Display problem when disconnecting iMac from TV

I did a search here and elsewhere and haven't found this problem mentioned anywhere.

I don't think it has anything to do with being careful. I am always careful plugging/unplugging anything. It is either due to the fact that it requires quite a lot of pressure to get the...

It's well inside and it's a solid piece. I've considered the crazy glue idea, but the idea of getting crazy glue on any of the contacts makes me shy away from it.

Title says it all. I pulled out the optical cable I use to connect my iMac to my home theater and the mini toslink adapter pulled apart. The small brass ferrule is still inside the jack and is...

Really? I've walked through the hangar at work and I'm relatively certain that there are tools there that require considerably more skill to operate than a phillips screwdriver. ;)

The CPU in the Intel iMac is not soldered to the board. There are instructions on the net already for changing the processor. People have already swapped the CD for the C2D in the iMacs.

I picked up the Creative iTrigue 3400 2.1 setup for about $40. I'm very happy with it. It's a big improvement over the built in sound.

Plus you can sell the RAM you take out. I saw a guy sell the 2 x 512 MB sticks out of his 24" iMac on eBay last week for $80. IMO, the Apple price is too high.
