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.

Shortly after the warranty was up the first vertical yellow line appeared and now, about 1 months later another vertical line appeared. He's not happy to hear it only gets worse and apple won't do anything...


Although its possible for graphics processor failures to cause vertical lines, they more often create horizontal ones. The first culprit to check for a vertical line problem is the LVDS cable, which it turns out is not that expensive a part (not counting all the work there is in getting to it). To verify this, I would gently flex the cable while the iMac is open and operating, and see if the lines get better or worse. It may also be that the cable itself is fine and just a few of the connector pins at either end are intermittent, in which case it just needs reseating.

Blue vertical line thru picture


It is called "Thin vertical lines" and change colors depending on the background color.
It is fixable but there are several components that can show this sympton.

You will need a tech to fix it in order to save money (because you do not want to buy a board you dont know if will fix it).
Possible Solutions:
Replace Timer Control Board, if it is not fixed
Replace Sustain Board.

One of those boards needs to be replaced and I wrote the most likely first.

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.
