My Problem

Power supply went unserviceable after 5 years of usage.

My Fix

it definitely took an hour or so but the repair was slow, steady but smooth.

My Advice

Current guide was good enough however major improvements could have been made in the video where certain parts of "disconnecting cables /parts " of hardware made cleared instead of snapshots of pictures.

My Problem

My 20" iMac simply stopped working one evening recently while I was streaming music to my Apple TV. I did a little research and found there were diagnostic lights on the bottom. I saw light #1 (which indicates if the unit is getting power) was blinking and "guessed" the power supply had gone bad. I ordered a replacement from iFixit and it arrived 2 days later. I also ordered the suction cups after watching a repair tutorial on the website and finding I needed them to remove the screen.

My Fix

I followed the iFixit instructions to the letter and they were completely accurate. Impressive! The problem was diagnosed correctly and my iMac works great! Anyone can do this if you have just a little confidence and you follow the instructions.

My only problem with the process was removing a very tiny wire plugged into the power supply at the top (temperature sensor wire). This was so small and so tight (as the instructions indicated) that I could not remove it with my fingers. I tried using small needle nose pliers but the wire pulled out and the plug broke. I found a way to reattach the wire to the new power supply but it was not perfect.

My Advice

It's nice to have someone help hold the monitor while you unplug some of the wires. It's also helpful if you find a way to keep track of which screws go where so you can put them back easily.

I found the instructions stopped after the new power supply was in place and they did not guide me through the reassembly process. However, it was easy to simply go backwards through the photos and instructions to make sure I put everything back where it belonged. Also, as I indicated above, be careful trying to remove the temperature sensor wire. Other than that, nothing to it. Thanks iFixit for all the great advice and instructions.

My Problem

My desktop iMac suddenly does not turn on any more - I tried everything I can check from internet sources, from checking power cables to reseting power management, all unsuccessful. Thanks to an iFixit guide and comments, I checked the power supply unit inside iMac and appeared to be the problem, zero volts on the whole thing, and none of the diagnostic leds illuminated when connected to power.

My Fix

Extracting the old power source was not that hard, I had previous experience from replacing hard drives and broken screens from laptop macs, and this was far easier, the excellent walkthroughs found here were a must. There are some power supply replacements on eBay, but I decided to purchase the replacement on iFixit to be sure it works, the replacement were different from the one supposed to be compatible with mi particular model (imac intel 20`` 2/2.4 (EMC 2133) model A1224 late 2008), but thanks to pictures and other specs, I were able to determine that power supply for EMC 2210 was compatible and was the same model found inside my computer (as shown on first pic). When installed and before re-attachment of the screen, the first diagnostic led illuminated (pic 2), and after everything was reinstalled, my computer were like a new one, also I upgraded memory to 2x2Gb, yes this old model can handle 4 Gb and works very fast now!

My Advice

Repairing iMac was easier than expected, saves lots of money, and also avoided an excellent computer to go into trash, It was worth the money, even when customs from my country (Chile) make me to pay USD$86 of importing fees!!!

My Problem

My iMac started acting funky. At first it just did not want to start up after a power failure. Sometimes it would just sit there and a few hours later power on. Strange very strange. Finally, it simply refused to power up. No chimes, no fan noise, no nothing. Just a door stop. What could it be? I was guessing power supply.

My Fix

It was much easier than I feared. The step by step directions in iFix it were 99% correct. Only difference was the LCD had more wires coming off of it than the one on the iFix it page I reviewed. No problems though. Everything went back together like a dream. It started right up and has been chugging along without a hitch.

My Advice

Have a helper hold the LCD when you tip it away from the body. It is difficult to disconnect and reconnect the wires and hold the screen yourself. Also don't forget to clean the glass and LCD before you put it back together. It was really gross inside. Amazed at how much dirt had gotten in there over the years.

My Problem

We had a brownout and the iMac shut itself off. It wouldn't turn back on. I unplugged it from the wall for thirty seconds and it turned on and shut itself off again. It would not run longer than 5 minutes. So I ordered the power supply.

