Visit the System Preferences / Sound panel, in the Input section, and make sure the internal mike is chosen for the sound input function. If you have another choice, change it away from the mike, then change it back. If this doesn't fix your problem, you may need a hardware repair.

My G4 iBook screen goes dark shortly after I power-up, even If I hit the F2 key, the screen remains dark.


Hi,
Got the same problem with my ibook G4.
I have research on how to fix it, and found out that most model of G4 has the same problem.
I soon found out the main problem and the solution, it would require some skill in soldering and dis assembling the whole laptop.
Go to this site and hope it will help you just it like it helps me a lot!

I can't activate my internal mic, and am not certain if I have one or not,


your product specs can be found here

below under TECHNICAL SPECS in audio you can see that you system is supposed to come with a built in mic.

go into system preferences, (sound panel in the OS settings, select input device, input levels), see if you get any feed back from input level, see it's also muted or turned all the way down and adjust as needed
.
if no feedback seen on input level check if the mic holes have any dust in them, clear the dust as needed.

do you remember ever using your mic? where do you need the mic to be activated, see if there's any configuration that you need to do under tools or options for that application

has your computer ever being disassambled?, any repairs? that may have cause the mic to be disconnected internally (if you don't see any input level feed back when talking close to the mic openings and if it's not muted)?

there's a chance that there's a hardware problem, I've heard about wiring wear out causing mic to stop functioning,

a last thing you want to try is a type of hard reset (see here), this is a last resort. if this does not work, it's fair to assume that you have a hardware problem and if there's no warranty on the ibook you may want to just simply get a usb handset (mic and head piece) for your mic needs..

Internal microphone not working


In the system preferences there should be a tab for input and, if you don't already have a USB headset or other external mic, then the internal mic should already be selected. You should be able to see in real time what the mic is receiving by talking. There is an input level bar that fluctuates. If this does not show anything, then you probably do have a problem with your mic. do this first though before checking out skype.

Here's an example

Cant load os


Hi Tajjek,

Try booitng the Mac from the installation disc which was shipped with the machine,make sure to use the right disc( which was shipped with the machine). If the unit does not boots to the OS disc,then remove the internal hard drive and power on the machine if you get flashing question mark after start up boot chimme then it is issue with the internal hard drive. Please get backt to me with your observation if issue persists.
