iMac 2545 chime but no boot
I recently got a decent deal on a used early 2013 (edu) iMac. The specs weren't great (i3, 4GB, 500GB HDD), but I purchased an i5-3570k, 16GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 240GB SSD to put in it. I took it apart no issue, upgraded the parts, and put everything back together.
Before I put the screen on, I tested the screen to verify functionality. Unfortunately, the Mac chimed but the display didn't turn on. Every light except for the 4th LED lit up, indicating a display issue but I'm not sure as to where the problem issue is. I tested the Mac with an external display and it worked fine, but the built in display will not turn on.
My three ideas are
- The screen itself
- The connector on the logic board
- The cable connecting the display and logic board
I included pictures of the display connectors on the logic board/display as well.
Does anybody know how I could narrow down the list of potential issues so I don't waste money on a screen/logic board that I don't need?
