    Hello

    I have a late-2012 imac, purchased in May 2013

    I noticed today that I can see icons and bars when i have other applications open. It's hard to explain.

    For instance I can see the outline of the dock icons when playing full screen video.

    It's most noticeable when on the logon page:

    How do I fix this? Take it to an Apple store? I've tried just rebooting it but hasn't made any difference. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Yep, image retention. I'd get the screen replaced. Did it just start doing this?

    Yes, just started doing it today. The weather in Paris is quite hot this past week so not sure if that would make a difference?

    Is it def a fault? Would Apple replace the screen or the graphics or...?
