    Minor repair on a Mac
    Just noticed the input for my microphone is broken - speakers work fine but cannot get the mic to work. Are Macs hard to repair oneself? I would guess I first need to locate the piece and then replace it, if possible, or take it to the Apple store. (or, hehe, get a new Mac!!!). I have a PowerPC QuickSilver.

    Specs:
    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7 OSX10.11, iMac 2008 OSX10.11, MBP Late2011OSX10.11 , iPhone 3GS Note 8!
    The Digital Audio and Quicksilver did not have a built in Mic Input. There was the Line/Speaker out and a special jack for the Apple Pro Speakers.

    Did you get the quicksilver used? You can get a Griffin iMic that plugs into a USB port and then you will have a Mic and Line input. I have one and it works great.

    Did not realize that - thanks for the info! Wonder why in the world they would build the Quicksilver without a mic input??!!
