How can I get this connector?
I did the HDD replacement by myself according to Mac mini Model A1283 Hard Drive Replacement .
However, I did a mistake and broke the thermal sensor connector.
I could not find it anywhere even the whole sensor unit.
Actually I need the connector part excluding sensor part.
I need your help.
You don't really need the thermal sensor, my iMac 27" doesn't have one connected to its HDD because it has an SSD which is incompatible with the jumpers that the sensor uses. Basically, it is generally okay if its not connected. The computer will think its 128° C and the fans will run mad. If your okay with the sound of the fan (which I am) then you can keep it like that.
If you insist on a thermal sensor;
I couldn't find any specifically for your mac mini, however I do believe they are (somewhat) interchangeable
I did the same thing on my 2009 Mini (3,1). The little black connector came completely off of the interconnect board, leaving a flush surface at J210. From the photos I've seen (http://s1.guide-images.ifixit.com/igi/hZ...), it looks like it just sits on the surface of the board. I don't see how the 2 leads actually connect with anything on the board itself. I could glue it back on, but that doesn't seem right. I could solder each of the 2 wire ends to something, but I'm not sure to what.
Any help will be most appreciated!
