View Full Version : iMac G5 Logic Board Replacement

Mar 3, 2008, 04:12 PM

My 17 inch iMac G5 1.8ghz seems to have died. For a while it's been refusing to power up and then powering up randomly but now it wont power up at all.

I've looked on the logic board and reset the SMU etc but I can only get the first LED to light up. I think this means the logic board has died.

Is it worth replacing the logic board and can it be done easily myself? Or should I just bite the bullet and pay out for a new alu intel iMac?

I'm in the UK btw, any ideas on logic board prices?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Logic Board will probably run you about 600EU. I would go with a new imac, those G5 ones stunk. Youll have more problems. I promise
