Hi ALL,

I have a iMac Late 2009 24" iMac Intel Core-2 Du/2.66 MHz-640GB.

Sinds a view months I see like shadows from the upper left and right corners bending down to halfway the middle of my screen.

But now I notice also the same shadow coming from the upper site in the middle down.

Does anyone knows what this is?

Could it be that this is dirt behind the glass of the screen?

Could it be nicotine smoke behind the glass of the screen, my wife and I are both smokers.

IF, this is so ... how can I clean it??

Thanks in advance ...

    Hi Dimaxum

    I think you right, the Glass panel needs to be removed and cleaned..

    Your options are, take it to your Local Apple Store/Apple Service Provider or clean it yourself as shown in the following YouTube Video's.
