iMac A1225 Power Supply Repair

December 17, 2012 by Christopher Silvertooth

If you don’t already know about this site then I will enlighten you.  If you are ever in need of a DIY on how to repair a computer or other device iFixIt is the place to go.  I usually only head to iFixIt to check out their tear downs of brand new Apple devices, which they always seem to have within days of a new release, but this time round I actually needed to fix something.  For months our iMac had been having random power issues until finally it gave up the ghost.  Rather than plunk down $2k for a new one, though I really do want a new iMac because they are ridiculously sexy and my ex-windows loving brother-in-law just ordered the 27″ totally juiced —  hmmm tangent, jealousy, and rambling all in one, I figured I should actually try and save some coin and fix the old one.  Suffice to say the new power supply I ordered worked like a champ and only set me back $180 after next day delivery plus suction cups.  Here is a link to my write up on it.

      I actually don’t have the iMac anymore as the graphics card decided to go on it a few months ago. What sort of issues are you having?
