    What happened to my iMac screen?


    Its a few years old. It has never been dropped to my knowledge. The desk I have has a raised pedestal for the monitor so of course the iMac is on it. In the past, I had a wired keyboard and mouse so it's possible that someone pulled it off the pedestal on accident and put it back up.. and never told me. I don't know that for sure, and hope it's not the case.

    You can't tell when the screen is on. When the screen is off, you can see a haziness in the top left corner that actually travels to the top right corner. In the picture you can only see it in the top left corner and it might look like it's just light from the window - but it's not.

    Any ideas if this is a defect or looks like damage from being dropped? In either case, about how much could I expect to pay for a fix?

    Thanks

    Nope its not dust. It looks as if the screen might have something like an adhesive holding it to the glass or plastic front of the screen.. and it seems like it was pulled away some how.

    Does the display light at all? In other words, can you see video on the screen when the computer is on? Or does it remain dark at all times?
