New LCD Screen not working despite LVDS swap - EMC 2638
I wonder if anyone can help. I received an iMac (EMC 2638) from a friend as the screen was damaged. I replaced the HDD with an SSD and also the RAM. I ordered a LCD screen which although working, had some issues with bleed, so I returned for a replacement. However, with two new replacements, the screen is not working, with nor LED 4 lighting up on the logic board. I have tried the following:
- Replaced the LVDS cable
- Checked that an external monitor works (it does)
- Tried two different LCD screens
Looking at the logic board, it appear that the 12v LCD fuse has burnt out like other posts I have come across. So now I am stuck as to what to do. Could it be the fuse has blown and I just can’t see it? The iMac wasn’t touched between the LCD being replaced which is all the more frustrating!
Attached is a photo of the logic board in case something jumps out.
Any advice greatly appreciated!
Just to add, I have now checked the under-side of the logic board and it does not appear that any components have blown, unless this is something you would not see.
Is this a good question?
