iMac G3 Graphite Loses Time -- I've Replaced Battery, Reset PRAM
I'm trying to resurrect a neglected iMac G3 Graphite (runs at 600MHz). It's still running OS X 9.2, which I plan to replace with OS X once I resolves the iMac's issues. Here's the main one:
Every time iMac is unplugged, it loses the date and time and sets it to 1/1/1901 at noon.
- SWITCH BATTERY
I tried that, using two batteries I know work. Same problem.
- RESET PRAM
- I did that, using COMMAND-OPTION-P-R at startup. The "dong" goes off twice, indicating successful reset, and yet still problem exists.
I've also tried full combination -- insert new battery, and at first boot up with new battery, immediately reset PRAM. Then set the clock. Shutdown. Take off power. Plug back in. And there it is -- forgot the date and time.
I suppose this is something that could be lived with, but I'd like to find a solution.
