    Hi!

    I have an annoying problem with my iMac's (intel) display. I carried it once with big care somewhere (I was very careful), and I wrapped it in clothes. Now, when I turned it on I observed dust on the screen, which I couldn't get rid of, so I realized that it's INSIDE the iMac (maybe it went in through the cd slot).
    Here are some pictures:

    The iMac is still under guarantee. Do you think it can be cleaned, and is this a guarantee-issue?

    Thanks!

    rinse it off in a bucket of water to remove the particles.

    Take it back. They are supposed to be sealed.

    I had this happen to two 20" ACD's.

    iGary, and what did they do to your ACD at the service? Did they repair it or cleaned it (if it's possible)?
