The eMacs had a problem with the logic boards where they would turn on and not display video, you can check to see if yours is affected by removing the RAM door and looking at the capacitor to see if it is expanded, it most likely is. The unit unfortunately is not worth getting repaired.

First Gen Intel iMac Hard Drive Replacement Part 1
I would take a look at this video to see if this is something you want to take on. These are not the easiest computers to disassemble but if your good at following directions and if you have the right tools, you should be able to do this.

Frozen page on imac


Hi Mike,

iMac G5, more than 10 years old now....
sometimes, the new applications on the old Macs just don't work well...

Are you able to get out and start again?
DOes it freez every time?
Have you made sure your up to date, software update...

Honestly, it's time for a new mac...
You can import all your data to the new Mac and it will make your head spin to see the difference in preformace and capacity.

Can I Sell Mom's eMac


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).

MA878LL iMac 24" core 2 duo 2.4 do not turn on,


Checking the power supply isn't the easiest thing to do, it involves pulling apart the entire machine.
You can try resetting the SMC, unplugging all power, hold the power button for 5 seconds, replace power, then attempt to turn on.
if it still won't turn on, and assuming you didn't get AppleCare or it is expired (past 3 years) it might be worth taking in to an Authorized Apple Repair Facility and see if they will check it out for free. If it is under warranty, most definitely take it in or call 1-800-APL-CARE
If neither of those are an option, Power Supply http://www.ifixit.com/Apple-Parts/iMac-Intel-24-Inch-2-4-2-8-GHz-or-3-06-EMC-No-2211-GHz-Power-Supply/IF169-002
a tear down from iFixit for the 20" model, it is most likely very similar for your model as well http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repair/Installing-iMac-Intel-20-Inch-EMC-2133-and-2210-Power-Supply/1006/1
Hopefully that helps. Good Luck

Emac model number A1002


It could be a hard drive problem or it could just be a software issue. Given the model, it could be running System 9 or X or both. If it is 9 it just may need to be blessed. The disc you are trying to load sounds model specific as opposed to Apple's retail discs which will load on any of their models capable of running that particular operating system. Whether it is worth fixing is really a judgement call, if you have use of a 2nd machine a hard drive / install disc can be had for cheap enough, as far as resell value, I would say no. Due to the limited information you have on the history of the machine I would suggest following these links to try and determine if it is indeed hardware or software:

Your Mac won't start up in Mac OS X (Mac OS X 10.3.9 or earlier)
