My Problem

All of a sudden our frequently used iMac quit turning on. After a bit of trouble shooting, our best diagnosis was that the power supply stopped working. We knew what to do..

My Fix

Received a new power supply from IFIXIT only a few days later. Pulled up a follow along video on youtube produced by the IFIXIT team. She made it look easy and indeed it was pretty easy. Once installed we plugged it in, crossed our fingers and the iMac powered right up!

My Advice

Try to figure out the problem from yourself or co-workers or friends before taking it in somewhere. Most of the time you will save a lot of time and money

My Problem

There's was a buzzing noise behind the screen. After reading a lot I found out it was the PSU

My Fix

Easy to change. Take out the screen.Then unscrew the PSU. Replace. close.turn on.

My Advice

Watch out the flexible cable that goes to the screen... the connector to the motherboard is really delicate (already broke one).

My Problem

thought i had a bad power supply because iMac had a problem turning on

My Fix

the repair went well 1 hour start to finish. wish i would have read a few more forums turned out it is the button after all according to apple my entire housing needs to be replaced in order to fix this. but i read a forum and as stupid as it sounds pick iMac up turn it upside down then touch the power button and it turns on no problem ugggghhh

My Advice

read forums. bottom line although the parts worked and the install went well. i really didn't need a power supply after all and i don't want to take my iMac apart again to send it back if they would take it back in the first place

My Problem

My iMac 27" I7 fully loaded audio production tool suddenly died. It would not power up at all and I could hold the power button down and nothing happened. I tried different outlets and power cables just in case. After a few moments of panic started to look online and do some research. I found out that my iMac was a 2011 model that was known to have power issues and a trickling effect of multiple components failing one after the other. I was really worried at that point, and thought it would have to be replaced. I bought it used, and it did not have apple care. I am an experienced computer technician but have rarely ever had to repair any of my Macs, so this was a little troublesome. I found the Ifixit site and began to read up on the failure. I felt it had to be a power issue since nothing happens when you pressed the power button and I found the parts and instructions for replacing the power supply inside the iMac. I ordered the parts and tools and crossed my fingers.

My Fix

The instructions were spot on and fabulous! I had the old power supply out in about 20 minutes and that included reading and rereading the instructions multiple times to be sure I was doing the correct steps. I compared the power supplies once I got the old one out and was a little concerned because they didn't match correctly other than the shape. Coming from a PC world, not having matching parts can cause imminent doom when you power up. But after putting it all back together again, plugging it in, and then crossing my fingers... I pressed the power button. That wonderful familiar sound of the drives spinning up and apple boot noise sounded like music to my ears. It is alive again and kicking.

My Advice

My advice is.... if your iMac won't power up and you don't have any warranty available to have apple fix it, give this a shot. The videos are simple and straight forward, the instructions on pdf are the same, and the parts just work.

My Problem

We run a small IT company in Anchorage, Alaska and are also a sponsor/presenter/exhibitor of an upcoming conference. Our 27" iMac is to be used as part of our booth for displaying some of our promotional videos, etc. One problem: it wouldn't boot up. Not a bong, beep, or whir.

Although much of our business deals with managing Windows-based networks, we've worked with Mac's before, too. From experience, the best place to start in the teardown of any clean-frame, sealed device is the Internet. I'm so glad I found IFIXIT in my search!

My Fix

Using the IFIXIT guide, in less than 20 minutes we had the display out of this case and could look for the cause of its failure to start. All in all, the iMac looked pretty good inside with all circuit boards showing no sign of problems--except one: the power supply. It showed a "ghosting", almost a light dusting or frosting of a light discoloration on the PCB that faced us. I was pretty sure we nailed it as the problem, given the lack of any sign of life when attempting to power up and that none of the other PCB's showed anything like this discoloration.

When we tore into the iMac, we were 10 days away from the start of the conference, so we looked locally in Anchorage for a power supply. The closest we could get was a quote for considerably higher (almost double) what I'd seen w IFIXit. So we took a chance w IFIXIT to order the part and get it here on time.

