Hold down the mouse click when you boot the computer.

It will eject the cd automatically.

I know it sounds weird, but it works.

If not let me know, it's not the only way to do it.

Use a large paper clip and fold it shaped. Gently insert it into the cd slot and drag the card out. My kid has done it twice so far. Make sure the power is off and if the clip hangs, don't pull.

Imac g4 cd drive


It;'s not a great Idea flipping the mac over they have a special stand to put them on when working on them. But it should be able to cope with it. Your mac is relatively old now. With all the moving around it could have just given up the ghost.

They are quite tricky to work on with the hard drive sitting on top and the cables running over and down the side there is a stack of heat generated there. Just make sure you put ll the thermal back in. If it's not a miss seated connection it could be a number of things. Cable, heads. Trouble shooting is quite tricky. As it is a desktop, in a lot of cases it is cheaper to buy an external DVD reader/writer. They are faster now!

You should be able to install OK when it is in terminal mode. You could run disk utility but more than likely you'll have to run the installation again.

Sorry, not much help.
