    Hi,

    I have a question (whoa). I have an iMac Dual Core, bought in mid-2007 (it's the White Plastic version, not the newer Aluminium with the glass-display).

    For some time now I had some dark spots, kind of shadow like in the bottom left corner. I wasn't bothered too much by them, but they got bigger, and now I have these in all of the corners except the bottom right one.

    Anyone got any ideas how to get rid of them? (no, no three-year guarantee plan ... stupid me), or if not if it'd mean to replace the whole display or if it's just some cleaning (I talk money-wise here ...)

    I attach two not-so-good pictures (the background is plain-white and the image is a bit enhanced ...) so you guys can see what I mean.


    Any help is really appreciated and thanks in forward.

    greets.

    Mine's developed the same (20" Late '07). I'm taking it in to the Apple Store tomorrow. Granted, it's been developing for a while, I'm just getting around to getting it fixed cause my USB ports are randomly shutting off.


    As to the question at hand that I totally missed. Honestly, all I can think of is find the tear down guide, and see if you can find an LCD panel on eBay.
