    So this happened to my iMac. I think it still works coz i can hear the familiar sounds it makes. Before I take to Ynzal or Senco, is this fixable? Anyone with this experience? Tia

    That could either be GPU or a display issue. It's repairable but check the cost if you think it would be worth it.

    Try using an external monitor. See how things go.

    great tip by cybersniper, If the external monitor worked only the LCD is damaged. otherwise, the board is toast, and that could be costly

    Were you able to resolve this? Mine is kinda similar except for the screen displaying nothing at all.

    Mine was just under three years. BTB replaced the screen, turns out that wasn’t the problem. New screen is dead as well
