Sorry. Wasn't intending that. Just need some help
Omg I absolutely need to do this
Resurrecting this thread - are these steps different for the 15"?
Came here for the G4 lampshade
Thanks for the tip ersterhernd.
I'm almost ready to start working on my 17" imac mod. However, I've got a couple of questions, I hope you still read this message:
+ Why you all speak about having a second imac G4 unit to employ its neck wires? Couldn't it be used normal wires? Moreover considering that with the tip of the image above, only one wire is needed! Regarding this question, which diameter wires should be employed?
If I jog my memory, it was not so much the wires themselves, but the female connecting pins on the ends that were the issue.
I've retired both of my 17" builds to re-use parts elsewhere but still use the 20" iMac G4 as a showcase retro system in my office. The empty shells of the 17 inchers sit peacefully under a towel in the closet.
Thanks for the clarification Ersterhernd. Got it... I guess you were speakng about these female connectors:
I think I'll stick to the tip mentioned above and won't get second imac neck. In understand soldering the 1kohm resistor at pin 14 and 16 but, where does it go the small wire soldered to pin 15 at the MOLEX DVI connector?
It's a pitty you don't use the 17" builds anymore! In my case I'm a final year high school student that had to prepare the final project for Electronics subject. Looking into my father's workshop I discover the imac G4 and here I am! I told the teacher about the project and although he initially didn't even understand the goal, he has been very supportive (though little aid really helped me
Cheers! -and happy Christmas to everybody!
