Does my G5 isight have the 4 LED light diagnosic facility?
My iMac G5 20" Model A1145 (isight) turned itself off whilst I was out and now seems dead.
I did a little research and found a great step-by-step diagnosis guide on the Apple site - it said the G5 has 4 LED diagnosis lights that can help you narrow down the problem.
At this stage, I was feeling a little more hopeful when I saw an annoying note to the effect that the guide did not apply to the G5 iSight model.
I researched a little more and found this site and checked out the guides for my model. They seem premised on the idea that you already KNOW what you want to replace - eg power supply.
My problem is that I DON'T know yet, and I was hoping to use these LED diagnostics to help me with that. Using the guide for displays, I started the task of getting the case off and unplugging stuff with a view to having a look if they were there.
However I came to a part that needed me to employ a T6 torx screwdriver and I don't have one of that size (yet) so I'm going to have to go and get one from somewhere tomorrow but it just struck me that even if I find one and get the display out, I'm not sure if these LEDs are even IN this model.
Does anyone know? Needless to say, I am WELL outside the warranty period...
Questa è una buona domanda?
