One day I've turned on my iMac 21.5'' iMac and worked one it for about 30 minutes, then i went for a quick meal to my kitchen :) after i got back I've noticed that iMac is off, I've tried to turn it on but there was no signs of life whats so ever, straight away i went on to ifixit.com forums throe my laptop and searched what could be causing that and i found few ways how to test it, so i took it apart and ind out that its 99% that this is the power supply fault.
To be honest the repair is so easy when you follow every step on ifixit guides, i think anyone can manage to fix anything, it only took about 20-30 minutes to disassemble my iMac and put it back together and the main thing is that i did everything right from first go :)))
Just read every single step on the guide carefully and don't be in a rush with your repair, if your trying to fix it as fast as its possible you might break it faster than fix it :)

El power supply de mi Imac estaba dañándose porque no tenia un estabilizador de corriente , luego compre uno pero el daño ya estaba hecho solo era cuestión de tiempo para que deje de funcionar , y bueno de un momento a otro no dio más . Así qué me contacte con el equipo de Ifixit y ordene el remplazo del power supply , y cuando llego me puse a hacer la instalación.
Tuve qué seguir las instrucciones del video de Ifixit para hacer la instalación. Pero al final todo quedo en orden y quedo como nueva
Tengan cuidado cuando van a desconectar el LCD , porque Ahy cuatro cables que desconectar, o al menos ese fue mi caso.

Came downstairs one day to find my computer off. Strange comsidering I always leave it on. Pressung the power button yeilded nothing. No fans, beeps or anything to suggest power. I got on the web and found this site. After reading many comments I came to the conclusion I may have a faulty power supply.
I ordered the part and it arrived quickly. I used the guide on the site to replace the old power supply only to find out it was not the trouble maker. While my mac was opened I checked my LED status lights (something I would reccomend doing first next time) to discover I was getting 1 LED while plugged in but, pressing the power button made no progress nor did it light any other LEDs. After posting a question about my dilemma I was quickly answered by one of the fine people on this site. Our agreed opinions matched that I must have a bad logic board. Booooooo. I have a feeling it may have been caused by using a third party usb hub something I have now found to be a major problem with iMacs. If only I had known! Although my story ended badly I still will continue to use ifixit for all my needs because they did a fantastic job of helping me every step of the way. Thanks for trying guys! Wish me luck on finding the cheapest solution to my logic board issues and thanks again for the recommendation of ebay logic board repair businesses!
Always buy extended warranties for anything that costs a crap ton of money!

Woke up on my birthday and the Mac wouldn't power on when I hit the space bar. Bit of troubleshooting and figured it was P/S.
Repair was easy of you prepare and follow the guides found here. Even for the novice, with some attention to detail and logic :)
Read, watch, prepare and do!

After a complete shut-down of the computer when I moved it, it just wouldn't start, no matter how many and long pushes on the start button.
Inspired of my last repair (attempt) when filling our MacBook Air with coffee, I Goggled my problem and found the solution on your site. On iFixit I just followed the instruction on how to open the iMac and disconnected the Power Supply board. Since I live in Sweden delivery of the item would take a few days. For some reasons I did not order the part but the computer sat disassembled a few days. I made an new attempt to start it up - and it did without problem. It had fixed itself somehow.
However the same thing happened after another complete shut-down a couple of weeks later. So now a quick order of the Power supply and FedEx delivery three days later, and maximum of ten minutes work changing the board did the job!
Lets hope now it will continue running!
Thank you iFixit!
For anyone that in normally handy - Don't de afraid to try your own repair, it is actually quite fun to do your own repair and feels good afterwards!
And saves a lot of money too.

Was that i add to usb ports of my imac a cheap usb hub and that was the reason of destroying completely the power supply. Totally dead.
The repair was very easy , went very well.n
In order to buy from ifixit.com remember if you are in europe countries you get 18% tax paid so in total i paid almost 160€ !!! But still it was cheaper than other websites srom europe.