My Fix

The repair went smoothly. The only trouble I had with the disassembly was that I somehow got the idea the front bezel was two pieces and I tried to pull out what I thought was the inner piece. Fortunately, I didn't break anything.

After I put it all together, I was anxious to try it out. I hastily plugged in the cables, spun the computer around and pushed the power button.... nothing. Nada. Zip. Sinking feeling.

I plugged a lamp into the power strip to test it, the lamp was ok.

I imagined I would have to take it apart again, so I spun it back around and saw the power plug had come out from the back of the iMac. I plugged it in and pressed the button and felt a huge relief as the computer turned on and stayed on.

My Advice

1. Make sure the plug is firmly seated in the back of the iMac when you're ready to turn it on.

2. Follow the tip in the instructions: Pressing on the LCD with the thumbs is like magic for separating the one-piece bezel.

My Problem

20" iMac EMC 2210: Overheating power supply caused a slight discoloration of the LCD screen on the corner in front of the power supply. It was also causing intermittent short term cut off of power which caused problems with the Hard Drive, That was the reason it was brought in for service.

My Fix

Used the iFixit repair guide to replace the Power supply, pulled the drive and using an external dock from shop computer recovered data. The drive also had bad blocks. Installed new drive in computer and transferred all recovered data to new drive. Reassembled computer and tested, All OK.

My Advice

The iFixit repair guides are a great help to independent repair shops. After 28 years in the Navy, I Ran the repair shop for an Apple Dealer in Portland Maine for 18 years and I have been repairing Mac's since 1984. I am now retired but still working out my house in Bath Maine since 1998. As new models are introduced, I no longer have Apple resources for information and relay on other sources (iFixit for one) . The repaired Mac is gone now and I neglected to photograph it. I am 81 and live 40 miles from the nearest Apple store, but still enjoying working from home with old and new customers and tearing into the Mac's to find and solve problems.

My Problem

the iphone had a broken glass display was working.The imac mod a1224 emc nr 2210 stopped working for a friend in the music aranger and musican.powersuply was the problem i found out with help fom your informative site and videos.worked with electroniks for 30 years.

My Fix

The iphone 5s i have bougth a display from a site that usualy deliver topp parts for brands that alow 3 party selling parts for their products.Iphone displays is a diferent matter.The new display was not funtion properly.The broken work fine.So i contakted ifixit and got a real good servise.Orderd new display kit from them and few minutes later it worked like it should.i could feal the kvality in conektors hwen pressing them in plase the clikk sound and feal told me that conetors are good quality.One thing is the same with those to display kit . The pressure pads on top of the conektor are missing in this kit to.orginaly its a thin firm foam pad on the conetors to hold conector pressed down when you skrew the small metal bessel over.I made my own with bisykle tire punctering patch thath i used a sisser on the edge thath is thin like the pads.The girl who owns the iphone is i happy girl with a good replasement display.Best quality conetors yet.The imac a1224 emc nr 2210 change of power supply.i folowed the advise form ifixit and went for a powersupply that looks diferent.same conetors and form factor.so it fited rigth in.It is cooler than the other model like my orginal supply. anyway i drilled 10 .4,2mm hole where there was most heat.cleaned out the black paper/metalfoil ressidue and rounded the holes so they loked okei outside and innside.put it together now its cool under pressure.i have pictures of both rep and wil upload the best representative pictures.

My Advice

Advise.be sure that your new display have pressure pads on the connectors.ifikxit has the best conectors.

My Problem

Power supply burned out during electrical storm. Insurance declined to fix or replace as machine no longer supported by Apple. Insurance company paid me $250 which more than covered the cost of a replacement power supply from iFixit.

My Fix

No problems, easy-peasy, with instructions from iFixit lady on youtube. Thankyou!

Although she missed out a small few details on screw sizes.

My Advice

Have a great computer back in working order, and a new 1TB drive put in a year ago, almost like new and made a few $ on the deal. Also still running Snow Leopard, the best system ever produced by Apple, compared to the ugly industrial grey-scale of Jobs.

