Use this guide to replace a broken LED driver board.

    • Before beginning, unplug your iMac and lay it on a soft surface as shown.

    • Stick a suction cup near each of the two top corners of the glass panel.

    • To attach the suction cups we sell, first position the suction cup with the movable handle parallel to the face of the glass panel. While lightly holding the suction cup against the glass, raise the movable handle until it is parallel with the other handle.

    • If your suction cups refuse to stick, try cleaning both the glass panel and the suction cup with a mild solvent.

  1. Gently lift the glass panel perpendicular to the face of the LCD enough to clear the steel mounting pins attached along the underside of the top edge of the glass panel. Pull the glass panel away from the lower edge of the iMac and carefully set it aside.

How does someone tests to see if a LED Driver Board is broken or not?

Same question as above, how to check if it's power board or LED driver board that is damaged?

It might not be a complete answer but I had to change my LED Driver Board when my display went black ( as if the computer was in sleep mode ) as soon as the computer was on. I had to push the power button to get the screen back multiple time. There was also a problem with the graphic card but even after changing the GC, the screen would go black. We figure it was the LED Driver Board when we realized the computer wouldn’t show anything on an external monitor. Hope it helps :)
