imac overheating service

A very common problem with iMacs, especially as they get older is heat. If your iMac is getting hot or the the fans are getting very loud then it is highly advisable to bring your iMac in for a cooling system service.  Heat can lead hardware failures and very expensive repair bills.  It’s important to get your iMac serviced every 18 months or so. This will involve stripping the iMac down and cleaning out all the dust which gets in to all the wrong places, you’ll be amazed how much is in there! We’ll apply new thermal compound to the CPU to help to transfer heat away from the brain inside your iMac. In the long run it will save you a lot of money.  We’ll service your iMac for £75, and once the service is complete your iMac will be as quiet as when it was first unboxed.

imac broken screen

A broken iMac screen, a dim iMac screen or even an iMac screen with strange patterns all over it. These are some of the screen problems associated with iMacs.  We can help solve all of these problems and the solutions may be different for each one.  A cracked front glass is a fairly straightforward repair and won’t cost the earth. Be aware though that hte new slim iMac has a bonded display which means the entire screen would need replacing. A dim screen which can happen on older iMacs can be resolved with a replacement LCD. More expensive than just the broken front glass to get this one repaired, but considerably cheaper than a new iMac! Strange patterns on  the screen can be a sign that the GPU inside your iMac is faulty.  Sometimes we can fix the GPU with a re-flow but we prefer to replace with a new chip instead. This is an expensive repair sometimes but again much cheaper than buying new.  iMac screen repairs start from £130.
