IMac Intel :: New 27 Inch Screen Flashing?


I bought my iMac last week, it the most powerful 27 inch with 8 gig's of ram. I just noticed this morning for the first time that the screen was flashing every 10 seconds or so. It has now stopped. I do have a 23inch mac flat screen (about 4 years old) attached to it. Maybe this is why?

IMac Intel :: 27 Inch Screen Versus 24 Inch Cinema Display
I have both the 27 inch i5 iMac and the 24 inch Cinema Display. The Cinema Display is connect to my macbook pro.

I have noticed a slight difference in the "whiteness" in the iMac display and cinema display. The iMac seems much more cleaner "white" , while the cinema display seems more yellow. If the 2 displays weren't side by side I wouldn't notice a difference.

IMac Intel :: New 27 Inch With Backlight Leak On Screen
This new imac has these light leaks on the upper edge and the corners. So when a dark screen is on, say with a film, it looks like somebody left the lobby door open during the movie. What does anyone know about this issue, the causes, etc. Will this get worse as time goes on? Can I get apple to replace the screen?

IMac Intel :: Blue Flashing Screen - Doesn't Start Up
I just had new RAM replaced on my iMac due to faulty RAM under waranty, and everything seemed to be working fine. I downloaded some updates today and restarted the computer. Now on start up the computer loads to an alternating blue screen and won't load.

When I restared the computer, I had just completed a back up, and left the external hard drive attached. Could this have created a problem?

I have tried to do the basic troubleshooting start ups but have had no luck. Do I need to do a reinstall off disc? If I do, do I loose everything that's on the hard drive?

IMac Intel :: 17 Inch Blue Vertical Line On Screen?
What upsets me the most is that my Applecare coverage just expired 22 days ago, (September 20th).

Just My Luck. Am I left hanging here or will Apple step up. I've heard this was a common problem with this generation Mac. But most people got the problem before their first year, Not after 3.

I do not wish to spend money on this as parts for this can be pricey. Within first year of ownership, I had the Optical (Super Drive Replaced and the logic Board.

IMac Intel :: White Screen With Flashing Folder And Question Mark And Constant Crashing?
Recently I noticed the mac had started getting a lot slower than usual, I put this down to the many Photoshop files on the hard-drive, later deleting around 90 percent of them....The computer was back to speed,

Until one morning when I booted it up and a white screen with a flashing folder appeared, I restarted the system and it went back to normal but seemed a lot lot slower once again. The screen has happened a few times now and upon research people have reported a clicking noise when this screen appears? I luckily do not get this, just a frozen screen.

I then further looked into it and people reported that a re-install of the software should fix it, as the flashing folder is the imac looking for the HD?

I re-installed which at first seemed to fix it, until about 20 minutes after.

I do occasionally get the blank screen and flashing folder now, but more the computer literally freezes 24/7 Countless times, the only option being to force a restart. Sorry for the long winded topic, it just seems easier to explain this how you would say it when the help you need isn't in front of you, so you get the better picture

To sum up; The imac got the white screen and flashing folder numerous times, but can eventually get around this and log on as usual. When logged on however, it's constantly freezing for even the most simple tasks leaving me to shut it down forcefully.

I have re-installed the software once which at first seemed to have fixed it, but later proved wrong. The only usb peripherals being used are my keyboard and mouse.

Intel :: 21.5 Inch IMac AND 27 Inch IMac Dimensions?
Yesterday I purchased both a 21.5" and 27" iMac for my business (to be delivered sometime later). I need to organize my workstations for the new equipment, but cannot find OVERALL height specifications for either iMac anywhere on apple.com or on the Internet.

I am looking for the approximate total height of the 21.5" iMac, from the bottom of its stand to the top of its monitor. I'm looking for the same total height specifications for the 27" iMac, too.

Intel :: IMac 21.5 Inch Versus IMac 24 Inch?
My iMac (21.5 inch 3.06 GHz intel i3 snow leopard), against my partner's iMac (the earlier 24 inch running leopard). Because we are photographers, the main use is photo editing, some Garage band and the usual internet "research"+ iTunes. Ideally i would prefer the 24 inch one, with the screen resolution and the OS that is running on mine. We will not keep both, therefore all the data will be transferred (to one of them).

