the inverter is part of the display and I am trying to turn my iMac 24’ into a monitor and I bought the LVDS controller board and i’m using the original imac power supply to power it by the 12V connector spliced to a DC jack but I can’t figure out how to power the inverter which takes 24V. I tried splicing the 4 red cables and 4 black cables to the 24V cable and a ground cable but it still won’t work. Here is what I have, please help

here’s a video of everything

Can't you use the iMac's original power supply? On the 2008 24" it's a dedicated 24V connector, separate from the 12V supply to the logic board -- presumably you disconnected it to get the panel out and just need to reconnect it?
