Thin black line running down the screen

Just did latest update and noticed on the reboot a thin black line running down the left hand side of the screen 8cm in apex.
Any one else got an issue or fixed the issue?

Sounds like a problem with the display. Contact your local Apple Store or AASP and make an appointment to have the display looked at. > Apple - Support - iMac - Service FAQ

  • Why do I have a thin blue line running down the screen?

    There is a thin blue line running vertically down my imac screen a little to the right of the centre. It disappeared for a while - i think after I tapped a certain key - but then re-appeared and will not go away. What is it? How do I get rid of it? Mark

  • My ipod has two thin black lines running across the screen. What causes this, and is there a fix?

    Suddenly, my Classic ipod got two narrow, black lines runnings horizontally across the screen.  Will thes eventually go away or is the screen damaged?
    Thanks!

    You can work through the remaining five 5 R's of troubleshooting.

    It might also be a good idea to let the iPod's battery fully drain. Then charge it back up and restore it once more in iTunes.
    Otherwise, it's likely a hardware issue with the iPod's LCD display, meaning you'll need to take or send your iPod in for service either via Apple or a third party repair service. Here is Apple's repair pricing.

    Note that they don't actually repair the device, but exchange it for one of the same generation, model, and capacity.  A third party service will actually replace the damage part for a little less.  Google "iPod screen repair" and you should get a number of results to work with.

  • My iPad has  a series of thin black lines running across the right side of the screen.  They look like pages in a book.

    How does one get rid of the thin black lines running across the right side of the screen?  They look like the edges of pages.....  This is an iPad3 and the lines have been there since I took the iPad out of the box.

    Then a Visit to an Apple Store or AASP (Authorized Apple Service Provider) is suggested...
    Be sure to make an appointment first...

  • Vertical lines running down the screen

    I am seeing a few vertical lines running down the screen, from top to bottem. They are quite thin (one yellow, one purple and one light blue). Do you know what causes this and what the cure is.
    Thanks & happy holiday,

  • Vertical black line running down imac screen

    This morning i noticed for the first time (wasn't there yesterday) a thin black vertical line running down my 21' imac screen.
    Any suggestions?

    Take a screen shot & view that in Preview, move the Preview window around, if you see 2 black lines it a Video card/VRAM problem, if the line does not move moving the pic around then it's the LCD or cable.

  • First day... Lines running down the screen.

    Sigh.
    So I get my BRAND NEW, 2.0 GHz Black Macbook today, and I'm wondering if something is wrong with it.
    In looking at my screen, it appears that there are lines panning downwards, like it is progressive scanning. (They're a lighter color, and don't appear to be normal)
    The lines are horizontal, and run from top to bottom and at the right angle it's obvious that it is going on.
    Just wondering if I should take this in and it is repairable, or if others have experienced this problem or what...
    Man this *****.

    If you have a new machine (within 14 days) and you're having a problem, you should be able to have Apple replace it for you. I have heard of other people experiencing similar problems (albeit only a few)... but if you feel your machine is clearly behaving in a way it should not, there is no reason not to bring it back to Apple and have it replaced.

  • Squiggly line running down my screen

    I've just noticed a random squiggly line* running down the screen on the bottom half center of my iMac (Intel Core i5 27 inch) screen. I don't believe I'd noticed it before, had this iMac for a few months now. It's very light, more noticeable when the screen happens to be dark but it's definitely there. It's not ON the screen, almost seems like its pressed between two plates if the screen were made of two plates. Tried different screen savers and desktops, it's most definetely there. Haven't had this iMac 6 months, am I still under warranty? And what with the squiggly line??? Anyone? Thank You! MG
    *imagine a particularly intoxicated snail traveling from point-a to point-b and the line it would leave behind. THATS what it looks like. And no, a nail hasn't been anywhere near my iMac

    "Squiggly line"? Only an Apple Tech can tell you. You have a one-year warranty. If you bought Apple Care, you have longer coverage. In any event, call Apple, tell them what you see, and when you bought the computer. It's really a matter for them to resolve.

  • I have a thin horizontal line running across my screen about 1/4 of the way from the bottom of the monitor. Why is it there and how do I get rid of it?

    There is a thin horizontal line running across the width of my screen about 1/4 of the way from the bottom. This line, along with an occasional vertical line about a 1/3 of the way from the right side of my monitor, started appearing about 7 days ago. Usually the line would disappear after a restart but now it seems intent on staying. Does anyone know what is going on and how can I resolve this?

  • My screen has greens and black lines going down the middle an I can't access anything. What could be wrong? It happened all the sudden.

    My screen has greens and black lines going down the middle an I can't access anything. What could be wrong? It happened all the sudden.

    You're welcome! I feel your pain - both "closest" Apple Stores to me are almost 2 hours away. When I called for another problem under warranty the AppleCare guy checked my zip code and found an AASP (Authorized Apple Service Provider) 20 minutes from me I had no idea existed. They diagnosed the problem (bad bluetooth keyboard) and ordered a new one for me. The AppleCare person will probably use this http://www.apple.com/buy/locator/service/ so you can check it now. And AppleCare could well diagnose your problem over the phone anyway. And I feel certain it wasn't something you did inadvertently.
