E mac My mom gave me an emac that is "broken"? She isn't real good with computers, and I am not very familiar with Apple computers. I was looking for a service manual for this machine. Also, I have no idea as to how to even get this machine open.

Taking one of these apart can be dangerous. It has something to do with high voltage stored in the picture tube capacitor. I don't know much about CRTs but I've heard this enough to believe it is true. Proceed with caution!

I have no idea either. Hopefully the service manual will help you out.

If you need service manuals, I've made a custom google search engine for them.

Have apple eMac forgot user password can you help


You need to start up from the system cd for the eMac then use 'Password Utility' to change the password.
Alternatively, if you are transferring the files to another Mac, you can start up the eMac in 'Target Disk' mode by holding down the 'T' key during start-up until a Firewire symbol appears on the screen. The computer can then be connected to another Mac which will see the eMac as an external HD.

How to remove a tilt/swivel base from an eMac?


Hi Robert.
Remove all connections from your E-mac including powercord. Put a folded blanket on the floor and lift the E-mac from the table and put it on the folded blanket so that the screen is on the blanket. Now you have acces to the bottom. Unscrew and take the swivel off. Be careful because eMac is the heaviest computer ever made by Apple. Good luck.

I believe this is your mac?

eMac G4/1.0 (ATI)1.0 GHz PowerPC 7445 (G4)apple_emac.jpgIntro Date:May 6, 2003*Disc Date:April 13, 2004*Order No:M8950LL/A*Model No:A1002 (EMC 1903)Subfamily:eMac ATIModel ID:PowerMac4,4Std.

This is a very old model and I doubt it will sell for much. I would suggest putting a listing on eBay and craigslist. Price it at about $50. (Do "buy it now" on eBay)
However, you could get a lot of mileage out of it yourself if you want to use it as a personal web server, or a Linux machine. Research both on Google if you are interested (or ask me another question here at fix-ya).

I have a emac powerpc G4 i cant find how to open cd player no eject button


If you hold down the mouse button, and then turn on the eMac, the drive will pop out, and you can put in a CD. Also, you can hold the F12 button to eject. Even if there isn't a dedicated Eject key on the keyboard, you can eject this way.

Hi i would like to find out what is the latest software for an apple G4 Emac computer.


Well you will have to look for software made for the PowerPC architecture and not for x86 systems. Look for universal binary in the software as this shows that it will work on PowerPC architecture.As for the operating system OS 10.5 Leopard was the final version for PowerPC based systems.
Good luck

I bought a eMac from the dep of Education and I am unable to get into it because i don't have the username or password


You should format the internal hard disk and install a clean and fresh version of Mac-OS anyways and create a new user-account. If there is no install-disc included, try calling Apple, tell them your eMac's serial number (All eMac's have their serial numbers printed inside the disc drive door), and ask them if they have any replacement install discs for your model of eMac. Check out the Apple eMac support page or the Apple eMac support forum for more informations.

Emac can't see Epson tx100 printer


Hi there,

You should verify that your eMac has USB 2.0. If you go to the apple symbol on the top left hand corner. Click on About this Mac and go into your system profiler you can see what USB the computer has. Many of the eMac only came with USB 1.1 as this was the protocal of the time.

Hope this helps.

G4 not recognizing CD


Reader could be broken in your mac. It is probably easier just to replace your CD-ROM drive than try and fix it.
