Solution: Replace power supply with a new one. Anything else might cause equipment damage, personal injury or death.

Any attempt for component level repair is not for the novice tinkerer. remember, opening the power supply might kill you.

My suggestion is to have the failed power supply module replaced with a brand new supply by a qualified repair technician.

My old g4 powerbook is dead, power supply seems to be alright , all battery lights come on on the back but nothing from pressing the power button, no noises , black screen....


HI Nick, I had a similar problem with my Titanium G4 Powerbook in the past. The batterry lights showed OK, and at first glance the original Apple transparent saucer shaped power adapter seemed to be working. But then I realized that the very thin conducter wires were broken where the flexible wire meets the connector plug. I cut into the plastic insulation and soldered the wires-a very tedious exercise I might add. This worked for a few weeks, and as I was at sea on a ship, it kept me going. But before long the same problem occurred-an apparent dead computer. I solved the problem by purchasing a 65 watt power adapter from PowerbookMedic. It was dirt cheap and I haven't had a single hiccup since, and that was 3 years ago. You can always see a Genius at an Apple store, if there is one close to your home. These people are amazingly helpful.

Unable to turn on the computer and power supply is OK because other devices are plugged into it. Tried procedure in apple manual which says to hold down power button and at same time hold down 4 buttons on...


The iMac G4 will refuse to turn on if the logic board battery is dead. Since this model Macintosh is now about eight years old, it's quite reasonable to suspect your battery is dead. Battery replacement is a relatively simple task for a certified technician, but unfortunately the battery in this model is not a user-replaceable part.

Power supply for mac g4 model AcBel api 9841 is  not swich on


I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "is not swich on" but I'm assuming your G4 will not turn on when you press the power button. You most likely have a bad power supply. If you want to make sure it is the power supply and are comfortable using a multimeter and following a few instructions then I've included a link below to an Apple knowledge base document explaining how to test a power supply.

How to test the power supply

WARNING: You will be working with live power. Take caution to follow the directions exactly and pay attention to where your placing your leads.

Hope this helps, don't forget to leave feedback if you found this helpful.

Imac g4 dead


Hello, The power supply is part of the motherboard in the iMac G4, so it's hard to change it. The repair would certainly cost more than the price of your iMac. You can try to take off the small battery, and reboot it to see if it changes. To open the mac lay it down, screen on the table (on a t-shirt). Unscrew the four screws (they wont come out, so just unscrew them. Pull the screws and take off the silver plate. Then you'll have access to the inside. Good luck

Powermac g4 will not turn


this is a common problem with G4 Quicksilver. Your power-supply is defect and has to be replaced. I have 4 G4s in my lab with the same symptom: a short flash of the power-button light, sometimes it turns on, but mostly the machine is dead.
