Display removal after new screen just fitted. Any tips? Tape sticky!
I recently upgraded a late 2014 iMac 27in with a new OWC Aura SSD blade and a 6TB secondary hard drive. Everything has been fine for months but now it won’t turn on - or it will because I can hear and feel the fan.
But nothing appears on the screen and it won’t display to my Thunderbolt Display either. I’ve done the standard SMC reset etc and even tried to start it from the internet. Is this a logic board failure?
If so how can I remove the display for a second time without cracking it? The Fixit screen tapes are super sticky and the cutting wheel seems to just push the tapes in rather than cut through the foam core. Using the plastic cards also from Fixit is super scary because the glass is just stuck firm.
What do you guys recommend to get this out? I was thinking of softening the glue with a hairdryer or using some kind of solvent to ease the process. I’m sure one of you must’ve tackled this issue before! Thanks for any helpful advice guys… :)
