Insert your Mac OS disk and attempt a restart with the C key held down. It may be that your eMac isn't recognizing it's hardrive...
You can launch disk utilties off the menu of the OS disk and try to remount your hardrive on your emac...
See if this gets it back.

I have a emac powerpc G4 i cant find how to open cd player no eject button


If you hold down the mouse button, and then turn on the eMac, the drive will pop out, and you can put in a CD. Also, you can hold the F12 button to eject. Even if there isn't a dedicated Eject key on the keyboard, you can eject this way.

I recently purchase a emac for my daughter, it's


Hi, unfortunately not every accessory that you can use for windows based pc's is good for Mac platform. This is why when you click on Autorun.exe the Mac won't install anything and won't work.
You should check if the device you want to use is Mac compatible. If you don't have the original package you should go to producers website and search for your device compatibility list.
If your device is not designed for Mac paltform you have to buy another device Mac compatible.
Let us know if you solved your problem

What do I do if every time i turn my emac on there is only a flashing file in the center of the screen and no mouse courser


I have a possible solution, but it would be helpful to know what operating system you have on your eMac. Mac OS X is the Mac operating system. Do you have Mac OS X 10.2, 10.3, or 10.4, for example.
Solution:Do you have your system discs for your eMac or an Mac OS X installation disc? You'll need it to fix the problem. Use the newest disc you have.
WARNING: There is a _slight_ risk of loss of your data (pictures, documents, etc.) when reinstalling your operating system. Backing up your precious photos and other documents is critical!

1. If the eMac is on, hold down the power button until it turns off. 2. Turn the eMac while holding down the mouse button. 3. When the CD/DVD drive opens, put the system disc in (use disc #1 if you have more than one disc). 4. Turn the machine off again by holding down the power button. 5. Turn the machine on while holding down the C key on the keyboard to boot from CD (or DVD). 6. Wait until the eMac boots from your system disc. 7. You should see the install screen. There should be an Options button. Click the Options button. 8. One of the choices will be to do an "Archive and Install". Go ahead and do an "Archive and Install", which will reinstall the operating system but leave your photos and other files. See cautions above. **Do _NOT_ click the option to ERASE the hard drive** or you'll lose all your photos, etc. 9. Once it's all done (expect it to take an hour or more), you should be able to use your computer normally.
Good luck. I hope this is understandable. If you need more help, please post again. *Please rate me if this helped.* Thanks!

After starting my emac a screen comes up asking me to log in above it says darwin/bsd (user-s-emac-2.local) (console)


Sounds like some of your system files may have been corrupted. Restart your computer with you OS disc, and when it launches, go to the top menu and look for "Disk Utilitiy". Launch and see if you can repair the files that way. If not you may have to reinstall the system software. If so, choose the option that won't erase your info on your drive.
Last resort is to wipe the drive clean and reinstall the OS fresh, but this will erase everything.
Before erasing everything, if you have access to a second mac, you can connect the emac to the other mac via a firewire cable, turn on your emac in hard drive mode by starting it while holding down the "T" key. You'll get a firewire icon on the screen. Then turn on the second mac... you can off load any files to the second mac and then reinstall the OS via the OS discs.
Best of success.

MAC G4 won't boot - Blue screen appears


Hi Sorry to hear you are having troubles,You will need a firewire 400 cableOK, first thing you must do is reboot the eMac in TARGET mode, this means it will be recognized as an external disk. To get the eMac in TARGET mode, you must be sure the eMac is turned OFF and has a functioning keyboard connected.Power on the eMac and very very rapidly press the ( T ) key on the keyboard, be sure the caps lock button is not pressed. If all goes well, you will see the firewire logo appear larger than life on the screen.( If you are unable to get into TARGET mode, it is highly probable that the mother board of the internal hard drive is damaged and preventing the eMac from entering TARGET mode, sorry, that's the end of the line..)Once you enter TARGET mode on the eMac, connect the firewire cable to your G4 PowerBook, you can do this either while it is running or when it is off and then turn it on.
You should see the volume of your eMac internal hard drive appear on the PowerBook desktop...sometimes you need to open Disk Utilities and repair or mount the drive manually.If this all works well, copy the required files directly to your PowerBook...After that, power off both machines, disconnect them and reboot the eMac using a CD or DVD to reformat and reinstall a new system.

Chim when driving


Is the door ajar light on? Or is the fasten seatbelts light on? If the door is ajar light is on try removing the switch from the door pillar (start with drivers side first because it will have the most wear). Sometimes there's a rubber cover you pull back and they're usually held on with one or two screws, unhook the wire connector and check if the light went out. If it did buy a new or used replacement switch.
