Power your iMac by replacing the power supply.

Stap 1 Power Supply  ¶ 

The next few steps bring your hands close to the exposed face of the power supply. Do not touch the face of the power supply to avoid a high voltage shock from the many large capacitors attached to the board.

Stap 1 Power Supply  ¶ 

  • The next few steps bring your hands close to the exposed face of the power supply. Do not touch the face of the power supply to avoid a high voltage shock from the many large capacitors attached to the board.

  • Remove four T10 Torx screws securing the power supply to the rear case.

  • Two fine-thread 7 mm T10 Torx

  • Two coarse-thread 7 mm T10 Torx

Stap 2  ¶ 

Rotate the top edge of the power supply slightly away from the rear case. The single-wire connector near the upper left corner of the power supply is small and held very tightly in its socket, making it inherently difficult to remove. Be sure to pull only on the connector during removal, as pulling the cable will surely cause it to break.
