By pressing and holding down the power key for about ten seconds on the front of the G5 you can perform a hard shutdown although you will have lost any changes on any open documents. Once the machine has shutdown you can then restart per normal. Hope this helps.

I have an iMac G5, system 10.4, that gives me a white screen with the apple logo and lots of fan noise when I try to boot up. What's going on?


It is having difficulty with the system folder, try starting with the left hand shift key held down, if not boot from CD, select language as if you are going to do an install, on the next screen the top menu has a utilities folder, in this select disc utlility, select your hard drive and then select repair, let this work and if OK or repaired (if it says it cannot repair then you need a repair utlity like DiskWarrior) then repair permissions, this can take a while with a big HD, then in utilities select start up disk and select your HD and restart.

Stuck dvd tray


There are many ways to eject a DVD. Try this.

Shut down the computer (complete power off, not restart)
Hold down the left button (Apple mouse?)
Push the power button
Keep holding the mouse button down until it either ejects or the grey pinwheel appears. (It's not an instant process)

Usually, eject/F12 will open the drive up. If that does not work try.
Open terminal and use the command "drutil tray eject"

You can also try command-option O + F and type"eject cd"
If none of this works your drive may be bad or the power cord is loose. You will need to open it up or seek professional service.

G5 failing to startup


Two things.  1. Boot from the original install disk and choose your language. Don't install the software, look up to the menu and find disk utility. You will run disk utility on your mac from the CD. You boot to the CD by holding down the "C" button during startup. 
2. If you had the insight to set up an emergency user, see if the problem occurs on both users. Sounds like it happens right off, so I think solution 1 is best. Once you get things running, set up another user. I call the account Emergency and use Emergency as the password. This is used for, you guessed it, emergencies. What this does is isolate the problem to the user or the computer. 
Apple has a great knowledge base to search for solutions as well. Good luck.

Epson RX650 with a G5 Mac. Printing beautifully,now pgs are blank


It definately sounds like blocked print heads, try head cleaning 4 or 5 times, leave overnight and try another 4 or 5 times the next day. This usually works, if not you will need to try something a little bit stronger. Try this link:

Blocked print heads are more far more common if you are using non-genuine Epson inks. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Disk Drive spits out brand new DVD+R DL cds


The drive in the G5 may not support DL discs. Open the system profiler (From the apple menu, select 'About This Mac' then select 'More Info'). Click on 'Disc Burning' in the left hand column. You will now get the details about the disc drive including which discs are supported.

Nobody is using your computer, so you don't have to worry about that. To change your computer back to normal hold down the Control, Option/Alt, Command, and "8" keys. This will change your desktop back to its normal state

ATI X800 XT Mac Edition and Mac G5 boot troubleshooting


I have the same card and many of the same issues.  I got an RMA number and had to contact ATI after "Clear Business Days" to get a status report.  Having finally gotten a response, I find out that it will be 10 to 12 WEEKS before the card comes back.
Knowing what I know now, I would not purchase this card again.

Blue power light is flashing red and the hard drive won't mount


Hi Vieve, The manual says nothing about flashing red and blue nor could I find anything of any real substance. Basically this thing is a box containing an IDE hard drive and some electronics that interfaces the drive with firewire, power distribution and a few other odds and ends. I suspect the board that contains the electronics may be damaged, however, its entirely possible that this may be some undocumented error that can be reset. I would try calling the vendors tech support, it?s at least worth a shot. If getting your data off is the concern it might be worth your time to buy another enclosure, install your drive and plug it into your Mac. There is a good chance your data is recoverable. Sorry I couldn?t get you a more definitive answer.
