%#*@ this was a horrible guide until I read your comment. The model I’m pulling apart has no magnets holding it together
Do you think you folks will be doing a Teardown for the rev. 2 logicboard? The Xeon’s cooling system looks like it’s permanently sealed shut (non-refillable) and I can’t figure out how to remove the GPS antennae
hey Simon, I used 2-sided tape….this is assuming the new sensor doesn’t already come with an adhesive surface already applied.
a roll of kapton tape for your own peace of mind will make sure nothing detaches from thermally-induced adhesive crystallization
make sure you position it in such a way that you can easily plug the lead back into the mobo….not a lot of length to that wire
the retaining bolts for the drive chassis are definitely T8's, not T9
I got mine from a distributer in china
it's actually an LG screen. it's tricky to do business with them, because their english is very limited, but with patience, everything works out
See the thin twisted black wire on the back of the display in this photo? The one that ends in a small piece of black tape:
that piece of tape covers the tiny thermal sensor at the end of that wire. It is not included as part of the new display, and must be transferred from the old display or your computer will turn into a nightmare.
Something you may want to include for anyone replacing their damaged screen with a new one:
The replacement screens from LG more often DO NOT come with the thermal sensor attached, which means if you replace the screen without transferring the thermal sensor from the old LCD module, the computer will go absolutely insane, rendering it unusable.
This means re-opening the iMac and destroying the brand new adhesive strips. Because I had no idea this sensor existed, much panic ensued before I was forced to rip everything apart again and ultimately securing it closed with packing tape while I waited for the new adhesive strips to arrive in the mail....Not to mention the computer belongs to a client who lives 3 hours outside of the city.
