    What's the damage to this iMac 24" screen?

    Hi, Bought this iMac and did not know it was damaged: Does that look like LCD burn-in or is it condensation? It's that way when the iMac is off too. The yellowish appearance is most likely because it was under a yellow light.

    Ugh I think I killed another motherboard!
