1/4 inch Audio Output broken on 2.16GHz iMac
The "possibly Related Question" is not my problem. Due to much use since new, the Audio Output female connector on my iMac24 has finally refused my desires to transmit just this one last time before fixing. The audio out signal is still slightly, but only occasionally there, but the male connector from my recorder simply won't carry the iMac's AUDIO OUTPUT signal. And, I know the problem is right inside the iMac's back cover. What I need to know is: What comes off first, and last, so I can repair the board/connections/female jack to put me back into my one-armed (no laughs) repair job. I have many years of electronic (not just electrical) training so I know I don't want to break my original iMac 24 due to ignorance. It feels like a connection has broken loose from a trace as I can still get a lousy output signal if I hold things just right. Thanks for helping me get this thing opened so I can get to the break. Take a break; thanks!
Is this a good question?
