    While using my imac today a thin red line appeared on the screen about four inches from the left side.Anything i can try before i head for service.Tried rebooting but the line is still there when i start the imac up on the white screen so i assume its an LED problem.
    Bought it on amazon so can i bring it into apple store a few miles away.I assume im still under warranty but this really sucks.Hope I dont have to send it back to amazon.

    Leave the keyboard and mouse at home. They wont need it.

    Do a backup, they're not responsible for your data even if they shouldn't be touching it.

    Thanks to all.Noticed that along with my red line 3/4 of the screen is darker than the other 1/4.This came along when the red line showed up.