OS X :: IMac Bootcamp - Stuck On Flashing Underscore Of Black Screen
I tried to install Windows 7 via Bootcamp a couple weeks back, but shortly after it failed, I deleted the Bootcamp partition in Bootcamp Assistant. However, whenever I want to boot my computer, it tries to go into the Windows Installation, but it gets stuck on the flashing underscore on the top left of the black screen. Henceforth, whenever I want to boot into OSX, I have to hold down both ALT keys. is there any way of fixing this so the iMac boots STRAIGHT into OSX (like normally)

IMac :: New 21.5 Inch ... Getting Random Black Screen
The screen randomly turns black without any major reasons. It doesn't seem to be a sleep mode/screen saver thing as the music continues to play on. I can adjust the volume or pause the music with the keyboard but the screen just won't turn back on. I have to shut it down using the power button and it happened several time the last couple days. Anyone else experience the same thing and got a solution?

PowerPC :: Screen Repair - 20 Inch Imac G5?
My lovely cat recently decided to walk around my desk while I was at work and knocked over my Imac, causing a large crack in the glass and the screen. I'm not technically capable enough to do the install of the screen/glass myself, but I was wondering what I should expect a repair from an Apple certified technician to run.

IMac :: 27-inch - Dust Under The Screen - How To Clean
A few months ago, i noticed what looked like a streak across the screen, but it wasnt on the outside, it was on the under side of the glass. Now, the streak is very visible esp in natural lighting. Its not noticable at night, because the screen light shines through it making it invisible.

It looks like dust? But im not 100% sure, but it has a directional pattern which leads me to believe its being causes by the inner fans of the system, and that there are some gaps where the air flow is constant. Also, the streak is in the upper left hand corner mostly (no where on the bottom poritions). Im assuming that the place holder at the top-backside of the iMac, for the exhaust fans to expell the heat from within, is what is causing this air flow.

Intel Mac :: 27 Inch Screen Won't Turn On?
my imac is about 3months out of the box and a few days ago i went to turn it on and....nothing.  i could hear the start-up chime and the mac clicking and making "doing" noises, also i could clearly hear the volume toggle up and down.  That said, the screen remained, well, dead and just black.So, the first thing on my agenda for the weekend was to take my imac into the shop.  As i was organising the equipment, i tried one more time to turn it on.It worked.For me, that's a bad thing as my mac may do this again.  It was out of action for 3 days now it's back.  So now i am on here.

IMac :: The New 27-inch IMac Uses Up To 365W Versus 280W For The Old 24-inch!
The new 27-inch iMac uses up to 365W vs 280W for the old 24-inch! (going by Apple's published max. power consumption numbers. I doubt they would lie because it isn't exactly favourable for them to put in falsely high numbers in an environmental report).

That means there's some extra beef behind the extra components. Perhaps the ATI 4670 is a bit overclocked and the 4850 runs a bit faster than the old iMacs? Admittedly that 2.8 GHz i7 is going to suck a fair bit of power - the recent 2.8 GHz i7 860 model runs at a 95W TDP, however, the quad core iMac isn't available until November. So it won't be using the i7 860, and my guess it is using another custom processor, something a bit more power efficient, somewhere in between the 55W TDP of the old iMacs and the 95W TDP of the i7 860.

The difference between the power consumption of the two computers is 85W. The old iMac had a 24-watt digital amplifier, this new one has two 17-watt amplifiers. That brings the delta down to 75W. Say the iMac's i7 processor has an 80W TDP. That now brings the delta down to 50W. The new display likely wouldn't increase power consumption because of the LED backlight.

I'm not sure if I'm missing much (OK, two extra RAM chips may use another few watts), but there is still a fairly massive 50W unaccounted for.

Just a bit of fat to chew on

IMac Intel :: Permanent Flashing Globe At Startup?
I purchased it (24" widescreen model, silver casing) in 2008. Here is the problem.

I went on a 3 day vacation to vegas, I left my computer on as usual. When I arrived home, it was frozen on one of the screen saver pictures. I had to power off the computer manually. When I restarted, I held the option key and instead of getting a couple disk icons to select between my OS X and Windows XP, I got a blank grey screen. I tried again, same thing. I tried without holding option, and got a black screen and message stating there was no bootable disk (this would be on the windows side of things). Restarted again, held option, got the grey screen and decided to wait. About 10 minutes later a flashing globe appeared. I researched this and understand that the computer is trying to boot from a non-existent network disk. I am not sure how this preference was changed. The solution is to change the preference. The problem is in all the solutions I encoutnered, the flashing globe eventually goes away, followed by a question mark and then finally start up. Mine remained as a flashing globe for 10 hours overnight, so I am at a loss on how to correct it.
