 Post subject: iBook won't start-no chime (3 beeps & blinking sleep lig
PostPosted: Fri Aug 08, 2003 6:44 pm 
I put my iBook Blueberry to sleep last night and closed the lid.

Opened it up this morning and sleep light stopped blinking but nothing else (no HD sound and the display did not light at all).

Tried all the restart tricks (even the paper clip into the reset switch -held down for 30 secs and waited 30 secs).

Now all I get when I try to power it on (by pressing the power button) is a beep....beep....beep (same pitch as when you upgrade the ROM) then the sleep light blinks.

I removed the RAM - no change. I replaced the RAM - no change.

Anyone have any tips or tricks???

I'm capable of taking it apart and replacing the logic board, but I'm really hoping not to have to go thru all that - I sure would appreciate any help.

I have NOT added any hardward or software recently, just used the ibook and put it to sleep like I usually do every day :-(

The 3 beep error is typically a ram error. If you've replaced your ram though then you're looking at a logic board failure.
