imac g4 retrofit

After losing three hard drives due to heat he decided to do something about it.

So if you buy a used identical model you have the discs already. To mount the motherboard he fabricated a bracket at one end where the iMac’s stage drops away.

In response to Finrod, Sep 11, 2009 9:46 AM in response to Grant Bennet-Alder You hit absolutely every feature of this design and nailed the presentation. In response to Limnos, Sep 10, 2009 9:04 AM in response to Susan Mandel He mentioned to us that the cutout seen above the drive is from a previous mod.

That’s what he ended up doing with the power wires for the display inverter. That goes a long way to identifying which model it is.

But the conversion wasn’t a total cakewalk. In response to japamac, Sep 10, 2009 7:02 AM in response to Grant Bennet-Alder [Valeriy] and [Cyrill] are bucking that trend with a beautiful iMac crafted from wood, brass, and leather (Russian, Google Translate). Q:

He even went as far as replacing the display with a higher resolution panel, though it sounds like it was dead to begin with so he didn’t have much choice in the matter. an 800Mhz-1Ghz G4 Apple system. That iconic “gooseneck” put up quite a fight when it was time to run the new wires up to the display. The machine in question is a late-model, impossibly thin iMac. There’s plenty of room to work with since he removed the CRT which originally occupied most of the computer’s space.

The front of the computer is adorned with a decent replica of the drivetrain of a locomotive that spins with the help of an electric motor. [Kaos2k], however, provided the much needed solution for those looking to get the fix over with: just solder the cable directly to the board. Between the proprietary screws that had to be coerced out with a Dremel to the massive spring that was determined to escape captivity, [Tom] recommends anyone else looking to perform a similar modification just leave the wires on the outside of the thing. [Paul] spent his summer bringing an iMac G3 into this decade. Crap. Just don’t shove this one into the wall. In response to Susan Mandel, Sep 10, 2009 5:57 AM in response to Susan Mandel It worked for him and it can for you as well. I wonder if it would be possible to (force to...) run OS 9 on this machine (not terribly cheap but new): You can run "Classic", an emulation of OS 9 even though your Mac is not OS 9 OS9-bootable. Also included are a fusion360 file and STEP file so you can create new mods easily for this project.

In response to Susan Mandel, Sep 10, 2009 7:12 AM in response to japamac Like many with a 27″ iMac, [Gerry’s] been experiencing some screen brightness issues. Something to think about the next time somebody tells you that Apple’s “brave” hardware choices are only a modern phenomena. Many of the Macs for sale on eBay and Craig's List do not include the discs. Nice mod!!! The solution for the hard drive was a little more unorthodox. The hard drive mounts on the original carriage, and he did some creative gluing to make his replacement DVD drive align with the original optical drive opening. Apple may provide or recommend responses as a possible solution based on the information provided; every potential issue may involve several factors not detailed in the conversations captured in an electronic forum and Apple can therefore provide no guarantee as to the efficacy of any proposed solutions on the community forums.

That in itself is an amazing build, but to see the entire thing in action, you’ll have to check out the video below. The new design is a bit more difficult to build so I included build instructions, a BOM and installation guide in the PDF file. Since it was a refurb, I couldn’t verify against the serial numbers listed on the extension page, so I had to bring it in to the Genius Bar. This was a local sale and I was able to check the computer before purchasing as well as having it in hand at the moment of payment. I chose the Q170 of asus, the CPU is i7-7700, the memory is 16GB, and the hard disk is samsung 960 evo. Rather than being little more than a display piece, this Intel NUC powered iMac is now able to run the latest version of Mac OS. You must log in or register to reply here. More Less. If you like the idea of reviving old Apple hardware but don’t want to anger the goose, you could start on something a little easier. In response to japamac, Sep 11, 2009 9:06 AM in response to Finrod I am an artist and run a software program for design on OS9. My trusted old iMac G4 700 (dome base) is just too slow these days, but I still love the design. Justin Rosenschein liked JCC Pickup Winding Machine. Like putting an iPad inside of a Macintosh Classic shell. The retrofit starts off with a brief teardown, which is quite interesting in itself. This certainly will fix an overheating problem but it doesn’t do much for the sexy style we’re accustomed to with Apple hardware. There is still a lot of work to do this retrofit, and it's all manual work.↓, The grinding is necessary, the heat pipe and the contact parts can be fixed by adhesive silica gel. MacMedic. In response to Susan Mandel, Sep 10, 2009 7:11 AM in response to Susan Mandel JavaScript is disabled. You draw that board? Since your current G4 is the 1.25GHz MDD model you should have the system install discs that came with it. In response to Grant Bennet-Alder, Question: Well done! Uh-oh, once installed there was no problem with the mounting but the SATA cable didn’t reach far enough to plug it in. Instead of a complete disassembly a wooden frame was constructed around the display, the aluminum base was covered in veneer, and the back of the iMac was covered in leather. Tyler Stevens has added a new log for Resurrection of the 2003 iSight Camera. He ended up removing all of the mounting screws except for one coercing the drive close enough for the connection. Retrofit an old Apple Studio/Cinema Display with a new LCD. Released in 2002, Apple’s iMac G4 was certainly a unique machine. IMac G4 screen is nothing more than three, first, retention arm, change a head, arbitrarily larger, higher resolution screen. The finished product looks great from the front and sides, with the cables running out the back as the only indication that it’s had some major work done on it. In response to japamac, Sep 10, 2009 6:47 AM in response to japamac The G4 MDD uses a special version of OS 9.2, so you can't use a retail install CD to install OS 9. Luckily for [JnsBn] aka [BEAN] the computer in question was still functional with a second monitor, so he decided to implement a cheap repair to get the screen working again by making it see-through. This is a new version of my rockpro64 G4 cube kit. 5th December 2010, 11:44 AM #2.
