The g4 is a random cleaner. That means it just goes all different ways. If you reverse the hoses it will travel in a different pattern. Also, if you add or subtract one hose the pattern will change.

Move the direction of your return eyeballs. This will break the current in the pool thereby letting the cleaner go to other spots in the pool.

Geometric patterns appearing on my monitor which is run by an Apple G4 tower

You could be in a screensaver mode or your graphics card might be blown. Try accessing system preferences and turning off the screensaver and/or powers aving options. Your G4 could be in sleep mode. Try starting from Disc Warrior and clean up your opertating system. May help.

My bottom cleaner keeps getting stuck in a particular corner, how do I correct this?

since this cleaner works on the principal that if run long enough it will clean the entire pool area, there is no real way to control its movements. try removing one length of the hose. this will change the pattern of the cleaner. you can also change the flow rate of the water and if you are using a weight, change its position. try only one fix at a time so you know which is working

The bottom part comes loose after 3-4 hours of use, I have to screw it back on but it vibrates loose again what is the problem

I put several layers of Teflon tape on the threads in hope this will solve this problem. My barracuda G4 is several years old and just started doing this in 65 degree pool water. The cold could be causing some shrinkage So far it has helped.

My G4 barracuda's diaphram assembly has started to unwind from the cleaner head when it is operating. I have had this particular model for three years and have never had this problem.

Keep in mind that they are made of plastic and the threads change shape over the years.. Try applying several wraps of Teflon tape on the cassette threads and re tighten. This should keep from unwinding... Good luck and hope this helps you... If helpful, please take the time to write a comment and rate,,

My Barracuda G4 keeps turning over after a few minutes. I've adjusted the weight position, but it keeps happening.

You can check your water flow and make sure that it is not too high, but if your pool cleaners flipping over, there is probably a rather sever issue. Zodiac recommends that you contact your local warranty location if the cleaner is still under warranty.

Baracuda stopped working. it is not vibrating but

Could be a small rock or stick stuck in the diaprahm. If you pull the head you can look down both ends, use a ling stick or wire to clear or take the unit apart to find and clear this.

Stuck barracuda

It is probably not a problem with the shoes. These pool cleaners (and automatic pool cleaners in general) often get stuck on the main drain since the implementation on the new anti-entrapment drains. There is a ring that you can buy that goes on the drain. It is designed specifically for preventing pool cleaners from getting caught on the main drain.

Baracuda does not clean the entire pool. Seems to be stuck in a certain pattern

If you change the direction on your return eyeballs you will change the current in the pool that could be stopping the cleaner from having free roam. Set them give half an hour then ck it again. Keep this till you see the results you want.
