    iMac G3 Headphone Board Pinout/Removal?

    I used the iMac Service Source, searching for information on this and I followed these instructions: 1: ✓ (I don't use any) 2: ✓ (Isn't this supposed to restart the iMac though?) 3; ✓ 4: ✓ 5: ✓ 6: Partial sound on left ear, only on first HEADPHONE jack on front, but not speakers or speaker jack (Yes?) 7: Can't 8: BACK HERE AGAIN!!!!
  2. I can't find any pinouts of the iMac G3's Headphone board (next to the left speaker). I have no speaker output, and I assume that the board may be the problem, looking at older Apple Support Forum posts. Looking at this pinout (for the G5) I assume the pinout may be the same because of the connector shape: (origin: tonymacx86 - found via google images) As far as I know I either need to short Sense and GND or leave 10 floating. My problem is, I don't know how to correctly remove the header from the Headphone board. Any help? Just pulling on it or pushing in one direction and pulling out doesn't help (and makes me feel like i'm going to break the connector ), but that may just be because I don't have enough room to grip on it using a screwdriver OR my hands.