Our order went in last Monday and by Wednesday we had the power supply in hand. Another 30 minutes and we had the system put back together and booting up!

I'm sorry I don't have any pictures, yet I'm not sorry about the results. We received this power supply at an excellent price and within 2 days of order--and our ability to use this system at the conference won't be hindered in the least. Thank you, IFIXIT!

My Advice

The one area where I approached this dis-assembly different was the order in which the old power supply was removed (and put back in). Attempting to remove the connector before removing the 4 screws was futile.

I disconnected the AC power clip first, then removed the 4 screws (putting them in 3 different containers w labels), and then was able to unclip and separate the connector from the board.

My Problem

Computer completely dead as in no visible signs of life.

My Fix

Replaced the power supply. Followed the instructions in the repair guide to the T. If "to the T" means mostly. Took about an hour and 2 Coronas.

My Advice

It gets easier after the second Corona.

My Problem

The Macbook Pro was working really slow. My first thought was a failing harddrive, so i took it out, at did a test, no error. Then i thought it might be that ribbon cable. Since i live far away, i wanted to order from ifkxit because of my previous success with them. It took only 6 days to receive the package ( which is pretty impressive by the way), and everything was of course in order :)

My Fix

I replaced the part, and everything is working properly. The customer has paid, and we both are happy with the fix

My Advice

If these Macbook Pro's are working really slowly, pay close attention to that ribbon cable. I have expeienced it quite often that the issue is with the cable and not the harddrive it self.

My Problem

My iMAC was making a very loud buzzing sound that got louder as I increased the brightness on the screen. Initially I thought that it was a fan or the hard disk. After some research I discovered that the problem was the power supply

My Fix

I reviewed the repair guide from iFix it. Ordered a new power supply. It arrived promptly and following the guide I was able to do the repair in a few minutes. My computer is back to being very quiet.

My Advice

Have a flash light handy as removing the cables from the monitor can be a bit tricky and hard to see.

Really great experience using the tools and spare parts from iFixit

My Problem

I hear a sound behind the screen. A powerful sizzling ... I know that noise is the sound of a dead power supply.

My Fix

I followed step by step the tutorial with the right tools. And I did not encounter any major problems.

My Advice

Oh yes ... Do this in a very very clean place, with clean hands and a vacuum dust cleaner. It's not worth paying hundreds of dollars in an Apple Store, if you are not too stupid, all will be fine

My Problem

The problem was I listened to my computer experts in the repair business. Approximately 3 months after my warranty on IMAX ran out my computer completely shut down. Being most computer illiterate and needing it for my business I immediately took my IMAX into the computer experts, a high profile computer business in my neck of the woods. Upon their detailed (?) investigation I was told it was my hard drive and possibly my power supply and to fix it would NOT be worth it. However they would be more than happy to sell me a new one and would do me a favour of disposing of my IMAX for me. Something bother me about their unprofessional approach. I bought another computer (not an IMAX and not from them) and I took my IMAX home placed it on my desk and swore I would look at it when I had time. How hard can this be? That was March 2013!

I have just found time to look at this IMAX and my research led me to iFixit….after viewing their site I order a new power supply and upgraded hard drive….covering all the bases!

My Fix

I had been told how difficult it was to repair a flat screen IMAX by the computer repair shop. Their advise was so self serving. Installing A NEW HARD DRIVE AND POWER SUPPLY WAS SO SIMPLE, it also returned to me my IMAX at a more than reasonable cost. I took the original hard drive to another shop and determined that there was nothing wrong with my hard drive…it now is a 1T external hard drive to my IMAX giving me 3T of memory. My enthusiasm has also led me to install an additional 8 meg. of RAM….even easier to do.

My Advice

If going to a computer shop make sure the computer shop has a technician that actually knows something about apple products. So many have experienced PCs and think they are MAX experts as well. NOT! ...iFixit made my repairs a piece of cake and at a very reasonable cost. If I can do it anybody can!
