It appears that your power supply is good, the startup chime says that the system board has passed self diagnostics. If you have a black screen then the problem is either the video card or the screen itself. Unfortunately it is very difficult to tell which one. You might try to use an external monitor. If it works, then the problem is with the LCD.
To use an external monitor you need a Mini-DVI to VGA adapter, or a Mini-DVI to DVI adapter if your display will use a DVI connection. Either adapter is available at any Apple retailer. The connector on the back of your Imac is next to the ethernet connector, and should be the last in the row.

Black screen


Have you zapped the p-ram? Hold Apple, Option, P and R keys when you hear the chime. Wait for four more chimes and release.
Try "detect displays" from display preferences. In system preferences, displays, be sure brightness control is turned up.

When I turn on my mac g3 works but the screen stays


Some models of G3 iMac have an external display connector under the rear belly plate. Connect a monitor to this connector. If that monitor shows your desktop, your main CRT is blown. The cost of replacing a CRT in this model is almost certainly more than the residual value of the machine.

My laptop's screen stays black.


Can you see your screen as it should be when it is on by holding a flashlight on it.
If so then it is probably your backlight that is gone.
I am in the process of changing mine.

My ipod touch goes onto the apple loading screen at the begging of being charged, but it makes a circular loading thing under the apple, which jams, and the ipod wont turn off. It also makes the sync noise...


Hello.
Try doing a hard reset. Hold the home button and the lock button down at the same time until an apple pops up in the middle of a black screen. Keep holding it past where it asks "slide to shutdown" until it comes up. If that dont work, see if you can get the iPod to show up in the iTunes and do a restore on all the settings and then resync all your music and you should be good to go! Hope this helps!

IPod touch screen is black, but connects to iTunes and all.


Your screen is fu.k.d up, cause it shouldn't be black.  Take it back to the Apple store and they will exchange it out for you.  One caveat:  You will be denied an even exchange if they say your unit is water damaged.

When Disconnected from the Computer, it doesn't work period.


It sounds like it might be a battery issue. When it is hooked up the computer the USB is providing power to run the ipod and charge the battery. Check to see if the battery is good by testing it with a fluke meter if it is removable. And replace if bad. Also make sure you always release the device from the computer using the "safely remove hardware" function before disconnecting the ipod. This could also cause a problem.

Doesnt turn on.


This same thing happened to me. I was playing fantastic contraption and my ipod screen just went black and wouldnt turn back on. When I plugged it in to a charger, it made that charging noise, but wouldnt turn on. SOLUTION: try holding in the sleep/wake(power) button, and the home button at the same time for about 15 seconds or until you see the white apple logo. That worked for me, hope you get it fixed.

Ipod nano screen stays black


If your screen is black it may be frozen. If so, hold the menu button and the center button below it at the same time. If, this still doesnt work try connecting your iPod to a computer then disconnecting it. Also make sure the battery is charged.
