How can I fix my Display Problem with a lot of colourful lines...

Mac 17'' 2.0Ghz Model A1208

Hello everyone,

How can I fix my Display Problem with a lot of VERTICAL colourful lines all over my display. (OS X 10.6.8) Everything else works.....

  • First of all what is the issue (I think it is the display itself - but how can i be sure)
  • Any ideas how I can fix it quick and dirty ;-) ..... it is an old iMac and I don´t think it´s worth it to spend to much money on it.....

Thanks in advance

Best regards from Vienna

First thing to do it to open it up and examine the capacitors (cans) for swelling and/or leakages.
