My power supply went kaput and my iMac would not turn on! I found "iFixit" through a search on the web. The repair was more than cost efficient.
iFixit showed me what to look for and exactly how to disassemble my iMac and what part was needed to repair it. I ordered the part and it was shipped. The very same day the part was delivered, it was installed. My iMac was reassembled and it worked!
I was content to shelve my old machine since I just purchased a Mac Book Pro. Thanks to "iFixit", I have my iMac back and running for $149. The access to the right parts are a plus. The technical information is a must. Never be too afraid to try new things. Thanks! iFixit!

Two weeks prior to the IMac failing completely I noticed that the PC shut down and couldn't be turned on. I found some help on the internet that allowed me to reset the power supply. Pull the cord, wait 10 seconds, hold in the power button for 5 to 10 seconds, release, then plug in and power up normally.
The power supply failure occurred two weeks later so I ordered the power supply through ifixit and followed the procedures to replace it.
The ifixit steps were very clear. I used a bath tub mat with suction cups to get the outer glass off. The rest of the procedure went well. I did need an extra hand to hold the screen up while I disconnected the four connectors. The hardest part was making sure the glass was clean when I put it back together.
Be careful but don't be afraid of replacing the power supply. Next time, I would use individual torx screw drivers instead of the multiple tool torx set. The short multitool torx set is a bit awkward and I had to be careful that it didn't slip and hit the glass.
