Its not uncommon for that to happen after a long time of use due to heat, it may last another 5 years like that then again you never know, if its worth it you can get a replacement screen off ebay fairly cheap it wont affect the performance of your system but im sure it can be quite annoying

My iMac has had a reappearing yellow vertical line down the left of my screen for at least two months now!


Maybe the video card. Try to spray with electronic contact cleaner the connections (pc cable to monitor).

The monitor has vertical lines and now vertical black and white strips


Check your cable connections. If those are fine, you need a new monitor.

I HAVE A VERTICAL WHITE LINE (1" WIDE") ON MY DISPLAY


If it runs all the way from top to bottom, will not go away, and perhaps flickers or vibrates, it is quite possibly a symptom of a faulty LCD panel. Attach a second display using the auxiliary display port on the rear. If the white line does not show up on this display, your main LCD panel is faulty.
Main LCD panel replacement on this model is not a difficult job for a certified tech. The panel can be had for $80 used (17" screen; other sizes may vary).

White vertical lines on screen. Unable to see pictures


check your graphics card connection to the motherboard when turned off. Try to install new drivers for the correct card. All else failts try a different monitor with same graphics card. If that doesn't work you know it's your graphics card. If it works fine, somethings up with the monitor itself.

Vertical line in imac 17" core 2 duo intel 2006 model


Attach an external monitor (you may need to buy an adapter to try this) and turn on Display Mirroring in the Display preferences.
If the same symptom shows on the external monitor, then you've got a video card problem. If not, I'd say you're screen has some kind of damage of failure.
Sorry, but either one is likely going to require a trip to the Apple Hospital.
At least with the display problem, you could use the external monitor until repaired.

White vertical line going through my IMAC screen


The line is an indication that there is a failure in the display, most times the failure will be limited to the line you see but occasionally the problem will spread, causing more lines. the only way to fix it is to have the display replaced.

IMac Monitor


What type of monitor is this? If it is an LCD screen, you may have some dead pixels. Please reply with some more details about your specific monitor.
