IMac :: Black Vertical Line Down Left Hand Side Of Screen?

Dec 5, 2010

I've had this iMac about a year now, and i have had this problem for a while but thought i'de leave it for abit and see if it heals its self. As sometimes the line is more visible than other times and sometimes it's not even there!

I have 2 pictures which i snapped with my iPhone, so i will link you too them.

The line is not majorly visible, but it is just annoying considering i payed �1000 for this iMac.

Picture1: Line overlapping my iTunes.


Picture2: Line on boot up.

Intel Mac :: Vertical Black And White Lines On Screen

Mar 5, 2012

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 :: 21.5" Vertical Black Line/Mark Down Left Hand Side Of Screen?

Sep 11, 2010

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.


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

IMac :: Display Got Black And White Lines / On Starting Screen Goes Blank

Jul 22, 2008

So for the first time in over a year since I purchased it, my iMac crashed twice.The first time was this morning, i went to do something and the screen went black, and my secondary display got black and white lines. I had to restart. And the boot screen with the apple logo hung around for a while.

Then, later on the screen went whacky after trying to wake it from sleep (not full sleep just display sleep) and had a bunch of moving lines and then I couldn't see anything. So luckily I got a picture. After restart, it seems fine.I'll call apple care in the morning, but thought i'd try my luck here.

OS X :: Black Screen With A Flashing White Line?

Aug 8, 2009

I have an iMac 2.8 24 inch, about Two years old running 10.5.7 , when I start the computer it shows the normal Gray screen for about 30 seconds, then the screen goes all Black , but with a small flashing white line ( _ ) in the top Left hand side corner.

It just stays all Black for ever , I then hold down the On / Off button and turn off the computer, I then hold down the keyboard '' option key '' and press the on button at the same time , then I get the option to start from the main HDD , I click the Icon and the computer then starts normally , and every thing runs ok.

Can some one please tell me what I have to do to get my iMac to start up normally again , Ive run Repair Disk permissions but the problem still occurs . Over the last few day's Ive been trying out a few new applications, so not too sure if this has any thing to do with this current problem

OS X :: 24" IMac Faint Vertical Line Of Pixels On The Screen?

Mar 12, 2009

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 :: White Vertical Line Down The Right Side Of Internal Display

Jun 21, 2014

I have a white vertical line down the right side of my internal brand new macbook pro 13" display. I've done the following:

-Shutdown the computer, and restarted in Safe Mode by pressing the Shift key after the restart tone

-Shutdown the computer, and restarted by pressing Command, Option, P & R after the restart tone

-Checked display resolution, Best for Retina

-Hooked it up to a Dell external monitor and via projection to screen. There are no lines on the external or secondary screens

-Just curious, I ran a color utility which can not repair 4 items, maybe this is another issue. 

This is a brand new Macbook Pro, just out of the box. It was fine for two days without any issues, fine last night while in use, opened it up this morning with the line.

IMac Intel :: Vertical White And Gray Bars Appear?

Mar 7, 2009

Twice in the last couple of days, these white and gray vertical bars/lines would appear on my IMAC screen. In between those times, my screen just went black, but I can tell the IMAC was still on, because it wasn't a pitch black as if the computer was off. Each time, the only way I could get the screen to appear back to normal was to turn off the computer and turn it back on?

This is not good. This is my second MAC. The first one after a year and a half, just poofed up in smoke. (Seriously, that is exactly what happened. I was sitting there, and all of a sudden the screen went black and a puff of smoke appeared from the back.) And now after owning this second one for almost two years, I've suddenly started getting these vertical white and gray bars and the black screen.

Anyone have any idea? I was simply looking up info on a website when these events happened.

Software :: Getting Blank White Screen On New IMac?

Oct 31, 2009

For some reason, a friend of mine is having issues with her new iMac (one generation back). Here is what she emailed me about the situation:

Here�s what happens in greater detail. I quit or force quit all open applications. I press the ON/OFF button until the screen goes black. I wait several minutes and press the same button ON. I get the Apple cord sound and a blank white screen. The Apple icon does not come on; nothing happens. That�s when I close it down again and disconnect it from the back and reconnect it (a few seconds). Then I press the O/F button and the Apple cord sound AND the Apple icon come back, the system revs back up. All all is well � except for the ball coming back...
