My Problem

My 24" iMac 2.16 GHZ (late 2006) was experiencing power problems. It would take two or three presses of the power button to start up. Then one day it wouldn't boot up at all.

My Fix

The directions were first rate. I replaced the power supply in just under an hour. This repair saved me the $1500 I was going to spend to get a new Mac.

My Advice

When you re-install the display, make sure the cables for the iSight camera and microphone are sticking out so they don't get stuck under the display. Also, you need a T6 Torx wrench for this job, which is not listed in the "required tools"section.

My Problem

My iMac went dark and I didn't want to give a repair service access to my hard drive which has personal information. I trust no one with my computer. So what a relief to find ifixit! I was encouraged by the detailed instruction on how to replace the power supply so I ordered one and took a chance. Replacing my iMac was just too expensive.

My Fix

No problems at all thanks to the great instructions on ifixit. I bought a Husky 8 in 1 Torx Screwdriver Set from the hardware store and ordered the power supply from ifixit. I ordered it on Wednesday and got it by Saturday. Really pleased with that.

My Advice

The only challenge was removing the torx screws from the display because they are recessed. I used a small needle nose pliers to remove the loose screws and I used rubber cement to hold the screw to the blade when reinserting the display.

My Problem

Power supply went out on my 24 inch iMac (again!).

My Fix

The repair information was spot on. The only problem was that I just bought the tools that were suggested after choosing my part. I didn't look through the instructions and so I was missing a T6 Torx driver and had to stop and go buy one. Other than that it was a straight forward fix.

My Advice

Make sure you have all the tools before you start!

My Problem

Power supply in iMac died and needed to be replaced.

My Fix

Very smooth. Also saved some money because the part was cheaper being sourced from the US than Australia.

My Advice

The only issue I had was identifying the Apple Part number as opposed to the Manufacture Part number as identified on the power supply. For future users, the part is know by the same number (interchangeable).

Manufacturer Part Number Power Supply 614-0387

Apple Part Number 661-4183

My Problem

Over recent months the iMac had started doing odd things. Strange screen effects, freezing, not always booting first go. It finally died altogether. A quick look at iFixit and it was apparent the power supply had failed. Parts ordered and wait. Arrived yesterday afternoon.

My Fix

I followed the instructions on iFixit. No drama whatsoever. Power up and "boingggg" iMac is back to life. Screen seems brighter too.

My Advice

I didn't have the recommended long stemmed Torx driver on hand for the 8 display screws. I was able to bend the sides of the white plastic case out far enough to enable the use of the iFixit Torx driver.

My Problem

Nothing happened when the power button was pushed. I have seen this before and knew it was a failed Power Supply.

My Fix

Repair went well using the ifixit guide for the replacement of the power supply. Pushed the power button and voila!

My Advice

I have an ifixit tool kit which is tops. The screwdriver head is a little broad for getting in to remove the LCD retaining screws. Fortunately the imac plastic case has enough flex to widen the space with a wedge to allow the driver access to the screws. Don't be shy about wedging it unless you are sumo prone it won't break.

My Problem

in Mid-August the 2006 iMac won’t start after it shut down, no noise, no light, zero response.

My Fix

the hardest thing is wait for the backorder, it took me a 3 months wait, something like waiting for a transplant. I replaced the hard drive before, so the repair part is nothing new to me, take about 30 to 40 minutes to complete the process

My Advice

Follow the step by step pictures from this site, no rushing, put on some music for your soul probably help.

My Problem

The power supply died on my iMac. I mentioned to my son that if he helped to fix it, I would give him the computer. (I had already purchased its replacement for my business.) He quickly agreed after looking at the instructions on iFixit.com.

My Fix

It took the two of us less than half an hour to make the repair. We were both shocked at how easy and quickly the repair went. Both of thought that we had to have missed a vital step. But, the computer is running just like new again.

My Advice

Our only advise is to read the instructions before you begin. Then read the instructions again. We made ourselves very familiar with inside of our computer before opening it up by looking at the photos and reading the instructions.

My Problem

The PSU on out 24" iMac was failing and would only power on once every 30 or 40 tries. The problem was getting steadily worse as time went on.

My Fix

I ordered a replacement supply from iFixit which arrived in the mail 2 days later. Spent 15 minutes start to finish replacing the PSU and now we are back in business! I have replaced these several times before on other 24" iMacs so the I've had plenty of practice with this particular surgery thus the 15 minute repair time.

My Advice

If your iMac PSU is starting to fail, don't wait, order the replacement supply today and be done with the problem.

My Problem

Stopped working after being shut down ; read lots of Ifixit howto's and took the bezel off . No leds lighting up at all , so I ordered a new power supply . Disassembled the machine .

My Fix

Power supply 6 Days to Australia ( bewdy mate ) ; whacked in the new power supply ; reassembled the machine ; reseated the ram ; switched it on , and awayyyyy we go . New machine .

My Advice

Have a look at the ifixit howto's and trust yourself to follow the advisories . Get someone to hold the screen and bezel when you are reconnecting the camera and microphone leads at the top of the machine , otherwise it is a very awkward balancing act .

Thank you ifixit .
