hi alejandro,

are the pixels dead or stuck ???

some people tried different techniques to get rid of those problems - some might work (i can't tell you - none of my computers had this problem) - maybe you should try something like that first.

and about the new lcd ->

as far as i know (or as far as i googled it) - the 20" lcd is a LM201W01 - BUT it's different (the apple style different) - all the other - cheaper - LM201W01's won't work.

as you can read on macrumors - even an lcd from a real g5 didn't work on the core duo (had the same issue with a 17" g5 isight that played dead when the lcd from a regular g5 was connected - the lcd's had the same model number)

so i think you need exactly the lcd of that particular model - and that cost "only" ~ 900€ - what a bargain compared to a new iMac (kiddin - add 199€ and you get a new iMac)

i think the "cheapest" way would be getting a working core duo iMac and selling the faulty one - but be careful - there are many many bad ones out there.

ebay is your best friend for iMac G5 parts since there are lots of dead units out there (faulty logic boards).
