Question about Computers & Internet

I have an IMac G5 connected to my printer thru USB Hub . Normally when I would scan I would have the option to pick scan to computor . Now that option is removed. The only thing that has changed is we did install Airport wireless since. But we did not change the way the HP C5180 All in one was hooked up.Still hard wired

Hello...

I would suggest that you delete and reinstall the HP C5180 printer driver. It's possible that the driver has become corrupted and no longer provides the scan capabilities.

Hope this helps.

IMac deactivates USB port when I connect my Nikon P300


Try connecting the camera directly to the computer, without going through a hub. If that doesn't work, then buy a card reader.

Hi....my Samsung external HD G3 2tb won't turn on again after I erased all data on it. It is connected thru a hub to my iMac and taking off the power or USB and plugging back in won't do the t


It sounds like the drive has failed. The fact that you erased the drive just before it failed is coincidental.

Take the drive back and request a replacement under warranty. Also, demand that they destroy the drive in order to protect your data.

I have an iMac g5 and an eMachine. I have internet on the iMac and I need to get it to the Windows computer. I have TONS of cords and like 5 wifi roughters. I just need to know what to do inside...


just connect both computers to the same router/hub. if mac is working then windows should work as well. on a wired network in windows xp and beyond, there is no set-up required. if it is not working, then perhaps you using a crossover cable (meant to connect 2 computers directly) instead of a regular ethernet cable.

G5 keeps powering up for a few mins then switches off?


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

There are a few steps you can try to troubleshoot this issue:

Try a PMU Reset:
* Turn of your iMac if it is already turned off
* Disconnect all connections to the iMac except the power cord
* Now disconnect the power cord for approximately 20 seconds
* Reconnect just the power cable the keyboard, mouse and power cord, and then power your iMac G5 up.

* Check to see if the iMac boots up normally without power interruption.

* If the iMac G5 shuts off again, try these steps, another recommendation would be to remove all connections including the power cord, and lay the iMac G5 on soft cloth face down and with a philips screwdriver, remove the plate on the bottom of the iMac G5 where your RAM memory is located.
Before removing the RAM however, touch your hand on the metal boot to discharge any static current you carry for approximately 5 seconds.

Now remove each RAM card and then reseat (re-install) each card.

Restore the RAM card cover with your Philips screwdriver, reconnect your power cable, keyboard an
d mouse and turn on your iMac G5.

See if this second procedure helps if the first procedure does not work.

Let me know if this helps.

Regards

I hook up my harddrive and printer though Apple Time Capsule and my IMac it wirelessly connect with Time Capsule. Sometime I can't locate files from my harddrive. Please help


If you have the hard drive and printer connected simultaneously through a USB hub, it MUST be a powered USB hub (i.e., one with an AC adapter). Could this be your problem?

G5 dual processor keyboard freezes for 10 seconds or so


you might need to check the usb connections for the keyboard and mouse. and see if they are correctly connected, also to clean the connections with a q-tip from time to time. Also you might want to switch to another usb port. to narrow down the issue. Because if say you change to another port and it still persists, even when running a usb hub with external power, and even a external firewire hub with usb connection then the issue would be the com board for the usb and firewire. and hopefully the G5's usb, firewire ports are on a separate board that is then ribbon wired to the main board. because if its just ports ribboned to the main board you will need to get a new logic board. and that is not cheap. unless you still have your applecare. then just take it in to get replaced.

G5 has insomnia won't stay in the sleep mode


Usually this is caused by a USB printer unnecessarily clamoring for attention.
Disconnect ALL your USB devices and the problem ought to go away. Then connect them one by one to find out which the culprit is.
To zap PRAM, shut down the Mac, then push the start button and immediately hold down Command-Option-P-R until you hear the chimes pass by three times. But I don't think this will affect your problem.
