iMac battery - help!

Message #1 - Posted 2005/11/28 - Joe

Can anyone tell me how to get into the back of an iMac to replace the battery? I did it once but so long ago i forgot how to do it.

Thanks
Joe

When I needed to, I found instructions on the apple web site, and, I think, a more detailed description from a non-apple site. All I did was google for "iMac battery replace" (without the "s).

Depends on the model. You have to take off the shell on the original Bondi Blues. Subsequent models had the battery accessible through the memory door - bottom, back.

It may not be the battery. It seems that a number of people have experienced battery like problems under Mac OS 10.3, which disappears under Mac OS 10.4. What Mac OS version are you running?

And "What iMac" might be relevvant, too? (Like Bondi Blue 233, 266/333, iMac G3 slot-loader 350-700 MHz, G4 "Lampshade", G5 1st or 2nd rev?) --
