    A green vertical line has suddenly appeared on my 2012 non retina MacBook Pro screen. I was browsing the internet when it suddenly appeared and won't go away. Ive turned my MacBook off and on, but its still there.

    Any suggestions please?

    - problem with display (itself)
    - problem with connecting cable (display to motherboard)
    - problem with GPU (on motherboard)

    Depending on what the repair estimates are, might be time to consider something newer.

    One other thought:
    You didn't say if this was a retina or non-retina display.
    I'm thinking if you took it to an Apple Store, and it's retina, they -might- cover it under "StainGate". If you don't understand what that means, look it up.

    Looks like a display connector or gpu issue to me. Is it a retina?? Has it got a dgpu??
