简介

We picked up the new iMac 20" from our local Apple store on March 3rd.

这个拆解是不是维修指南。 要维修你的的iMac Intel 20" EMC 2266,请使用我们的服务手册

  1. It's here!
    • It's here!

    • We turned it on (only briefly, of course); the LCD display is beautifully clear, even though its resolution (1680x1050) is smaller than the 1920x1200 resolution found in the MacBook Pro 17" Unibody.

    • The speakers are also surprisingly loud and clear, given that the sound seemingly comes out of nowhere...

    • Feel free to comment on specific steps as we go. We'll do our best to accommodate any special requests for pictures.

  2. The ports:
    • The ports:

      • Optical digital audio out / in

      • Four USB 2.0 ports

      • FireWire 800, 7 watts

      • Gigabit Ethernet

      • Mini DisplayPort (with support for DVI, dual-link DVI, and VGA)

    Do you have any idea how many buses that these USB ports share? Also, what do you do with the machines you disassemble after you reassemble them?

    I wonder if it's possible to add/create an aftermarket frame for the display to cover the screws and leave the matte screen exposed like the new 17" MBP?

    One could make some dollars with such an idea.

    • Look at those lovely cords. Yay for cords. Going wireless will add an extra $50 to your iMac's pricetag -- $20 for the mouse and $30 for the keyboard.

    • Apple should really have an Aluminum mouse. The included white plastic Mighty Mouse looks like something thrown in as an afterthought.

    • Our keyboard has no number pad, but in their online store Apple offers a "keyboard with numeric keypad" as a no-cost alternative to the standard one.

    • Apple confirmed that nothing from the PC world was used in the creation of this iMac, as evident by the "Everything Mac" slogan.

    all these gadgets are really good, i have the lot... now with apple updates i have lost the use of my battery, and now my bluetooth... so not to be a killjoy - is all this required to change the memory? i am hoping it is a negative...

    • It has begun.

    • Unscrewing the single exterior screw -- the RAM cover. We brainstorm on what magical wonders may lie underneath...

    • Behold: RAM!

    • Unfortunately, this is the extent of Apple-approved user-serviceability for this iMac.

    Beware that this screw is attached to the accessport, it is very easy to damage the screwhead.

    Also, it is not necessary to remove this accessport, unless you want to replace the memory cards.

    • Fourteen magnets hold the front glass panel in place. Our suction cups were very handy for this operation.

    • The glass panel comes off with a gentle pull straight up.

    • The suction cups made removing the glass surprisingly painless. However, getting dust or fingerprints on either the glass or LCD is a concern. You must make sure both the LCD panel and glass are completely clean prior to reassembly.

    • The rear of the glass has a metallic bezel, as well as seven alignment posts. The magnets that help hold the glass in place are in the iMac's aluminum front bezel.

    I would love to see the underside of the glass panel. Did they just glue the magnets to the glass, I would assume needing to add and glue these magnets would make an extra step instead of just adding tape the glass.

    OK, I've got to ask: How did you figure out that you could pull the glass panel off like that? Is this a known construction technique, or did you get a hint from an insider?

    I wonder if the use of magnets was purely aesthetic or because they'd like to be able to swap in different screen covers: a less glossy / privacy filter, for instance.

    I'm a little confused. The glass on the front is held solely with magnets? Is that all that's preventing the glass from falling out? Seems like it would slide out accidentally at some point doesn't it?

    The glass on the front is held in place by magnets - no screws or adhesive. Of course the aluminum frame around the glass also supports the glass, and the gap tolerance between glass and frame is very small.

    It's not generally known, but it's not a huge secret either. There were no screws on the glass so that limited our options to either suction cups or a hammer :)

    Suction cups won the roshambo, so we used them instead of the hammer :)

    Earlier this year, while shipping my faulty new iMac back to Apple, UPS must have dropped the (original) box pretty violently. Due to a screw-up (one of many) the box came back to me and I could hear the glass pieces rattling about in the box.

    So, yes, it is possible for the glass to be dislodged. I suspect, though, that it would take some force - like dropping the iMac - to knock the glass off.

    • The display is less glossy now.

    • Twelve screws are exposed:

      • Eight 12.8 mm T8 Torx screws.

      • Four 24.6 mm T8 Torx screws.

    • The front bezel then simply rotates up. The microphone cable must be disconnected before the bezel is entirely free.

    Hey I wonder if you could show the underside of the front bezel. I would like to see how they attached the magnets and how they built the bezel?

    • Most components are buried beneath the LCD assembly. This isn't a new design for Intel iMacs, but is certainly not as convenient as the rear-accessible iMac G5.

    • Unscrewing the two T6 screws securing the display data cable.

    • After removing the two screws, we pulled the connector straight up, wiggling back and forth as necessary.

    I always wondered if you could utilize just the monitor of an iMac once the machine becomes obsolete. Maybe there is a way to connect to the LCD and plug it into a Mac mini?

    You can kinda-sorta do that if the computer still works using the prefpane teleport - it connects via VNC and relays all mousing and keypresses to the other computer. Save for network lag and and the fact that you cannot really move windows between the screen it works like a computer in extended desktop mode. Of course, it also means that the old computer has to run your apps - which has the benefit on the other hand that your main machine won't have to.

    • The LCD panel is held in place with eight 11.8mm T8 Torx screws.

    • The LCD in this iMac is not LED backlit, but uses the more traditional CCFL backlight.

    • There are five cables (four inverter cables and one temperature sensor) to disconnect before the LCD panel can be removed from the iMac.

