Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop
Our 18 month old iMac G5 has recently stopped working properly. After a short period of use (5 - 20 minutes) the display morphs into what looks like a hazy bluish overlay of a series of vertical and horizontal lines/boxes. It also freezes. HELP! Any ideas?
If you are lucky you may qualify for the extended repair program from Apple.
Read about it here:
If not you may want to join the others who don't have AppleCare and are not too happy.
Less sympathy found here:
If enough people complain Apple may extend the repair to more serial numbers as has happened in the past. Macs are generally excellent machines and well worth the money but problems can arise in manufacturing considering the widespread sources computer companies must use to compile their product.
Good luck, let us know what happens.

It may be possible that the power supply, display and or logicbpard may be having issues. Apple recommends resetting the pram and nvram. If issue persists reset SMU. YOur machine is 6 months outside of the original warranty, but if you purchased the 3 year extension plan, you may want to take action on it.
Keep me posted.
