Question about Computers & Internet

My G3 1,5tb station does not show up on my iMac anymore. It used to work fine, without any problems and it has only been connected to my iMac. Now it does power up, but the station does not appear on my iMac. Any ideas on how to fix this problem? I'm in bad need of some new files I haven't backed up yet.

Check to make sure file sharing is still on at the G3. If it is running a Server app or OS X Server, make sure File Sharing Services is up and running.
Also, check the network connections on both computers. First, open the Network System Preferences pane on the G3 and write down its IP address (Note: you should have IP addresses showing on both computers, and if they use the same router subnet, the first three parts of the IP address should be identical and the last part should be different, but still between 0 and 255. If this is not so, you have a network problem between one computer and the router or other device that provides DHCP services.).
Next, on your iMac, open the Network Utility application (in Applications/Utilities). Click the Ping tab and type in the G3 IP address, then click the Ping button. If the network is good, you should get round-trip time statistics for each ping.
If the Ping test fails, then do the following steps to troubleshoot the network. Check to see if you have link lights on for both computers at the network switch, if not, check the network cable for the unlit port. If they are connected to different switches, also check the uplink port link lights on each switch. Testing a suspect connection is most simply done by trying a known good cable, a different switch port, or another computer with a known good network interface.

SOURCE: Suddenly, my 500GB Seagate external hard drive couldn't mount on my iMac. It was working fine till yesterday. I connected them to the Mac USD port, and the light in the seagate is blinking... Any

I can only comment generically:

I would try to uninstall the drive on the OS. Then re-start the computer. After the re-start, connect the drive and see if the drive re-installs itself.

If the error persists, then the drive is indicating failure. To absolutely verify if it has failed, take the drive to a store where there are MAC computers and try the drive on one of their computers to see if it works.

A continuous flashing LED on most devices where the LED does not normally continuously flash is an indication of a failure of the device. Some devices will flash an error code when designed to do so, and if possible.

Magic Jack Plus worked in USB and then Internet on computer stopped working


It's got the wrong gateway setting. Without a gateway (router) to the Internet it can only see local network stuff. I suspect the Magic Jack is still trying to be the gateway but it has no Internet. Stop Magic Jack doing this and it should work.

Imac won't recognize camera


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Cordless logitech mice interference


Hi!
I think what happens there is that both mice is running on the same frequency. What you need to do is to restart the wireless of just one of the mice by pressing the connect button on the usb reciever and on the mouse. That way it would try a different frequency.
I hope this helps.

I have an iMac 17


Thanks for contacting FixYa Support.

I have repaired numerous iMac G5 17" models for a while now and because I have, I can tell you just from the symptoms you have described, this is potentially a power supply issue.

However, the iMac G5 17" have been known to have swollen capacitors, which can also ultimately impact the power management / performance of your iMac.

If you are able to, very carefully and don't touch them, you can look on the iMac's main logic board to see if you notice any swollen capacitors. If you are not sure what a capacitor looks like, they look like mini batteries connected to the board.

Should you do this and find that the capacitors are ok, then I would recommend for sure, that you look into replacing the power supply.

For your model of iMac 17" provided it is not an Intel-based iMac, the part number you will need to source is part# 661-3627. Below, I have also provided the most inexpensive price for this iMac power supply per this link:
AppleComponents.com

You may find even lower prices for this iMac 17" power supply, if you search online further, but this is one of the better online Apple components vendors. Therefore you should be able to see and compare the prices on this website, with some of the other vendors
advertising the same Apple power supply for the iMac 17".

I hope this helps. If you have any more questions on this subject, simply reply back to this post.

Best Regards,

Mac router compatability Zoom ADSL X6


Remember it takes two to tango, so the issue may just as well be in the iMac as in the Zoom X6... Regardless of that, I had the same problem (PC works fine, iMac and PC both get flaky when the iMac is powered up). Zoom tech support suggested trying RF channels 1, 6, or 11. The router was using channel 10, changing to channel 11 calmed things down. Zoom said there wasn't anything magic in those numbers, but their testing showed those channels worked best with the Apple products.
