capricia 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB Since this morning my display of my 27" iMac show the menubar in the middle of the display and above there are a lot of vertical lines in multi colors. Now I think this one is not a problem with the driver, I think there is a problem with the graphic chi
jmczaja 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB After waking the iMac from sleep I began to see this flickering problem. The machine was not hot whatsoever so I dont think the issue is heat related.
artka 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB I turned it on and the flickering and menu bar on the top portion of the screen is happening. It does this for roughly five minutes then it goes to normal?
pschaf 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB Seems to be getting worse. Quick flicker of bar at the lower half of the screen. No real way to reproduce. Have tried restarting and also sleep.
pschaf 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB Last night i watched a 30 min programme on BBC iPlayer and the 2-3 inch white lines kept popping up every few seconds horizontally across the screen. The screen also went black momenterally on 6 occasions.
billybuds 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB momentary black screen and the flickering. Seems to be very sporadic, won't happen for a few hours and then seems to happen every 20 seconds or so. Also the computer sometimes won't wake from sleep
Gable31 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB Screen has flickering and going black. Have called Apple tech support to begin replacement process. Makes me question the life span of the LED screen technology.
MarkyJ 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB This morning it started to get worse and I also got he menu bar 2/3 down the screen, with the vertical 'barcode' look above it. The mouse moved off the bottom of the screen and re-entered on the top.
Jorel 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB (flickers, blackouts, line , displaced screen, ...) and the slow wifi issue
ichbinglitched 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB mine flickered on first boot (on the "select your language" screen) a few days ago and started spazzing out completely
QuickbookMDD 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB this problem occurred nonstop upon first boot up. I had it plugged in a power strip with a 2 macbook pro's as well. I then put the 27" in a new power strip on its own with its own outlet with nothing else plugged into it and this problem hasn't reoccur
frodo20 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB It happens mostly when I switch on after the display has been asleep for a while.
stevo77 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB I then left it switched on over night and when I woke it from sleep this morning the screen started jumping up and down and displayed horizontal lines at the top and bottom.
McLaurin 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB My screen (iMac 27") is fine UNTIL I go into a more graphics intense process. If I go into PhotoBooth, turn on some effects .. then BAM, there go the flickers. Flickers (plus screen going black intermittently) continue until restart, even if I quit
Goldfrog 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB The first thing I noticed was a single white line going from the top to the bottom of the screen as I shut down... noticeable on the blue screen. And it went black a couple of times.
Peter Nuding 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB Mine was fine for the first week now, but tonight it suddenly started doing this, and quite often so, i get about 3 to 5 of the pixel-garbage flickers per minute and the blackout every 5-10 minutes
rmp09 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB I have the same flickering problem the moment I turned on the computer for the first time. The screen goes black for a microsecond at times as well. It has been intermittent.
AstonMartinDB7 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB I get the same symptoms rebuilt the OS several times following a driver problem for my printer and thought the flickering had gone but it is back with the lines and black screens!
gustaven2000 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB Sometimes the screen completely blacks out for 2-3 seconds on intervals of 5-6 secs and the machine becomes useless.
lordrobert 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB after about 35min I got the first flickering. And it keeps returning irregularly.
jogness 21.5" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB I have a new 21.5" iMac (ATI Radeon HD 4670) and am experiencing the exact same flickering issue
opeddler 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB started about a week after i got mine
StileselitS 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB I got my new 27' and problems started immediately - screen flickering.
Eisenzahn 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB I’ve sent back my first iMac 27’’ because of a crack in the glass. The glass of my second 27’’ is ok but it has this flickering failure.
kawo 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB After replacing the ATI graphics drivers the flickering is definitely gone on my machine.
fredpontes 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB I got my Imac 27 1 week ago and the problems started 2 days ago. I had the white lines and some blackouts.
bfreebody 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB The 2-3 inches of static appear at random intervals on the screen, I've also experienced the screen going completely blank from time to time.
Brian Pratt 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB I installed the 10.6.2 update last night and I'm seeing the horizontal bar flickering this morning. So the 10.6.2 update didn't fix everything, at least.
Soaringoak 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB dentical issue here... 2-3" bands flicker horizontally across screen randomly... happening less often is the complete blacking out, but it happens.
dicktwi 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB I restarted once and I haven't seen the problem again.
SirR-G 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB The first time it occurred was after running in Windows for a bit--the computer had gotten quite hot so I thought it may be a thermal issue. I noticed it almost immediately after rebooting into OS X at the gray Apple logo screen.
Stephen Stark 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB There was a similar issue with my MacBook Pro, but there were two settings for the display—when you switched to the low power mode (I think) it cured it. I don't think there are similar setting changes that can be made to the iMac.
Richmond1138 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB My first 27" iMac went and died on me after about a week. The replacement has developed this screen flicker problem, including the flashes, the momentary black-screen and failure of "vertical hold" with the screen shifting down.
