Hi! I am new to this forum. I was at work, carefully wiped the screen with a damp cloth as always. No immediate problems. Then I had to move my computer and closed the lid. As I opened it a little over 1" wide vertical line at the left of the display had appeared. It´s multicolored and flickers. Super annoying. Minor panic ensued. Then I found this thread; http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=948389 I am now hoping it will pass in time or that wiping it off with a cloth for spectacles will do the trick. The stripe does not appear in screenshots. It does not appear to be a pressure issue seeing as how even the stripe is. Thing is, I did not do anything I haven´t done before, so it seemed to appear out of thin air. I attached photos. Is this the result of the wiping or could it be magnetized or the result of static electricity? Does anyone know? Is this a common issue with the new MBA? I am pretty sure that it does get covered by my insurance, seeing as the warranty won´t cover liquid damage. For now, I guess I will live with the annoyance and hope it passes. Give it a day or two before I take it to an apple store. I bought it july this year on the apple online store.
