Display Power Cable orientation
Mid 2011 iMac 27"
When installing an SSD drive, I put too much strain on the Display Power cable socket.
The pins appear undamaged, but I am not sure if the grooves in the socket and small lugs on the plug are still intact and therefore, I could possibly insert the plug either way.
To identify the correct orientation of the plug, I see that a small section of the brass connectors is visible through the plastic on only one side.
I see that these are on the outside (away from the circuit board) on the display end of the cable,
Is it the same on the logic board, i.e. insert the plug with these nearest to you, i.e. away from the logic board?
Any help greatly appreciated
Thanks for interest in my problem.
As I reported, the cable does not lie flat to the plane of the rear of the display, but almost convinces me that my preference for visible brass on one side of plug should be outermost.
Here is my plug and I hope the tiny brass parts of the connectors show up.
