    Hi guys,

    last night I (carefully) removed my 2013 iMac's screen in order to replace the HDD with an SSD. I used to repair computers for a living so I am well aware how careful you need to be.

    However, I connected everything back up, and this is what I have - big 3" grey line running down the screen. I have checked the connections etc, put the old HDD back in to rule that out, but no luck. Could I really have damaged the whole screen doing this? Do you think it could just be a faulty connection?

    Any advice is appreciated!!

    Yeah I have tried re-plugging it in quite a few times, all connections seem to be sitting securely. I can't see any obvious faults with the wiring or connectors, but I just can't believe that the monitor could have developed a fault whilst doing this - it was on and working 10 minutes before.
