IMac Intel :: Yellow Vertical Line On Screen Display
I've had my iMac for 5 months now. This is the one that came out in the recent August refresh. As you can understand I'm not happy that a yellow line has appeared on such a recent purchase. I'm a massive Apple fan and have never been disappointed. Will my Apple warranty cover this? I've read on these forums that in some cases it does, and some cases it doesn't.

Intel Mac :: Vertical Ant Line Across Display
I started noticing what I describe as ant-lines running vertically across my late 2009 27" iMac. I am fairly certain that they were not there before but I can't really remember. I did a search and found some discussions regrading video issues and vertical line anomalies but none like what I am seeing. url...It's noticable from a distance of about 2 feet and closer. It's not visible on white or black but midtones is where I see it. It gets really distracting at about 20" and closer, especially in iPhoto when scrolling through photos.Has anyone else seen anything like this and do you guys think I will have any luck getting something like this fixed with a Genius appointment? I do still have AppleCare.

Intel Mac :: 5inch Display Vertical Blue Line Appeared
Yesterday a vertical blue line appeared on my Mac display, which can be seen all the time but not when it is turned off.I can't make a screenshot off it, you can't see it on them.My Warranty just ran out one month ago.And I didn't used the imac very often, wasn't much gaming or running it the whole day, just using it for school works.Actually I am very disappointed of Apple, bought my first imac because I thought instead of a PC it would last 4 years at least.

Intel Mac :: Vertical Black And White Lines On Screen
Simply using my Imac for watching tv on the web, Hulu, and left to help my wife get groceries in the house. My wife checked her email and closed Safari.

I came back in roughly 10 minutes from when she shut down Safari to see a black screen with white pinstriping, and the mac being totally unresponsive. Shut down and rebooted, sent off the report to Apple, and am now here with seemingly no problems. 

Needless to say, as a photographer this computer is just about as important as my camera. Should I be worried? discovered the thread to this issue, which appears to be quite extensive.

IMac Intel :: New 21.5" Vertical Line On Screen?
I just returned from my local Apple store after checking out the new imac computers. I noticed on many of the 21.5" imacs that there was a vertical line down the left side of the screen that looked like burn-in. It's about one and a quarter inches from the left side of the screen. It is clearly visible using any background color except white. Apple store employees and two Apple Geniuses had no idea what was causing it and hadn't noticed it themselves until I pointed it out to them. They said they would investigate. Has anyone else noticed this? It was on about half of the computers that I looked at in the store.

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 :: 21.5" Flickering Vertical Line In Middle Of Screen?
just got a new iMac from Best Buy (they're closer) and often I see a flicker in the middle of my screen like a vertical line through the whole screen. I notice it when watching video and also scrolling web pages. In dealing with BB, should I just return it and get it replaced or should I call tech support?

MacBook Pro :: Display Now Sports Cool Vertical Blue Line, External Display Shows Static?
ever run across artifacts on their MacBook Pro screens. A few days ago, a pure blue vertical line appeared on my screen. As long as the screen is on, the line is there. In Windows or Mac OS X, it doesn't matter. It is very distracting even though it is only about 1px wide.Another cool feature comes from using an external monitor. If I plug in my Viewsonic 21 inch flat panel, the display shows a lot of noise in the blacks. Looks almost like static. If I switch over to the 9600GT, the problem is not as apparent. It's still there, but more subtle. I am using the Mini DisplayPort to DVI adaptor.

Intel Mac :: Have Vertical Line On Scree Of It?
I have been a Mac user for 20 years because their product has been reliable despite the higher cost. Recently a pink verticle line started left side of screen. My extended care has expired. They charged me $49 to talk to tech support who said it was a hardware problem. They said the cost would be mine. I explained how numerous complaints about this issue is on the internet and they should pay for the repair. i have to drive 50 miles to an authorized Mac repair shop. I am disgusted with their product and lack of concern for an ongoing problem. Probably will not buy another Apple product since they care so little about quality anymore.

IMac :: Display Has Yellow Vertical Line?
I have a 1.83 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo iMac that has developed a vertical yellow line in the display that won't go away even when restarted. It's like a 1 pixel column of dead pixels right in the middle of the screen. I think it's still under warranty. Is this something that can be fixed under the warranty?

MacBook Pro :: Vertical White Lines Across Display - How To Fix It
I have a MacBook Pro from 2008. Recently, the screen appears to have a white foggy film over it, but if you look closer, you can see that it is actually white vertical lines- every other pixel is completely white all the way down. It makes reading really difficult, and editing photos nearly impossible. Occasionally it will just go away for a few minutes or seconds, but it always returns.

OS X Tiger :: Yellow Vertical Line On Mid Screen?
Does anyone have any tips to rid my screen of this line (and another couple - blue and pink that have also appeared about an inch from the right hand side)? They are permanent fixtures on my desktop irrespective of the programme I am running. I have tried resetting my PRAM and NVRAM and have installed and run MacJanitor with no joy as yet.

