November 2006

On November 2, 2006, Apple announced the iMac G5 Repair Extension Program (REP) for Power Supply Issues. Information on the Repair Extension Program for Power Supply Issues has been added to the take apart and troubleshooting chapters.

This REP is a worldwide program that applies to iMac G5 20-inch (Ambient Light Sensor) models sold worldwide between May 2005 and October 2005 that feature a 2.0GHz G5 processor and that have power-related issues as a result of a specific component failure within the computer's power supply. Refer to the "iMac G5 Repair Extension Program (REP) for Power Supply Issues" document at the begining of the manual for more information.

Note: The iMac G5 power supply is no longer available as a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) part.

A diecut piece of microfoam (922-7671) is included with all replacement optical drives and display bezels. It should be installed in between the disc drive and the display bezel to prevent optical media from ejecting out of the system and dropping to the desktop. Only one diecut of microfoam should be used per system. Refer to the replacement procedures in Take Apart for either the optical drive, display bezel, or microfoam shim for more information.

Display/Bezel Assembly Elimination

Effective July 24, 2006, the Display and Bezel assembly module will no longer be available as a single service part for the iMac G5 (17- and 20-inch models). The Display and Bezel are now available as two separate service parts (see below) to simplify inventory and reduce repair costs.

  • 922-6817 Front Cover Assy,w/Optical Slot, iMac G5 20"
  • 661-3622 Panel, Display w/Brackets, iMac G5 20"
