First off, take a screenshot and make sure the lines are not there. If they are, it's not your screen that has gone but your graphics card.

As far as replacing the screen goes, have a look at: Installing iMac G5 17" Model A1058 Display - iFixit

If you took a screen shot, and the lines are NOT there, it's the screen.


There is no graphics card for iMac G5, it is soldered to the logic board and cannot be replaced. A logic board replacement would be your only option.
