Dear Macheads, Today I got 2 free iMac G3's. A Ruby 450mhz and a Blueberry 400mhz, both from around the year 2000. The previous owner used the machines and then stored them in the attic, then in working order, for about 3 years now. He is moving so he decided to sell them. Upon inspection both machines arent powering on anymore so he gave them to me free of charge. Both machines make a popping sound and you can hear the CRT tube firing up but then nothing happens. No chime, no grey, nothing at all. My working G3 makes this popping sound but then switches on the harddrive and shows the grey splash screen etc. To try and get both machines working I used a working power cable and power socket and Apple's Service Source iMac G3 manual for troubleshooting. Step 1: Swap ram around with a working G3. Step 2: Was to test the logic board for trickle voltage. It had trickle voltage. Step 3: Testing DCO on the logic board. The DCO voltage was correct. Step 4: Check the battery, replaced it with a working one. Reset the PMU. To me this says that on both machines the PAV is working, if im not mistaking that is, because the voltages are correct on plugged in Idle state. What I havent done yet is testing the Power/Analog board fuse. Could it still be that the PAV board is fried? To me it sound unlikely that in one household 2 macs die of a broken PAV. If anyone has suggestion of what else to try please let me know For now im using the 2 macs, with a sheet of glass on top, as a coffeetable but it would be nice If I can get both machines working again.
