  1. Hi folks. Working on resurrecting a G5 20" imac with a blown power supply. Everything seems to be running now except /etc links to root instead of /private/etc, so the system boots into the command line. The drive seems ok, with fsck -fy returning a clean bill of health. I'm trying to save the drive which has lots of good software there. Any ideas for fixing that link would be appreciated.

    iMac G5 Power Supply Question

    Typical, that I found the info right after posting! For an imac G5 17"/20" isight (early 2006) My EEE code is UQP with an 661-3780 power supply with only 5 pinouts these are: Grey: +12V Grey: +12V Black: ground Black: ground Brown: PFW (battery powered signal between +3 and +6.5 volt to switch power supply on) Hopefully this might help somebody else. Cheers

    iMac G5 Power Supply Question

    Hi folks, this is another question really, as I'm new so can't post a new topic yet. I've a G5 20" isight with a blown 661-3780 power supply. The DC out for these is only 5 pins and the supply itself states 12.1 volts and 15.4 amps. Can anybody please indicate the voltages on the 5 pinouts. The wires are 2 grey, 2 black, and 1 brown. The grey and black wires are joined on the power supply circuit board, so its really only 3 pinouts. I want to test the machine before splashing out on an expensive replacement, but haven't been able to find the pinout voltages anywhere. Getting desperate!
