    Did you fix it or what does you last line indicate?

    Have you taken a look at and its many guides?

    What specific iMac model do you have, as there are two different ones at least. The white Intel one and the Aluminium one.

    Even though some might get annoyed of reading this, the thread title guy strikes again:

    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses.
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    Have you also taken a look at http://mroogle.*************/MRoogleSmall.gif, since that question may have been asked several times?

    from the forum rules:Minor Problems
    3. Thread titles.

    Use thread titles that indicate the subject of the thread, not generic titles such as "Need advice/help". Moderators may change thread titles that have no specifics, usually by adding something more specific in parentheses.[/COLOR]

    Hi! thanks! basically, i haven't got it yet, and i have no reference as i hadn't expected to have the cables come unplugged, my second set of hands dropped the screen while i was removing the hard drive(for replacement) and so im left with the lcd power cables being disconnected and having no idea what plugs into what as both sets are identical with black dots on each set i get the which way is up but not which plugs into which ....

    it is a aluminum 2007 imac duo all24

    thanks again,

    i did look at ifixit, and they don't indicate lcd wiring or which plugs into which
