Video issues with diagnostic LEDs

About two weeks ago my Intel iMac (EMC2210) failed to boot. Upon pressing the power button I could hear the fans spin up, but the screen remained black and there was no startup chime.

So, I began looking for what might have happened. I hooked up an external monitor and got nothing. I searched here and ran across a description of the diagnostic LEDs. So, I checked the diagnostic LEDs.

#1 lights up when I plug in the power cord.

#2 lights up when I press the power button and stays on.

#3 lights up for a brief time when the power button is pressed and then goes out.

From the answers that I found on the diagnostic LEDs I figured that the video card had went bad. But this is where I am stumped. I ordered a brand new video card for the iMac and just finished installing it. Unfortunately, there is no change in the behavior of the computer. LEDs 1 and 2 still light and LED 3 still blinks and then goes out.

I am stumped. Could it be a bad power supply despite the #2 LED coming on? Could it be a bad mainboard? Is there any way to know if it is a bad mainboard? I don't want to sink any more money into the machine if it is toast. Any help or suggestions on what to check would be greatly appreciated.

Is it an iMac early 2008?


Yes, it is an early 2008 - MB324LL/A - iMac8,1 - A1224 - 2210 model. They really have a lot of ways to denote a machine.

LED Startup Sequence

LED #1 = Power available.

If no LED is visible:

• Verify AC source

• Verify known-good AC cable is connected

• Verify cable connection between AC inlet and power supply

• Verify cable connection between power supply and logic board

• Verify power supply

LED #1 + LED #2 = Power available, and system is powered on.

If second LED is not visible when power button is pressed:

• Verify power button connection to logic board

• Verify power button functionality

• Verify cable connection between power supply and logic board

• Verify power supply

• Verify logic board

LED #1 + LED #2 + LED #3 = Power available, system is powered on, and video card found.

If third LED is not visible after power on:

• Verify that MXM video card is seated properly

• Verify logic board

LED #1 + LED #2 + LED #3 + LED #4 = Power available, system is powered on, video card found, and internal LCD found.

If fourth LED is not visible after power on:

• Verify cable connections between LCD panel and logic board

• Inspect LCD display cables for cable damage

• Verify external video functionality, and according to result check the following items:

-If external display works then verify/replace LED backlight board

-If external display works then verify/replace LCD panel

-If external display does not work verify/replace logic board

Was your video card supplier a reputable one?

This is what I had found earlier. Therefore, since I have tried two different video cards I am going to guess that it is the logic board. Therefore, how do I verify the logic board?


Apple's idea of verifying is Replace it and see if the new one works.


That is what I was afraid of. Thank you for all of your help.
