My computer is a 2005 iMac G5 with 2.0GHz processor (the ambient light sensor model)
As with other bluetooth issues my bluetooth says it is not avaiable, in addition the hardware says it is not present and in the hardware test it says bluetooth is not present.
I have reset the SMU and PRAM/NVRAM, restarted numerous times and unplugged all USB peripherals. I've done the hardware test from my origional install DVD and an error DOES appear ( the error is 2STH/1/2:CPU T-Diode )
however from searching that seems to be an overheating error, and my computer temp stays constant and i have no issues with the computer going on standby mode randomly.
So i am at a loss at this point, i have to assume my Module is burnt out....
if it is, is the bluetooth module soldered onto the main/motherboard in this model?
if not, will the module here -->http://www.mac-pro.com/Card-AirPort-...&category=4510
work for my model?
One more thing, my Mac IS under warranty still as i purchased the extended one. Can Apple themselves replace the module (especially with the steep price)?
(sorry for double posting, i couldnt decide where to post this thread)
I'd recommend giving Apple a call or driving your machine to the nearest Apple Store. I've learned it's better not to muck with mobo-related issues.
