If your computer is still covered by the original warranty, you'll need to have any service work done by an Apple-authorized service location. This might mean sending the computer to them unless you have a servicer locally. Check your telephone directory to see if there's an Apple Store in your area, or call a local Apple retailer (Best Buy, for instance) for their recommendation. You can also visit Apple's website for information on how to obtain service.

Whether or not you have to send your computer away for service, make sure you have backed up any important data. A service center will often restore a computer with a fresh factory software image as a first step, to see if software issues are keeping the hardware from working properly. They don't always announce this, although it's buried in the fine print somewhere. Leaving your computer for repair implies your acceptance of the possibility, and people are sometimes unpleasantly surprised.

Hope you can get the problem quickly (and locally) resolved. Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a new 27 imac


I would suggest that the problem is not your imac but the camera have you checked the date is correct on your camera. The imac takes the date as far as I understand it from the Exif data on the picture which is written by the camera.

17" iMac quit working



Your Imac may be one of those affected by Apples purchase of inferior capacitators from Taiwan. If you are less than 3 years from the purchase date, apple will repair the problem for you for free. Just take the unit to your nearest local Apple Genius or tech. If you are outside of the repair extension guidelines, I have provided a link here which can show you or someone more skilled how to repair the problem. Ordering a new motherboard and power supply will set you back a lot of money, however the following guide and pdf give you step by step instructions on how to ressurrect your dead imac without speding more than $100.00. I was able to repair my imac using this guide and it was worth it to save a $2k computer that was only 3 1/2 years old. Check it out:

the following information (in italics and bold)  is taken directly from: http://www.jimwarholic.com/2008/07/how-to-repair-apple-imac-g5.php.  (this site is complete with instructions, manual and the full compliment of materials available at an extremely affordable and fair price. I took a chance and repaired my own, it is not as hard as it sounds1)

The iMac G5 Repair Extension Program for Video and Power Issues applies to first generation iMac G5 computers that have video or power-related issues as a result of a specific component failure. If your iMac G5 is exhibiting any of the symptoms listed below and your computer's serial number is within the noted ranges, your computer may be eligible for repair, free of charge. If Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) determines that your iMac G5 computer is eligible as part of the program, the repair will be covered by Apple for up to three years from the original date of purchase even if your iMac G5 is out of warranty.

This is a worldwide Apple program.
Affected systems will exhibit one of the following video- or power-related symptoms:
Scrambled or distorted video 
No video 
No power 
Note: If your iMac G5 is not experiencing any of these symptoms, you do not have to contact Apple or any Apple Authorized Service Provider.

Which iMac G5 computers are affected by the iMac G5 Repair Extension Program for Video and Power Issues? 
The program is available for certain first generation iMac G5 models that were sold between approximately September 2004 and June 2005 featuring 17- and 20-inch displays with 1.6GHz and 1.8GHz G5 processors.

The affected iMac G5 computers have serial numbers where the first 5 digits fall into the ranges noted below.

Serial Number ranges:
W8435xxxxxx - W8522xxxxxx 
QP435xxxxxx - QP522xxxxxx 
CK435xxxxxx - CK522xxxxxx 
YD435xxxxxx - YD522xxxxxx 
Some second generation iMac G5 computers have serial numbers that fall within the upper band of the ranges listed below. Only first generation iMac G5 computers are affected by this program.


Where do I find the serial number of my iMac G5?
The 11-digit serial number is located on a label under the foot of the iMac G5. There is a bar code underneath the serial number.
To view the label, hold the sides of the iMac and gently lay the computer face down on a soft, clean towel or cloth.



Is the iMac G5 Repair Extension program available for other Apple computers? 


This program applies only to the systems noted in this FAQ. Other versions of the iMac G5 line are not part of this program. Click here for more information on how to identify iMac G5 models

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.

In the apple list,


you've most likely got something running that is competing with processing time for your player. i'd open up activity monitor and see what processes are highest on CPU % usage. the ones that look elective (not system-related), turn 'em off. turn off spotlight for a sec too. then test your import into itunes afterwards. is it still slow?

Screen Changes and Comupter freezes


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.
