Where can I get iMac power supplies rebuilt?

I know where to get the kits for rebuilding G5 iMac power supplies but I have about five or six burned units and I would rather just send them off and get a group price on repairing them. It would be nice to just have them in stock. Has anyone had any experience with having these rebuilt with new capacitors?

I've ordered from these folks a couple of times now and have collected nine supplies to send in, four for rebuilding and the rest for trade in for $25 credit each. Shipping was priority and free to get the units.

Checked the site shown above. Re repairs: it now states "We no longer sell or repair power supplies."

I have rebuilt power supplies for a powermac g4 or two, but the iMac power supplies are smaller, and much simpler, so you could do a pretty easy repair by yourself, i would try it, if i had an iMac G5, but i have heard too many bad things about the iMac G5's for me to want to buy and fix one.

When you show people the blown up cans on a G5 people they will trade you the machine for the diagnostic fee. But I have always just replaced the power supplies. Average cost of about $109.00

@technocreative what does that have to do with the question or answer on here?

I have rebuilt 4 iMac G5 power supplies, and it is not too hard to replace the capacitors. The most challenging is just clearing the holes of solder.

$60 seems very reasonable for the repair of a power supply.

I now have a 1.8GHz iMac G5 that is showing instabilities (on a rebuilt supply) and while the mother-board capacitors look fine, they seem to run too hot and I will replace those. My other 3 G5 iMacs (1.6GHz) are doing fine and their motherboard capacitors seems to run a lot cooler.

All 4 rebuilt power supplies are doing fine.
