Well, that's certainly something I wasn't expecting to see on my iMac (24-inch, Early 2009) screen!!!

 

Today, I was checking out some photography site I frequent and I noticed some horizontal lines in a picture, which was showing a clear blue sky. I thought that was strange and I moved closer to check what were they, believing that they were in the picture. Imagine my surprise when I figured out that these were from a "ghost" image of Mail screen. Mail is one application which is constantly open on my iMac, so it somehow has managed to leave a ghost image on the monitor.

 

Now, I always use a screen saver, which changes randomly, and since this is not a CTR display, I wasn't expecting to see something like that. Is it something I can do about it, is it something that can be removed if I take my Mac to a service station, or am I doomed to live with it? The funny thing is that my Apple Care just expired a month or so ago!!!! Darn!

 

Any help would be appreciated.
