suspected faulty power supply on iMac intel 17". How do I diagnose?
I found an iMac intel 17" a1208 2.0ghz on the street yesterday.
Took it home, plugged it in, pressed power button and got no signs of life whatsoever. So I suspected the power supply.
I took it apart. Looks like nobody's tried to fix it so I may be in luck that its a small problem. I read that there are 3 diagnostic lights on the board to indicate power/communication with board etc. only the first led is lit when plugged in. When I press the power button I get no response or other lights come on.
The power supply looks a little grimy compared to other components. Any help in indentifying the problem would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Is this a good question?
