Hi all, long time lurker here. Well, my G5, after two mobo replacements (years ago--under warranty) due to the bad caps, finally had the power supply go the other day. After removing the PS I can see the telltale bulge in a couple of caps inside. I'm ready to move on, but set on trying my best to salvage what I can, especially the display. (I'm thinking of getting a 13" MBP.) I know I know, extensive google searches all reveal that "you can't do it" (or that VNC is the only way--no thanks) but I finally stumbled across something interesting--a PDF file that outlines exactly how to do it, with success (albeit with a 17", mine's 20"). I have renewed hope that this can be done, and I'm willing to put some time and effort into it. (Yes I'm fully aware that said time and effort will not necessarily make the most economic sense when new 20" monitors are $150 or whatever--call it sentimental attachment, as well as "wouldn't it be so cool...", also my sister is an electronics whiz and wants to give it a go.) Back to the task: it looks like a simple operation to locate the cables out from the LCD, patch to DVI and power (yes I know my blown PS is a disadvantage -- I think). Does anyone here have any experience with this? (I searched but the search term "g5" is ignored, thus it's difficult to narrow down results.) Here's the PDF file I mentioned - http://users.skynet.be/fa835376/pas a pas.pdf And yes it's in french. I actually know french and also google translated it and pieced it together again: http://www.circlerranch.ca/skishop/other/g5_monitor_trans.pdf BTW, in the translation, "food" and "diet" refer to the power supply unit! (From french "alimentation".) Funny stuff And I've attached an image (cause everybody likes pics) of my G5 guts. Thanks in advance for any thoughts...!
