I'm getting a thin verticle line on my imac monitor. only two years old. Started a few months ago. Now a second one has appeared three inches from first one. Any ideas?

Not good. Do you have Applecare at all?

Apple - Support - Discussions - thin vertical lines are appearing on ...

Also check this out to see if the machine falls into the serial numb er listed:-

Hi,

Only two months after my applecare expired, I started getting the vertical lines. So after 14 months of using the computer it started and now it's up to 29 lines. I was told by the store I bought it from that to fix it would cost $500! Can you believe that?

I'm so disappointed I can't really put it into words.

In my experience Apple will come to the party for out of warranty repairs for known faults < i know of 2 - 14 months and 18 months both without extended warranty > and your unit is fairly new. Might be worth the effort to approach them.

From your description the LCD display is failing, not cheap to replace. I see quite a lot of problems like this on the 17" iMacs, rarely other sizes.

If your in the U.S., call customer service-not the help line. Talk nicely and describe to person what has happened and how soon after the warranty period has expired. Apple has been very conciliatory about things like this from what I have read on the Apple discussions web site. Amiably persevere and things may work out. If out of the U.S., I would suggest the customer service for your country. Good luck.
