Does a "shimm" help with the Airport card socket issue?

Hello!

I've come across a large quantity of G4 12" 1.33GHZ machines. Usually about 1 in 30 has the Airport card socket issue (which causes kernel panics and makes the machine unusable when wireless is on) but in this case it seems 1 in 6 or 7 are having the issue. I usually scrap these machines for parts, but since I'm encountering a lot of them, I'm recalling from years ago that someone mentioned a "shimm" fix that can help the issue.

I'm basically wondering if the "shimm fix" is a viable long-term solution, and if so, how is it done?

Thanks,

John

From my experience there's little you can do to repair the issue but you can try to install a round shim (little rim lock) under the card on the upper left screw hole. That will jack a little the upper card side and make a better contact of the connector to the socket. It worked on 50% of the 1.33 12" models I worked on. I don't remember if it was a 1/8" or 1/4" shim so you'll have to try different scenarios. Also, make sure the the lower gray plastic retainer is tightly secure. Let me know if this solution works for you.
