First, plun a external monitor and toggle the screen with ALT+F5. This will determine if you have a hardware or software problem (drivers, configuration, etc).
If the image in the external screen is correct then the problem is in the LCD panel or its cabling.
Here you can get the replacement LCD panel and change it yourself.

It may sound strange but be absolutely sure the cable is plugged into the monitor. Adapter on the computer. The serial adapter on the back looks just like video. Video actually has a faintly noticeable monitor icon rigtht next to it. Plugging into a serial can eventually blow out your monitor. Also, a.badcable can do the same thing. And if you have messed up the monitor's settings you will see the same

Colorful vertical lines on 17"

This is typically a bad or loose cable to the monitor inside the computer. While you can open the iMac, Apple doesn't make it easy. It requires special tools, and there is a lot of tape involved. You can go to an Apple store to get it fixed, or to most computer repair places. It will likely cost you a little more than doing it yourself, but if something gets messed up in the process, they will be on the hook for fixing it, while if you did it yourself, now you have two things to repair.