    • This display is an AU Optronics M302EW02. The manufacture date shown on the back of the LCD is 09/04, that's probably the 4th week of 2009.

    I suppose, 09/04 means "4th week of 2009", that's more likely.

    Dude, not to ruin your game,but it think is is made in the fourth month of 2004. These things are planned for the later generation computers along time before before it comes out for consumer sale. In this case it took Apple 4-5 years to remove the iMac to the masses.

    "The LCD panel is held in place with eight 11.8mm T9 Torx screws."

    The 2006 model iMac LCDs were held in place with T10 Torx screws. Every model since then has had T8 Torx screws holding the LCD.

    Is your T9 Torx driver very well worn, or was that entry really just a typo?

    • Removing the desktop 320GB SATA hard drive.

    • After disconnecting the temperature sensor cables, we rotated the long black clip toward the drive to unlock it, then swung it to the side.

    • We then unplugged the SATA cables and pulled out the hard drive without removing any additional screws.

    • This screw-less design for the hard drive is nice, but unfortunately getting to this point requires removing 21 screws.

    Boy that is smart engineering... I wonder how important it really is to make the iMac so narrow. The area behind the screens is wasted space anyway. This computer is not a laptop or an iPhone. This is a dealbreaker for me.

    Slightly off topic, but I'd love to see an AppleTV guide (hardware AND software) from you guys. I bought a 40gb apple tv about a year ago figuring I could just buy a new hard drive and install it myself. Then I started researching and found out that a. it was a PATA drive and b. required unix command line hacking to do the job. I'm sure your team could put together an easy to follow guide for it.

    Now - I need to turn off my late 2008 MBP to replace the hard drive using your guide again - I'm going to a 500gb that I just bought to replace the 320 I put in there about 7 or 8 months ago... Great guides guys...

    I have the same problem i actually had a CD stuck inside my Imac early 2008 as well and brought it to the genius bar paid $85 dollar for them to take the drive apart and remove the CD from the drive. Now the control arm is stuck in the down position. The drive is constantly trying to read a CD that isn't there and is just making noise all the time. I really need to find out how to purchase a new one. Thanks to the new tear down pics i can do it myself instead of being without a computer for a week and paying $85.

    Has anyone had any luck replacing their optical/DVD super drive? After getting a CD stuck, the drive burned out. I've purchased a few drives, all of which didn't grab the CD and pull it in soon enough (I'd have to push the CD into the housing another quarter inch before it's gripped and sucked in).

    I purchased a (supposedly) Apple-branded drive from eBay which has been working a little better. But now when I re-attach the screen and its screws, it sandwiches the optical drive, making a loud whirring sound, and too tight to actually get a CD in there.

    So it works reasonably well if I could leave the screen off, but once on, no luck. I've tried multiple times and different ways, tightening screws, etc. I've searched and googled and can't find any help...!!!

    Hi,

    I have just recently replaced the CD/DVD-Superdrive, and experienced the same problem.

    Repeating the process, being very carefull when aligning the EFI-tape and the small EFI-"bumper", and the whole unit against the edges of the inside, I then got it right. Alignment with the alu-front is the key thing.

    As I also have replaced the internal 320GB harddisc with an 1TB, I´m reasonably "experienced" with the repair process! (Strange that Apple are using so shortlived components?)

    My advice is: Use magnetic Torc-screwdrivers, and be very carefull not loosing the small screws down in the case, particulary the screws that supports the data-connector to the LCD panel.

    And, many thanks to iFixit for excellent informations and pictures that has saved costly repairs, and had the nice experience of fixing problems on my own!

    Regards, Oivind Marman, Oslo, Norway.

    • As we mentioned earlier, this iMac still uses an LCD with a CCFL backlight. This particular display features four backlights, each of which require their own high-voltage AC power.

    • All four are powered by a single large inverter.

    i wonder why apple is not moving faster to LED screens? it would see with all these power supplies that you could have some serious space savings - assuming and LED screen has less power supply requirements.

    marcinpdx - 回复

    • This is the power supply. If you're doing this at home, be very careful handling it, as capacitors can remain charged even after power has been disconnected from the computer.

    • This iMac isn't very colorful, internally or externally. However, the power supply (once removed) is surprisingly vibrant.

    • The large and awkward logic board.

    • The ports are all soldered directly to the logic board, and connect at a slight angle to fit the curvature of the iMac's rear housing.

    any idea what socket type it is? (judging by what's available on newegg, i'd say it's probably socket P)

You would actually need to have someone manufacture a 'foot' that would replace the the current one and just stick out of the back to be mounted to something. Not to forget that if you wanted to change out the foot, you're essentially gutting the whole machine down to the chassis and rear housing.

    Do you guys have any plans to post a guide on how to remove the stand?

    I've added a picture for removing the stand from this iMac. As SupermeBeing said, It's not good news for mounting. There doesn't appear to be any way to remove the stand except from the inside of the iMac, meaning you'd pretty much have to take everything out to remove the stand, as well as come up with a custom mount.

    There's a more generic mounting bracket for both sizes at

I'd like to see a guide for the replacement of the video card on the iMac Intel 20" using the iMac you used in this guide "iMac 20" Teardown". It is the exact same model I have.

These are really great guides!! I appreciate you doing them!!

Can you tell me if I can use D.C. Power instead of 110 ac?

Wonderful teardown! I was able to remove the electronic guts and LCD of a broken aluminum imac thanks to this guide. Now I wonder what to do with an empty Aluminum case with stand. It's too thin for an aquarium. Any ideas?

What are the internal dimensions of the imac once everything is removed (other than the screen, and anything required for the screen to turn on)
