iMac 17" with vertical lines, replace screen the correct solution?
I have a iMac 17" 1.83 Core Duo with the well known vertical line problem. From what I understand they are caused by defective multiplexers in the screen itself.
Now I have a second iMac of the same series with a defective mainboard but good screen!
I could swap-out the screen from the other iMac with the vertical lines. But! I heard that the vertical lines where caused by a defect in the mainboard, so that they will come back very quickly. Is this true? Or can I save the system by replacing the screen?
Is this a good question?
