My Problem

One day I've turned on my iMac 21.5'' iMac and worked one it for about 30 minutes, then i went for a quick meal to my kitchen :) after i got back I've noticed that iMac is off, I've tried to turn it on but there was no signs of life whats so ever, straight away i went on to ifixit.com forums throe my laptop and searched what could be causing that and i found few ways how to test it, so i took it apart and ind out that its 99% that this is the power supply fault.

My Fix

To be honest the repair is so easy when you follow every step on ifixit guides, i think anyone can manage to fix anything, it only took about 20-30 minutes to disassemble my iMac and put it back together and the main thing is that i did everything right from first go :)))

My Advice

Just read every single step on the guide carefully and don't be in a rush with your repair, if your trying to fix it as fast as its possible you might break it faster than fix it :)
