 Post subject: Pismo Is no Booting up
PostPosted: Thu Jul 15, 2004 12:41 pm 
Hi folks my G3 pismo is no booting up at all. I mean it comes up for a minute or five and then goes dead. Now is no starting at all.
I thought the problem was the clock battery which I replaced with a new one just yesterday.
I even thought of starting it with the software restore cd in the drive but I cant even get it open.
I need help badly for I got tons of business related information in there.
Needing help in Los Angeles :(
Thanks

Elche

Not an expert, but here are some ideas. Hope others will correct me if I am wrong.
Start by making sure you have power. On many powerbooks the power jack can get old and loose, so that the battery will not be charging. And some models are defective there, while others are caused by user abuse. Is the power light always on?
The CD should work if you have power. Do you have a CD stuck inside? Does Pismo have a small hole to insert a straightened paperclip to cause disc ejection? (push gently)
Apple stores can check out the power issue, often for free. The fix I am told is usually not that expensive.

good luck

If your unit boots up and then just loses power, it is likely you have a loose connection in your Sound / AC (DC-IN) board. Otherwise, you are likely looking at a processor or logic board issue. The Sound / AC board can be found at our store at the link below:
