Hi, this is a manufacturing defect that is very common in these imacs. How long ago did you purchase this imac. Some of them have fallen under extended warranty due to to it being apple's fault for the defect but I believe that program closed near the end of 08. I would call apple directly and complain about the issue and they may fix it at no cost to you. A work around to the problem is to hook up a secondary monitor and use that as the main monitor. Due to this being a defect in the LCD screen itself it is not worth repair as it could easily run 700-900$. I would recommend just using a separate monitor. This is a huge widespread problem, so I would complain to apple anyways as it is unacceptable to leave consumers hanging because of their defective manufacturing. If you need any further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

There is a vertical black bar along the left side of my TV. It started as a thin yellow/white bar and has grown to be about 2 or 3 inches wide, blocking that portion of the screen.


The LCD wafer has gone bad, and more lines will begin to appear over time. It can be replaced but the cost may be comparable to replacing the entire television.

Thin vertical yellow line and a white vertical line appeared on ibm thinkcenter r52


What is happening to your laptop is the power line connecting a row of pixels is failing so only partial colors are showing up causing the vertical lines. Usually screen replacement is the only answer to fix it. You can usually find replacement LCD on Ebay.

White lines on screen


It is a problem in the vertical circuit of the set---most likely a bad filter cap connected directly to the vertical output IC chip.

It may be a do it yourself repair if you are handy.

Let me know if you have questions.

White arched lines appearing on dark/black screens.


it sounds like you are seeing the vertical retrace for all three colors together (white). Its possible that all three screen adjustments (red, green, blue) are off, but I suspect a problem with the screen power supply.
there is also a recall on this set
