    It's different for every model : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1431


    Once you reset the PMU, your system will boot back up normally, and you will get a message saying that your clock is messed up. You HAVE TO OOOO change it back to normal, or when you open a webrowser it will say every site is bad, and not let you open it. right maine, yeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    -Peace out girl scout

    I'm really not sure what you are talking about. Can you please give a clear and concise description of what is happening.

    So essentialy what you are saying is that your PowerBook G4's keyboard backlight isn't persistent? Does this happen while it is plugged in as well? Have you checked the energy-saver settings? Did you empty your caches? Booted into single-user mode and ran /sbin/fsck -fy? Reset the Power Manager?

    We need the info "maaan".:apple:

It was PURRRRTTY confusin I tell you whut :apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::):(

    Your posts make no sense at all. Please don't spew nonsense like the "Maine" thing; it'll be better for everyone.

    I had to edit smilies out of your quotes because it would let me post because there were too many.

    kkkk let me be the boring generic forum lurker brb,

    Ok guys, I have been having some problems with my Apple Powerbook G4 1.67ghz 1gb ram 15 inch model it is one of the older versions that has a keyboard blacklight, I got it because I'm going to school for computer system information's because I couldn't choose a real major. I also got a deal on this Powerbook on amazon and I would recommend it. Anyways I have been having some problems with my Powerbook G4 mac by apple's keyboard blacklight the other day the powerbook g4 keyboard backlight worked but today when I turned on my powerbook g4 the keyboard backlight it did not work. So I tried some different ways to fix it, and all of them did not work. I did find one way that worked for me at least which you can try and see if it works for you as well here is the link that I just mentioned http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1431 some of the methods in the link might work for you but some might so you should try them all until you get the backlight on your powerbook g4 to work again. k thx bai :apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::rolleyes::confused::confused::D:D:D:D:D:D
