If you are having trouble turning your iMac on and off, it could be one of many problems. While it could be a battery issue, it could also be a broken power button. Cell buttons can take a beating through everyday wear and tear. If the iMac is dropped, internal components of the power button can be knocked loose or broken causing the connections to be missed. There are a few things that you can do to troubleshoot the problem before seeking repair.
First, you?ll want to make sure your battery is not dead. Charge your iMac overnight and try the power the power button again. If the iMac still doesn?t turn on, then it could be the power button. There are do-it-yourself kits available for replacing the power button. However, you will have to work with very small and delicate pieces of your iMac, and you run the risk of causing further damage. The other problem is that you could replace the power button only to find out that the issue was really a faulty battery. A professional diagnosis and repair can minimize the risk.
If you need to use your iMac or retrieve data from it before having it repaired, you might be able to power it on by removing the battery and plugging it into the charger. After about five minutes, the iMac may power on by itself. This allows you to get any immediate information that you need.
