iMac G5 1058 power switch on logic board

Recommended Posts



This iMac had two power problems:


1) the power button on the back plate gone

2) the power switch on the logic board de soldered.


I isolated the power button with insulated tape, re-soldered the switch and then soldered two wires from the brass pods (see pictures) and routed outside the case through the vented grille.


Now I can power the iMac by shorting the two wires.


This is a temporary solution because this iMac has also some random and rare video artifacts that are sign if a dying GPU.


Nice experiment though.
