The on and off switch needs to really be pushed hard to get the computer to turn on. It can take many trys to get it running. Can I get a replacement switch and can I do it myself?

Its usually just a little coil spring on a post behind the button.
Take the sides off the case, you should be able to see the clips needed to release the case front.
You may just be able to stretch the spring.
If this is not the problem there maybe something snapped

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component.

unfortunatly it is either the motor or the drum bearings in the machine. if it is really hard to push i would suggest looking at all the bearings the drum rides on otherwise it is probably the motor that is getting weak.

Computer turn on and Restart Problem.


Are you pushing on the hard disk?

22065a6.jpg
this is a hard disk, are you pushing on the hard disc or on the case of the computer? if your pushing on the case of the computer then most likely the power or reset switch is loose or broken.

do you get a blue screen or what happens? are you really pushing on the hard disk? if your really pushing on the hard disc I would suggest to replace the hard disc to one that doesn't need to be pushed and works properly,

PowerPC G4 switch-on problem


Hi Branko
Rather than forking money out for a battery. There are a couple of things I really need to know first. Have you changed anything on the machine recently? What OS are you running. How much memory (ram) Size of hard drive.

As you are running quite an old mac these details are important to identify the problem.

Philps LCD Monitor Won't turn on Straight away


That is definitely a problem with the monitor...if its under warranty have it replaced...if not...start looking for a replacement it hardly ever is worth it to have them repaired (shipping, parts, labor is usually a little less than a new monitor). Sorry
