    The screen went black along with a ''pew'' noise, I'm still able to see the screen with a bright flashlight but in the meantime I'm using an external monitor.

    Luckily it's covered by Applecare until 2016.

    Will apple try fix it or give me a new iMac?

    First time around they'll probably just fix it by replacing the display or anything else that's needed. If something happens again that's display related, you may have a higher probably of a total replacement (I'm in a similar boat, with Apple Care until October 2016, already dealt with two screen replacements on this 2013 27" -- a 5k replacement for the third screen issue, if it happens, would be nice LOL!)

    They won't usually replace unless you have had the same problem fixed 2 x before.
