@douglas - You can pull back the keyboard and make sure the top case is plugged in. If you have an original Apple power adapter with a status light ring, that can give you some information. If it is red, there may be a power issue.

@JordiNkc - the flashing globe is typically for trying to boot from a network drive. You can hold down Option to view a list of bootable media, but most likely your hard drive has no operating system. You can also try to reset the PRAM to see if that will fix it. As far as the A1005, some came with CDROMs, some DVDROMs, and some Combo Drives. It was an option during purchase.

Also have iBook Model A1005 that kicks back out my OSX Tiger 10.4 DVD when trying to install. Is that because its a DVD and this model only takes CD?

I have an ibook G4 Model #A1133 that has a flashing globe. Any ideas on what that could mean?

@Jamie - it sounds like the inverter cable. This model had a big problem with the hinges damaging the inverter cable and causing it to short out. It unfortunately is a fairly involved repair.
