Step Lines

[* black] Rotate the display out of the outer case enough to disconnect the LED backlight power cable from the LED driver board.
[* green] New suggestion: If just replacing the hard drive, you may be able to skip this step and the next two steps if you just move and rotate the display enough to access the two screws holding in the hard drive - on some machines, at least, the cables are long enough that only the first of the 4 cables needs to be detached.
[* icon_note] Disconnect the LED backlight power cable by depressing the locking mechanism while pulling the connector away from its socket (toward the bottom edge of the iMac).
