I was watching a uTube video when the screen instantly went black, with no fan or hard drive noise. The iMac would not power on. By the symptoms of the failure, I guessed that the power supply had failed.
First of all, I ordered the replacement power supply online from iFixit.com on Monday afternoon and it was delivered by 9:30am on Wednesday morning--amazing. Although I couldn't find a guide to replace the Power Supply in a EMC 2390, the guide for the EMC 2309 worked just fine. I took my time and carefully followed the 10 page downloaded guide. It took about 3 hours including setting up a work bench in a warm place, collecting my tools, and a 1 hour lunch break. My original power supply did not show any visible signs of failure, but when I reassembled the iMac it worked perfectly with the replacement power supply. My guess at power supply failure was correct. Now that I have been through the process once, I could repeat it in 20 to 30 minutes--it's easy. The suction cups worked great to remove the glass over the LED screen. The glass is held on with magnets.
As a retired EE that is accustomed to working with very high reliability electronics (spacecraft), I would like to stress the use of anti-static wrist straps any time you work with electronics that have semiconductors. Electrostatic discharge can wipe out ICs and you may never know it until things don't work. Just clip the wrist strap to the aluminum chassis of the iMac.

Could not use CD/DVD-slot. AND... the SD-card.... ;-(
The repair went fine, using the iFixit-guide for replacing the DVD-drive.
Re-mounting the display-cable was the biggest chalenge. Why on earth do they use such a small and fragile connector at that place; plenty of space there!
The heavy-duty suction cups do not suc very good, because the hole in the piston for the axes of the lever is just a little too far from the suctionpad. I placed a 9mm washer over the piston under the lever and now it sucs! Well!

I had 4GB of RAM and a 120GB HD. Both were as received from Apple. For a couple of years I was running my boot drive from an external FW800 Raid Enclosure using RAID 1with 500GB capacity. The enclosure bit the dust recently so I was then running off my USB 2.0 clone drive that I keep updated. Every time I do any OS update I use SuperDuper to make an bootable clone of the boot drive. (btw I also use Time Machine for ongoing backup). I wanted higher performance but didn't want to buy a new computer so I decided to upgrade the drive with a WD Scorpio Black 750GB HD and while I was at it, upgrade the RAM with 8GB of Kingston RAM. (I also run Parallels so the extra RAM is a plus).
Following IFixit's guide for MacMini A1283 HD and RAM replacement and using the tools obtained from IFixit I dove in and did the replacement. I was nervous at first, but following the guides I gained more confidence as I went. All went perfectly. My 2009 vintage Mac Mini runs like a champ. It's like a new machine!
A tip I would give would be for the HD replacement. At step 13 I did the skip ahead to steps 18 & 19 then returned to step 15. I found removing the heat sensor from the drive was far less dangerous and easier than fiddling with the thermal sensor connector.
Also, before replacing the HD, I would suggest doing a fresh install of OS X on the new drive then let the OS migrate your data, boot and do a software update and boot again. That way you know you have a good bootable drive before you tear into the Mac Mini.

My DVD drive was busted. In order to use TurboTax, I had to upgrade to Snow Leopard or higher Mac OSX. In order to upgrade, I had to use a DVD. Therein was the problem.
It went very well! The instructions were clear and accurate. I am impressed with your site and will surely recommend it to others and use it again.
Leave space on printed instructions to allow taping screws to the page without obscuring or damaging the instructions or pictures.

My late 2009 iMac was completely dead. Any boot chime sound, any noise from fans.
The repair went fine. 15 minutes and the iMac screen was shining again.
I used my GPS suction cup for glass panel removing.
Be careful not touching the surface of the old PSU before removing it.

Fixed the touch screen, was unable to reconect camera cable, so camera doesn't work.
Fair, I had difficulty re-inserting various ribbons into their plastic clamps/ports,..
Purchase/ Use tweezers next time for reinserting cables! :)
