    I know this is an old thread...but I too have (had) the same problem with my Late '06 C2D 17" iMac.  I didn't start having problems with it until about a month ago.  I had several lines on my screen and after reading all the post here I didn't even bother to call Apple and waste my time only to be disappointed. 

     

    Rather than ditching a machine that still works perfect other than the vertical lines, I decided to do a little research.  I wanted to make sure that I wasn't having a graphics card or logic board issue.  So I took a screen shot of my desktop and emailed the picture to my iPhone.  After looking at the picture I notice there was no colorful lines at all.  I knew then it was my LCD that was bad and not the graphics card or logic board.  Again, rather than ditching my machine, I decided to go to my local Micro Center and I purchased myself a nice 24" LCD monitor on sale for $79 bucks...connected it to my iMac and now I have a nice (bigger) beautiful monitor with absolutely no colors.  I know this may seem like a hassle to some but I wasn't about to throw away my machine that I spent my hard earned money for when alls I have to do was add an external display and solve my issue without having to deal with Apple.  Besides, in 2013 a 17" monitor is too small anyway. 

     

    Just a suggestion to anyone out there who doesn't want to throw away a good machine for a LCD problem that Apple was very much aware of...
