Lol, so I had to perform this procedure again, after the first time only held up for nine months. I’m getting a new Mac mini soon, but I still needed to use this iMac for a few more days. The iMac is over 9.5 years old at this point!
Anyway, I did a second bake, and I followed the second video (link is in the introduction) so that I wouldn’t have to take out the whooooole motherboard. It’s still a harrowing ordeal, but so much simpler than the first video, especially since I had already replaced the BR2032 battery.
Note: when you’re trying to connect that one connector to the back-side of the motherboard, it really helps to take out the five screws that hold the motherboard in place. You remove the *screws* but *not* the motherboard, and you get an extra bit of give on the motherboard itself so you have more room to put your fat fingers behind it. :) James does this in his second video but doesn’t call it out.
I baked at 415°F for 12 minutes. It worked! Again!
Just wanted to add my thanks for this wonderfully meticulous video. I’ve had experience taking apart complicated computers before (particularly the original iMacs way back in the late 90s), but this iMac is by far the most ridiculous. That logic board is an amazing display of infuriating design. :)
This repair video, however, was incredibly thorough, and made me confident that I could do this myself. And I did! I was luckier than most… my iMac survived 9 years before this problem happened. And now it’s back up and running, hopefully for another 9 more years.
A couple suggestions:
1) I didn’t actually read the comments or see the second video. It’d be good to get the second bake video on iFixIt’s site, if possible.
2) Stupid me did the bake at 200° *Fahrenheit*. Luckily, I caught my error before I put everything back together and redid a second bake immediately at 400° F. It’d be good to put one of those in-video comments in that section to make people aware of this important detail.
