iMac Core i7 3.4 27-Inch (Mid-2011) EMC 2429 Gets No Power
iMac "Core i7" 3.4 27-Inch (Mid-2011) EMC 2429
My iMac "Core i7" 3.4 27-Inch (Mid-2011) is unresponsive. I've opened it up to find only the first diagnostic LED lit. The other three are off.
Before I buy the power supply and replace, I am trying to think this through. Prior to the computer not booting at all, I have on at least three occasions in the past, had trouble getting it to power on. Previously I pulled the power cord, talked sweetly to it, plugged back in, sometimes into a different outlet, and it has eventually come back on. This time it's dead.
My question is this. Is it possible the problem is in the switch itself? The power supply has no visible signs of damage, and considering the previous problems leading up to now, I'm wondering if the switch was going bad. Or is the power supply still more likely?
Edited to add another note:
I also managed to damage the clip on the sync cable to the LCD when removing it. How big a problem is that? Wondering if I can rig it back somehow.
Is this a good question?
