What's the next step?
I bought an iMac A1207 from a PC repair shop for 111.50. Someone had dropped it off for repair and never came back to get it. The guy who owns the shop knows nothing about macs and gave it to me for a steal. What he told me: It powers on and the front LED lights up and stays on but there is no screen activity at all. The bezel is cracked in a few spots and has some chips so I think it was dropped/fell.
I know a bit about iMacs as I've done a few upgrades on my A1174 but I'm a bit unsure what to do next. I consulted the Service Source manual and performed some basic tests (PRAM, SMC, RAM). From what I can gather, the problem is a bad logic/mother board but after resetting the SMC and restarting the fan blows very loud and I get no front LED light at all as well as the black screen.
I'm out of tests to perform and have no idea what the loud fan means. Anyone got any ideas/advice or should I just hit up eBay and shop for a new logic board?
Thanks in advance.:)
