complete teardown for iMac. Need to remove the stand.
One of my users had shelves installed above her desk and they crashed on top of the iMac (almost killing her, but she is OK). Although the machine turns on and functions, the stand is damaged and the screen is permanently tilted. It is supposed to be 90 degrees from the base but now it is at 30 degrees. I need a complete teardown of the machine to get to the stand and fix that. I was able to figure out most of it, but I'm stuck when I get to where the stand is attached. I wish I could attach a photo of where I'm stuck on here, but alas.... I can not.
Anybody know how to disassemble the stand of an iMac?
I uploaded some photos of the stand mechanism. I think one of the nubs (not really sure what to call it) has been forced below the arm that allows the stand to tilt. The nub bent the mechanism completely out of shape and is holding it down.
Is this a good question?
