Dead Pixels

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014

there is a thin red line down the side of my iMac G5 screen. From what i read im assuming these are dead pixels. Does anyone agree? if you do, do you know how i would deal with that?

    Not just dead pixels, but a broken connection to an entire line of pixels. If it is under warrantee Apple will replace that since it exceeded their "# of dead pixels" policy.

    Otherwise you will need a Soldering iron, magnifying glass, solder, thin wire, twine, two goats, and a life preserver to realize you should have bought a new screen to begin with.
