Looks like my iMac G5 will require a little more work soon. Took the cover off to blow out dust, now that it’s daily commute to work is done and I’ve got more leaking capacitors. So far they don’t appear to have an affect on the operation of the computer, so I won’t repair them until something is actually broken. Soldering on the motherboard is always a risky move, so I don’t want to replace these 7 capacitors until they stop the computer. I still run this computer all day long, every day, and until about 4 weeks ago, it was commuting back and forth to work every day. Takes a beating and keeps on ticking.
The picture of the original blown capacitors is here
