Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop
Hey Mark! I am in a similar predicament... actually my iMac G5 3rd gen iSight died last September (2008) and I'm really pissed! I'm still paying for it (on my credit card bill) and it is just a pretty paperweight! I think I'm getting close to a solution but it requires some hard thinking. There is virtually NO documention for 3rd gen iMacs on the net... I am to the point where I just ordered an SATA dock so I can at least (I hope) recover whatever what was on my HD. That will be a task unto itself; again, there is very little information on the net about disassembly for the "backwards" assembly of the 3rd gen. You will need torx as well as phillips head screwdrivers first of all... The back does not come off... it is disassembled from the front. The face (bezel) has to come off, then the iSight, then the monitor (LCD screen)... then from there, I'm lost. I'm almost a week away from finding the answer. After I get the HD out and do what I have to do, I think it is a matter of replacing the PSU as well.
Will keep you informed. I know this may seem too late (your post being in Jan of this year) but put yourself in my shoes... I've been looking for a solution for almost a year.
