugged in to. Quite unusual!

    Could anyone recommend a potential fix for this?

    Many thanks,

    Alex

    Hello and welcome.

    -Which exact model of MBP?
    -Which version of OS X?
    -This is only happening after the OS is loaded?
    -Do you have any third-party software installed that relate to the display?

    Hello C,

    Thank you so much for your reply.

    - MBP Retina 13 Inch Early 2015
    - OS 10.12.5 (Sierra)
    - Yes, it only happens after OS has loaded. In the last day or so it's stopped doing it entirely. I am sure it will resurface soon, however.
    - No third party software installed
