PowerSupply Swap went easy on 2010ish 27" iMac
1 - 2 uren
Power Supply went out.
easy as pie w/your help iFixIt!!!
The power supply went south on my crappy iMac, it was barely ever used and NEVER moved or near any thing hot. This upset me as I've only had this for a year and a half. bought it from my brother in law who purchased it new 8 months before that but wasn't using it.
Any way the fix was easy with instructions provided online by iFixIt. I recommend the tools even though they're expensive, I often fix PC's so for me these tools will be useful. One thing I did NOT get was a good glass cleaner which is needed for such a task unless you have a dust/static free area. Plus the screws that the Power Supply grab onto were a pain in the rear to get back on!!!
I don't like Apple products and thought I'd give this a chance, now I'm putting Windows 8 w/boot camp and giving this POS to my son. He will make better use of it.
Thank you iFixIt for the tools, hardware and instructions on making this swap easy as pie, took 30 minutes only because of the screws the power supply grab onto.
