Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop
Not sure why this is- its only just happened haven't moved the computer its just like a white stripe from top to bottom in the right half of the screen
anyone know how to fix this or know what is the problem
I have the same problem-a vertical white band on the right side of my computer. It seems to be before the actual screen meaning, I can see everything "behind" band but have to move my desktop info away from it to see them.
If the white band appears right from start up, the display needs to be replaced, if it comes on after it starts, it is most likely a software problem.

I have some good news and some bad news for you. First the bad news. the LCD panel in your unit is damaged beyond what 95% of people could fix at home. what has basically happened is the very very thin signalling cables that run around the edge of the screen is damaged. your only option is to replace the panel, which can be a major hassle unless you are very comfortable with a screwdriver and have at least disassembled laptops and know what the parts are.
Bad news as well, part is about $150.
good news. most shops can do this repair for you, esp. if they deal with laptops.
I can give you the replacement info if you wish to attempt it yourself, but as i said, it can be a hard repair to do.
