    My daughters printer fell down and hit the screen but did not damage the glass. But the screen shows all kind a funny lines. Is it repairable?:(

    What exact iMac are we talking about?
    Do you have some kind of home insurance that can cover the possible repair?
    www.ifixit.com has a lot of guides and parts (though a bit more expensive than other sources like eBay) on how to repair almost every aspect of Macs.

    No home Insurance:( and it is a Imac (2006) I think I could try to buy a VGA adapter and connect a regular Monitor. Would this work?

    If it is a 24" iMac bought in 2008, it is not a G5 iMac (if that is what you mean with - ah you edited your post, why does it say "iMac 2006" now?), then try this: http://www.ifixit.com/Mac-Parts/iMac-Intel-24"


    For further information about "EMC" numbers, expand "every system" here.

    Is your iMac Intel or PowerPC? Is it aluminum or plastic?
