    Hi,
    I have a pixel-width magenta line running vertically across the screen of my G5 iMac. Has anybody else encountered this problem and is there any way of fixing it?
    My warranty runs out at the end of august.

    that should be a big enough defect that apple should replace your unit with a working one.

    I agree that it definitely sounds like a hardware problem and would be covered by the warranty.

    However it is very unlikely Apple will replace the whole unit, after the initial DOA period (I think its 4 weeks with Apple) the computer will get fixed and not replaced.

    Had one on my 23 inch display

    Only showed up on white and some colors of yellow.

    Just bring your mac to an apple store and show it too them.

    I got mine fixed in just a few days. :cool:
