Introduction

Restore iSight capability by replacing your broken camera board.

  1. Loosen the single Phillips screw in the center of the access door.
    • Loosen the single Phillips screw in the center of the access door.

    • This screw is captive in the access door.

    • Remove the access door from your iMac.

    • The glass panel is fixed onto the front bezel with fourteen magnets around its perimeter.

    • Stick two suction cups to opposing corners of the glass panel.

    • To attach the suction cups we sell, first position the suction cup with the movable handle parallel to the face of the glass panel. While lightly holding the suction cup against the glass, raise the movable handle until it is parallel with the other handle.

    • If your suction cups refuse to stick, try cleaning both the glass panel and the suction cup with a mild solvent such as Windex.

    • Gently pull the glass panel straight up off the iMac.

    • The glass panel has several positioning pins around its perimeter. To avoid shearing these pins off the glass panel, be sure to only pull straight up during removal.

    • Be meticulous about cleaning the LCD and the inside face of the glass panel before reinstallation, as any fingerprints or dust trapped inside will be annoyingly visible when the display is on. Placing the glass flat, inside face down, on a fresh aluminum-foil surface is a good way to keep it clean.

    • Remove the following 12 screws securing the front bezel to the rear case:

      • Eight 13 mm T8 Torx.

      • Four 25 mm T8 Torx.

    • Disconnect the microphone cable connector, removing tape as necessary.

    • For the front bezel to sit properly, be sure to tuck the microphone cable and connector into the void next to the camera board.

    • Remove the two 9 mm T8 Torx screws securing the camera board to the rear case.

    • Slightly lift the camera board out of the rear case.

    • If necessary, remove the piece of tape covering the camera cable connector.

    • Pull the camera cable connector straight away from its socket.

    • During reassembly, be sure to insert the camera cable connector into its socket gently as they are both easily bent.
