    Hi all.

    Our eMac seems to be developing a green tint in the bottom right hand corner of its screen. I've done some quick searching online and it seems that a few people have suggested a cold boot so it runs the degaussing process on a startup.

    I left the eMac off for about an hour, unplugged. It did the degauss once it was plugged back in and "seems" to have removed nearly all of the green tint.

    There are a few threads on various forums when I search on Google about this issue but they have no conclusive reasons why this is happening.

    Could my eMac be developing a fault at all? I'm not too sure if anything magnetic has been placed on our table near the eMac so this may be the reason.

    Thanks for looking!

    Hello Pixellated! Thanks for the quick response. :)

    I have no speakers nearby at all and don't know of anything we own which would be magnetic enough to affect the screen.

    I'll be leaving it unplugged tonight when we go to bed so it degauses itself when we start it tomorrow. Hopefully then all signs of a problem will be gone!

    Ok, good luck. Also, if it is not fixed, the people at your local genius bar would be pleased to help for no cost even if your out of your APP. (they can also recommend fixes etc...)
