    Hi guys, this 20" 2009 imac of mine.... I recently noticed that there seems to be a kind of whitish stripes on the screen. Is this a sign of the lcd's rotting ....

    ive seen and also hv an imac 17" with a faulty screen...a slim vertical line, which is visible at all times, from the apple logo screen to the desktop.

    So my worry is, if this is how the vertical lines begin, with just a whitish strip !

    I am actually in the midst of disposing another 20" imac of mine, it as an 2008 model, which does not have any of those whitish strips on the lcd. So, i am kinda considering if i should let go the 2008 model or retain it...in the event the 2009 model's lcd does fail...

    Any one u guys have an experience with these kinda whitish strips .....

    That is a common problem with that style iMac. It won't harm the machine and isn't a sign of a failing LCD.

    You're welcome. In the listing for that iMac, make sure you note the lines.

    That appears to be dust. It should not impact the life of the machine.

    Thx intell. It never occured to my mind thT it could be dust. But it does ring a bell, as this imac was cluttered with dust like anything! From the rear fan to the ram slots... Its surely a relief knowing that it could be dust ..... Thx.
