Hey all, I'm having a spot of bother with an eMac I wanted to nurse back to health. It was originally 1.25ghz with bad capacitors. I let a friend help me replace the caps which led to a butchered board which I'd say is very broken now. (Incidentally I did another one myself which works fine. ) Anywho, I bought a board I found on ebay going cheap, it's a CPU step up, the 1.42ghz board. The board is unused and came in the original Apple packaging and with ethernet ID sticker etc. I couldn't find anything beforehand to indicate that it wouldn't work and it's rare to find just a board on ebay now so I went for it. Physically, the boards are identical, it went in the emac without a problem. I lovingly assembled it all, fairly sure I've done it properly.. stuck to the Apple service source throughout, both ways. I plug it in and press the power button and the CRT makes the usual noise and sometimes the fan will whir up for a moment then it goes completely dead. It never gets far enough for an image to appear on the display. It seems like a power issue to me, I have tried turning it on with the super drive disconnected but it did the same. I've also tried resetting the PMU to no luck. Anyone got any ideas to help? Thanksss, Ollie.
