Apple announces extended repair program

Apple has announced its willingness to repair first-generation iMac G5 models that suffer from power or video-related problems which can be attributed to a specific type of component failure. A limited number of iMac G5 computers that were sold between approximately September 2004 and June 2005 are potentially affected by this issue, which Apple has now said it will be happy to correct, even with machines that are out of the standard one-year warranty.

According to Apple, symptoms of affected systems can include "scrambled or distorted video," no video, or no power. Systems can also show white streaks at the bottom of the screen. Reports on the Internet have linked these problems to capacitor failure or overheating.
