WOW. antique system. anyways, if its a floppy disk that is stuck, hold down the mouse button during boot. that will eject it before startup. if that does not work, go the paperclip route. unfold a paperclip and poke it into the little hole below the drive.

I havent seen one of this model in over a decade.

Sounds like the battery is dead. Replace the battery. If you take the battery out, and connect power, will it turn on then?

The mac mini that can't stay on


hi,

How old is the PRAM battery? If you have never changed it since you bought the computer, be aware that they last from three to five years. A dead battery will prevent the computer from starting.

And if the battery is new then follow steps below and ur problem will be solved..

Reset PMU (Power Manager Unit).

1. Disconnect all cables except the power cord.
2. Touch any metal surface to ground yourself, disconnect the power cord, and open the computer.
3. Find the PMU reset button and push it. once only. It's a tiny, tiny button, probably unlabeled, located on the motherboard and probably near the battery.
4. Close the computer, reconnect everything, and give it a try.

If this doesn't work, replace the battery. BTW, if you have a power strip, that doesn't necessarily mean that it gives surge protection. Get a good surge protector/battery backup.

Goodluck,
Please Don't forget to rate me as fixya..

OK-so our mac computer is roughly 1 yr. old and its worked pretty great for the time we have had it but,one yesterday i turned i tried to get on the computer and it wouldn't turn on so i jiggled the...


The easiest way to resolve this problem should be to reset the SMC - System Management Controller - which deals with how power is distributed to various parts of your Mac, including the fans.

How to reset it depends on what kind of Mac you have, though.

For 'desktop' Macs, including iMac and Mac Pro:

  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Unplug the computer's power cord.
  3. Wait fifteen seconds.
  4. Attach the computer's power cord.
  5. Wait five seconds, then press the power button to turn on the computer.


If you have a portable with a battery you cannot remove:
  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected.
  3. On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time.
  4. Release all the keys and the power button at the same time.
  5. Press the power button to turn on the computer.



If you have a portable with a battery you can remove:
  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Disconnect the MagSafe power adapter from the computer, if it's connected.
  3. Remove the battery.
  4. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
  5. Release the power button.
  6. Reconnect the battery and MagSafe power adapter.
  7. Press the power button to turn on the computer.
That should take care of the problem. Good luck!

Unable to turn on the computer and power supply is OK because other devices are plugged into it. Tried procedure in apple manual which says to hold down power button and at same time hold down 4 buttons on...


The iMac G4 will refuse to turn on if the logic board battery is dead. Since this model Macintosh is now about eight years old, it's quite reasonable to suspect your battery is dead. Battery replacement is a relatively simple task for a certified technician, but unfortunately the battery in this model is not a user-replaceable part.

PowerPC G4 switch-on problem


Hi Branko
Rather than forking money out for a battery. There are a couple of things I really need to know first. Have you changed anything on the machine recently? What OS are you running. How much memory (ram) Size of hard drive.

As you are running quite an old mac these details are important to identify the problem.

Mac mini will not produce video


Hi, Sorry you are having problems,
Well, that sounds pretty bad. Does the Mac make the start-up sound when you turn it on?
Does the little light in front turn on ?
Do you hear the hard drive spinning up and working to boot the mac ?
So, if all these questions are answered Yes.... sounds like the video connection has blown.
If you say the Mac is almost new, Apple should cover this with the one year warranty.
Good luck.

I-mac power faliure


I'm thinking that your battery in the iMac is dead or very close to being dead. Or your power cord is no good anymore or your power supply is on the verge of being dead. Hope it helps.

G4 dual 1ghz not switching on


Many times if the battery on the motherboard dies, the computer won't startup at all. Try replacing the battery and push the tiny reset button on the motherboard and see if it will power on then.
