Removing the Power Supply

  1. Important: If you are replacing a defective power supply, review the "iMac G5 Repair Extension Program for Power Supply Issues" topic at the begining of this manual before proceeding to the next step.
  2. Remove the screw on the far right and loosen the other two captive screws. Note: The captive screws remain attached to the power supply, do not remove them.
  3. Disconnect the ambient light sensor located next to the power supply connector.

4. Disconnect the power supply cable by pressing the connector release tab and using a wide, flat-blade screwdriver to pry apart the connector.

5. Pull on the connector, not on the cables.

6. Lift up the power supply at the sides approximately five mm or until it touches the middle case screw.

7. Tilt up the power supply until it clears the edge of the main circuit board. Lift it out of the computer and set it aside.
