Why's my iMac won't turn on?
I have this old iMac (A1224, 20”) which looks very good but there’s no sign of life from it.
I disassembled it and connect the cord to it and - #1 diagnostic LED is turned on, that’s it, nothing else.
Of course I tried to turn it on but the only sign I watched is the fan (left on) moving a bit when I click on the power button - but that’s it (I can add a video of it - it barely moving).
So the power button is okay, but I’m not sure what is causing the problem - it can be the power supply or the logic board? or something else?
I want to give it back to life - but I’m not sure what can I do with it right now and if it’s even worth it….
As I saw in here: A1224
Mine probably has the E8135 CPU (on the bottom there's sticker says 2.66) - which should to be the best option available to my system, is that correct?
And according to the website above - mine is also a iMac 9,1 model - So if everything will work after the PSU replacing - I will be able to make the rest of the upgrades (SSD, RAM and OS) in order to bring it back to life! :)
Dan, you're great!
I will update when I'll get the part I need - Thank you very much!
Same issue after replacing to a new PSU
I finally got the PSU and it looks good, but after I connect it inside with all the cables, it turn on the #1 LED but the issue remain the same, so the fan is barely moving one time only when I click on the power button.
I assume that my original PSU is just fine but I’m wondering if my problem is larger than what originally thought and if it’s worth fixing it.
I’ll glad to hear any help. Thanks!
Es esta una buena pregunta?
