Originally known as "The New iMac" the iMac G4 was created to replace the iMac G3 as Apple's all-in-one desktop computer. The G4 is easily recognizable by its swiveling monitor mounted above the hemispherical computer. Steve Jobs quoted it as being "a design that will last till the next decade."

The TMDS CABLE IS THE Monitor Cable. You wont have any video if this cable is unplugged from the Logic Board.

If the chip that connects the TMDS cable to the Logic Board is still attached to the TMDS Cable, then this means it has broken off of the Logic Board during dis-assembly. You will need to buy a new Logic Board. They range from 15-50 dollars depending on where you purchase.

Good Luck
