HI Jennie
If your using a recent Mac with say Maverics OSX then it may be in an off screen window.
Try these Keys
Ctrl & Page up (Arrow Key).... then Choose Movie Window
Ctrl & Page down (Arrow Key)....
The Settings for this are kept in Settings / Mission Control

I think this will allow you to see the offscreen alternate windows.

Netflix is an on line Internet player from a Paid service.

I don't use the same method or app as you so I'm not sure this will work. I use an Application to play movies from my external hard drive and I get the same off screen window that you seem to be describing.

Good Luck

Other Notes:
I use VLC to play all my movies of my hard drive (a free download & it plays every codec type avi, mp4 etc) I keep the Icon for VLC in my bottom dock.
When I double click the VLC icon in the dock the window switches to the current movie playing,
If your using a different movie player program then just double click it's icon in the bottom dock. (e.g. Quicktime Player)

If you do switch to VLC then use the Cmd I (Info) on each type of movie (e.g. .mp4) In the Cmd I , Menu , choose "Open With" and select VLC as the preferred player (after you have installed VLC of course) then click the "Change All" button.
From then on all MP4's movie types will be played by VLC.

Possible failed video card. 3rd LED indicates MLB and GPU are communicating: (CAUTION! There is high voltage from the powersupply so any attempt to open iMac other than removing glass panel to see the indicators...should be done by authorized ACMT)

  • LED 1 - Indicates that the trickle voltage from the power supply is detected by the main logic board. This LED will remain ON while the iMac is connected to the AC power. The LED will remain on even when the computer has been shut down or put to sleep. The LED will turn off only if the AC power is disconnected or the power supply is faulty.
  • LED 2 - Indicates that the main logic board has detected proper power from the power supply when the computer is turned on. This LED will be ON when the computer is turned on and the power supply is working correctly.
  • LED 3 - Indicates that the computer and the video card are communicating. This LED will be ON when the computer is communicating properly with the video card. If LEDs 1 and 2 are ON and you heard the startup sound, but LED 3 is OFF, then the video card might be installed incorrectly or need replacement.
  • LED 4 - Indicates that the computer and the LCD display panel are communicating. This LED will be ON when the computer is turned on and video signal is being generated. If the LED is ON and there is no image on the LCD display panel, the LCD display panel or inverter might be installed incorrectly or need replacement.

The only way you can do this is to use web based television like Crackle or Web360. The problem is you are tied to what they wish to show you. You can use YouTube for some series, and also your local television stations have some type of online content.

As far as remote control is concerned, you can use a wireless key board and mouse on your lap.

Here is some reading for you.

same thing happens to me - most of the time it will just randomly freeze; occasionally i get an unresponsive black screen. this 24' aluminum imac usually has startup problems also - sometimes it will "gong" and nothing else; sometimes the apple logo will come up and then nothing else; sometimes it will load the logo and then spin for a few seconds and then freeze - the only option is to manually shut down. there is no rhyme or reason to it