My Problem

I woke up one morning to find a dead iMac (2008 20" 2.66 ghz), and then noticed the house power had gone out during the night. I like the iMac, and it synchs with my iPhone, so I decided to repair it. Also, it had 13,000 family photos going back to 2003.

My Fix

The repair went smoothly, even with help from two cats. The repair guides were spot-on, and the replacement part was new, well packed, and arrived on time.

My Advice

I had backup copies of the photos, and everything else, on a hard drive using Time machine! Yeah! I never before had the luxury of a leisurely repair, knowing I had followed the boring advice to BACK UP BEFORE THE DISASTER.

My Problem

My wife has a 20" Intel iMac (EMC No. 2210) which had slowed to a crawl and eventually failed to boot. I have always had PC's and wasn't shy about swapping out hard drives and performing basic hardware repairs or upgrades. I wasn't eager to go out and spend a couple grand on another Apple computer so Google and I set about looking for instructions on how to trouble shoot and fix this machine.

My Fix

The iFixit videos and repair guide was awesome, as are the user forums here. After digging about the site, watching the videos and combing through the forum I made a plan. I decided that no matter the problem I would upgrade the hard drive from the 250 GB stock drive to 1TB and that I would swap out the PRAM battery at the same time. So, I ordered the drive, the recommended suction cups for removing the screen and the driver set. The tools are great quality and a good value.

Once they arrived I cleared the dining room table and set to work removing the screen - I have to admit the way those Apple guys figured out how to mount it using magnets is very cool - and disassembled enough so that I could easily view the LED's for trouble shooting. The first LED lit when I plugged the machine in, but all of the other lights remained dark. Based on the trouble shooting checklist I found here and on Apple's support site I narrowed the problem down to a bad power supply. I got back on the site, ordered the part, and told me wife that she would just have to deal with the partially disassembled computer on her dining room table until the power supply showed up.

Whiel I waited for the part I followed the repair guides to remove and replace both the PRAM battery and the hard drive. I recommend reading through these guides carefully because there are numerous little connections and there are some very good, spot on directions on how to best navigate the disassembly.

When the power supply arrived I just followed the guide, pulled the old one, dropped in the new one, put everything back togther except the screen so that I could see those LED's and then crossed my fingers as I pressed the power button. All four of those LED's lit up, the screen came to life and I knew that I was in business.

I wanted to do a clean install of the OS from the discs that came with my wife's computer. This is where I encountered a problem. It turns out that the optical drive had gone bad and would not accept the disc. My first thought was to order a new one, but my wife said she never used it. A bit more research and I learned that I could create a bootable media from pretty much any USB drive. So, I borrowed my daughter MacBook Air, downloaded a copy of Yosemite and figured out the couple UNIX commands to create a bootable rescue drive from a Seagate USB drive. It worked like a charm. I got Yosemite installed and updated the applications. The machine runs like new and has four times the drive space.

My Advice

I was very impressed with the design of this iMac. It is very well thought out and quite easy to repair. From what I have read the new iMacs are not so easily repaired, so if you own one of these slightly older machines I recommend upgrading and repair it rather than buying a new one.

That said, it is quite the production to disassemble the machine so I would also suggest that if you find yourself in need of replacing something you might as well take advantage of the fact that you've got the machine open to do some maintenance and maybe even an upgrade or two.

First off, buy yourself a can or two of compressed air. My wife's machine was filled with dust accumulated over years of use. Once I had the machine disassembled I took it out to the backyard and blew everything out. All of that dust probably had something to do with that powersupply going bad.

I would also suggest replacing the PRAM battery. You can pick one up at the drug store for a couple bucks. The problem is that when you remove the battery your computer will lose the date and time. This was a problem when I tried to install Yosemite. I had to get back on Google and figure out the Unix command. It was not difficult and now you know.

The hard drive upgrade was also a good idea. The drives are not very expensive. The one thought I had was possibly using an SSD, but the performance with a regular HDD is actually pretty good so I'll leave well enough alone.

Lastly, read through the repair guides a few times and watch the videos. Great help!
