I just turned on my G4 17" 800mhz iMac and there was no gong. I thought it was just turned down. So I opened iTunes and cranked the sucker 2 notches past 10 and still nothing!

Any ideas? It was working the last time I used it!

pretty sure the imac g4 does not have an internal speaker.. it had two seperate powered speakers that were like glass globes sort of...

these..

Actually it does have one internal speaker. I opened it and found a bent pin on a parallel plug. FIXED!

I guess this is the one: http://www.welovemacs.com/9224678r.html

How is the sound quality on the internal speaker - I am considering the 17" iMac g4 for a future project.

it's as good as an old transistor radio.
