Any known recent repair guides for iMac G4 1.25ghz 17"?

History

Hello All,

I am just about to do a RAM and Hard Drive upgrade on my iMac G4 1.25ghz 17" and am wondering if anyone has information on available repair guides. I see that an iFixit guide for that model is still in progress (fantastic!). the only guide that I could find is this one:

http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/systems/iMac_...

Also, as I do the upgrade, I'd be happy to supply information and photos to iFixit, if that would be a help.

Thanks,

Randy

That's an excellent guide. I did a quick check of ifixit's guides page and it appears you have a clear field to create a guide for this machine. Check the how to page and good luck. + for the attempt.

mayer,

Thanks for the help! I will check with you as I progress. Randy

randy3833,

Thanks for the link on the "how to write a repair guide" information. I'll get set up for the photos and begin the work sometime early this week. I would like to go for writing the guide, using the accepted format. Looking forward to it. Randy

randy3833,

I finished my first guide for this machine tonight. Would someone mind taking a look at it and give me a critique? I have others to follow. My guide has at least one inadvertent photographic omission that I've noticed, but I think the text is clear enough to do without it. I'd love your feedback. Especially since this is my first attempt. Randy

I've got the official technical repair guide "iMac_flatpanel_usb_2.0" for this device as a .pdf file.

I can send it to you (5.3 Mb) if you provide me with your email address.
