Hey i Have an imac g3. the specs are 233MHz G3 with 32 MB of ram, 4 GB HDD, and original revision A model. Now the problem i have with it is that it doesnt start up. i got it from my brothers school, cause they were trashing it, and so i picked it up. i got home and pluged the keyboard, mouse, powercable, etc, and so excited of getting my first mac! i pressed the power button.... and ........nothing. so i thought: crap its dead probably. looked online, looking for a solution, and checked youtube, mac roumers and google searches. and the few solutions i got was: dead power supply and need new 1/2 AA 3.6 Volts battery. and also fly-back transformer, which to me is in the power supply/ display issue. Also i know that their is some power that is going to the imac. i know this because my friends imac g3 (333MHz) does a faint squeek noise the second you plug the power cord in the machine, and his works. mine also does this! Does any body have any solutions for this iMac G3? I would really like to get it working again, but for now it sits on my desk, as a larger paper weight, and a display. thanks!