MacBook Aluminum :: Vertical Red Line Centered On Screen
I recently had a vertical red line develop perfectly centered on my screen. It runs from the top of the screen to the bottom perfectly centered on the screen. It is not noticeable in the web on a white screen as it appears a light pink; however, it is dark red on a black or dark screen. The line is irrespective of OS and the video card hardware and appears to be related to the 13" display as it doesn't show up if I hook up an external monitor.

PowerPC :: Single, Vertical Line/streak On Screen - Is It Fixable
My PB/667 took a fall about 18 mos ago. It's been fine ever since, except there is a single vertical line RIGHT DOWN THE CENTER - top to bottom. It's about two pixels wide and appears to be a bright green/near white color. Any display pixes that fall on this line are not visible.

A coworker suggested that this could be fixed but didn't offer how. Have any of you heard of this sort of issue? Is it fixable?

OS X :: 24" IMac Faint Vertical Line Of Pixels On The Screen?
i noticed a faint vertical line of pixels on the far left of my screen. they weren't black or colored, just faint/dim. i tried switching my desktop background, and the line was still there. i restarted my computer, and the line was still there. i shut down the computer, thinking that i would find the line there in the morning and have to take it to the apple store.

when i turned the computer on the next morning, there was no line. however, later that evening i noticed a reappearance of the line. i restarted the computer and left for a while. when i came back later, i woke the computer from sleep mode, and the line was gone.

there was no line on the computer this morning, although after a couple hours of use, i noticed that two lines had developed on the edge of where i had application windows open -- in this case, both yahoo messenger for mac. curiously, this didn't happen with other windows (finder, safari, etc).

MacBook Pro :: Flickering And Changing Randomly Vertical Line On Screen?
I got my MacBook Pro in August. It is therefore past the 90 day warranty. Just yesterday, while I was working, suddenly a flickering line (it appears about 3 pixels across) appeared about 1/3 of the way from the left of the screen.

The line's pixels reflect those that are supposed to be there, e.g. a solid blue background makes the line flicker blue. In other words, it seems that it is actually black pixels randomly flickering on those lines.

I've heard some things about overheating video cards causing this, but I have still experienced the problem even after letting the Macbook sit powered off overnight. The problem even appears pre-boot, before the Apple logo appears during boot, so it is not software-related (at least not disk-based software.)

The intensity of the flickering seems to change randomly as well. Sometimes the flicker is barely visible, other times the line is almost totally black with only briefly flickering pixels of the right color appearing.

OS X :: Fuzzy White Line Through MBP Display?
I actually don't know how long I've had this problem, as I just sort of noticed it one day (it's not all that readily apparent). The title of this thread basically says it all. There's a "fuzzy," thin white(ish)/translucent band that stretches horizontally across my 15'' glossy MacBook Pro display (purchased in early 2010, so I guess it's considered a mid 2009 model), about an inch up from the bottom of the bezel. It's only super noticeable on top of relatively neutral colors. I'm quite certain that it's a hardware issue, as it doesn't appear in screenshots. I've attached a photograph to this thread so you can see it for yourself.. the band I'm talking about is just above the mouse pointer (and clearly my dock is hidden so you can see it easier). If there are any hardware savvy people here, I'd be most appreciative if you could clue me in to the exact nature of the problem, and whether or not you think I could fix it myself... I think my basic 1 year warranty is still good, but I haven't decided if the problem is worth living without my mac for a few days (or weeks? this is my first apple computer, so I don't know how long repairs typically take).

MacBook Aluminum :: Screen Shows Vertical Line Bar Washout In Black?
i see a distinct, two-inch, vertical washout on my screen that's invisible when brighter colors are displayed. but if it's displaying the color black (screen isn't off) like say, the beginning of a keynote slideshow, i see a vertical bar, top to bottom, about two-inches wide almost centered on the screen that's washed out. so if the screen is supposed to be displaying the color black, the washed out portion is more of like a very dark grey.

MacBook Pro :: Getting Blue Vertical Lines All Over That White On The Screen?
My screen always showed blue vertical lines on anything that is white on my Macbook Pro screen, but when I moved the screen back and forth a few times the blue lines just gone. It always happens when I took the Macbook Pro from a bag and waked it up and once and a while during normal usage. I took picture when the blue lines happen but I couldn't post it on the forum.

I sent my Macbook Pro to local Apple Center but they couldn't find the problem. They has checked the screen connector for me but the problem still exist.

MacBook :: When I Move Screen Up Or Down A White Thin Line Flashes Across The Screen?
there are two things that the macbook is doing to me. one is that sometimes when i move the screen up or down (the hinge is rather stiff) a white (thin) line flashes across the screen. but recently, while randomly browsing through the internet, the screen almost... i guess faded to a gray screen, but like gradually, and not like a kernel error, like the display just faded away. happened twice in a row, did a battery pull and now wont do it again.

IMac :: 21.5" Vertical Black Line/Mark Down Left Hand Side Of Screen?
I have only recently started noticing this, it is mostly visible on the white screen at boot up but just faintly noticed it now against my background.

It is a fading black line going down the left hand side of the screen, it starts at the top kind of fades in the middle then comes out again.

I honestly have no idea what this is, i will try catch a picture on my phone soon and post it up.

Cheers.

UPDATE: Sometimes the line is clear, sometimes it is faint and even sometimes it isn't even there!
