  • Today I received a mid-2010 21.5in iMac from a friend of a family member. I replaced the old hard drive (per request of previous owner) and put it back together. I powered it up and didn't get a video output. It does chime, the hard drive spins up, and I think I can hear the fans, so that's kinda promising. It's a neat machine, so it would be nice to get working.

    update: I finally cleaned it out a few days ago and generally reseated everything. Unfortunately, the screen remains black and I can't even get a signal from the mini DP. I could try and diagnose the bad part(s) but the assembly/disassembly process is too time-consuming for me. Might just bring it to a recycling center after taking out the CPU, HDD, and RAM.
