  1. Hi, I just bought a slightly parted out imac g4 online. It was missing a PSU, drive cage and heatsink. I have aquired these items, but now I need the screws to mount them. I have sourced most of them, but I still need the long ones which are used to mount the dome to the bottom case, and the ones used to mount the logic board. I was wondering if anyone could give me the sizes of these screws. Macman0512
  2. Hello everyone! I recently got an iMac G3 cheaply from a thrift store missing the hard drive and ram, but it powered on and gave the beep signal for no ram, so I bought it. I got a stick of ram from a friend, installed a hard drive, and it even powered on to the blinking question mark. However, after returning to the computer after burning an install disc for the OS, it no longer would turn on. I will attach a video of what it does. https://streamable.com/pnoq2 In case this does not load, the speakers click a few times, and the CRT makes noise that sounds
  3. I scored a Strawberry iMac yesterday at Goodwill Computer in Austin. It's missing the port cover, but no big deal. I also picked up a G3 keyboard to go with it. It passes POST and boots to a folder with a question mark on it. The guy at the store said they'd tried to install something on it but couldn't, so I'm unsure if A)They didn't know what they were doing, or B), the CD drive is kaput. I only have an OS 8 cd--I tried to boot it with that CD and I thought I could hear/feel the drive spinning, but it wouldn't boot. However, I know these shipped with 8.5.1, so maybe my 8.0
  4. I am borrowing an iMac G3 with Mac OS 9.1 and Quicktime Player Version 5.0.2 for a film. I need the computer to play a video file that I created in the film. When I burn a CD with the video file on it, the G3 will show the JPEG image files on the CD, but the video files don't show up at all! I've tried several different formats/codecs like MOV, MP4, h264, and AVI, but none of them show up at all. I've also tried several other unsuccessful methods of transferring the video file to the G3. I can't get a flash drive to mount even when formatting it to several different formats, I can'
  5. I am unable to power up my iMac G3. I opened up the case and pressed the CUDA button and it powers up. However every time I switch the mains to off I have to redo it again. Is something faulty? I had the PRAM battery removed by the way.
  6. Hello, So back in the day I used to see ads for the fruit color iMac G3s and I always wanted one, but couldn't have one. Fast forward to today and I have a small collection of old Macs. I already have three G3 machines (Powerbook G3 Main Street, PDQ, and an Icebook), yet I still desire a fruit color iMac. The reason is really just aesthetics and nostalgia. I know the specs won't be any better than the other G3s I have (correct me if I'm wrong). I mainly collect Mac laptops due to space concerns, though I could squeeze in another desktop/compact if I wanted to. I like that the
  7. Hi all, I'm new here and I'm fairly new to Macs, so I apologize for any things I might not say or do correctly in advance! I also apologize for asking you all this newbie tech support question haha. I bought this barely used iMac G3 from someone on EBay a while back, and it came with OS 9.2.2. I am trying to install OS 10.3 on it. It has 128 MB RAM, 10 GB storage and is an grape slot-loading model. I came across Panther full install 3 disk CDs from a friend but they were copied disks of the originals so there wasn't any labels or information on the disks. When I started the installation fro
  8. Hi, I recently bought two “rev. A” iMacs (I noticed they had the Rage II chip) that came with the same Mezzanine card installed. Since I haven't made a thorough disassembly of these tray-loading iMacs, I haven’t had a careful look at the card they have brought. I’m hoping some of you guys recognise the card by the ports layout.
  9. While trying to get my iMac G3 online, I came across an issue. (maybe several) I could not get the Airport card to recognize my wifi. I tried connecting to my laptop through an Ethernet cable so I could share the internet, but that wouldn't work. I painstakingly made a network on my laptop to try and get my iMac to connect. However, the network would only let (or so it seemed) Windows computers join. Oops. So I installed Wine on the iMac, but I wasn't using the right version, so it didn't work. Double oops. I continued to try different settings, but the "encryption method" wasn't correct. Trip
  10. Little by little I’m becoming more attached to these little macs. They are the offspring of the Classic Macs and flag Apple’s rebirth from the ashes. I’ve been focusing mainly in getting a SE/30 or Colour Classic and in the process I have given little attention to these inconspicuous machines. But by the fifth complete tear-down and restoration I can assure you they are a resilient bunch and gorgeous looking machines, bridging our internet age to the analogue ways.
  11. I recently got an iMac G3 Blue dalmatian off eBay. So I thought "Hey, lets post the pics in a completely different area of the 68kmla!" And here they are.

    iMac G3.

    The Blue Dalmatian iMac G3 is rare, right? Do you think it's worth $215.00? Although it also came with the black Pro keyboard and black Pro mouse. I don't have them yet. <-- sorta looks like an iMac I have yet to find if the thing works or not. I will be posting pictures of the machine or auction. (I'm so excited!!! )
  13. Hi, Im trying to connect an iMac G3 with OS9 and a Classic with a Dayna SCSI / Ethernet breakout box. They are connected via a Netgear Prosafe GS105. The iMac has ethernet thats working fine - I can see the internet no problems. Its actually quite a useable machine. I don't really have a way of checking the Classic is connected. It does have all the correct connection software installed like the Dyna drivers for Ethernet. Im looking in Appleshare to try and see the iMac, but to no avail. Likewise I checked the iMac to see the Classic but also no joy. Ive read lots of the gu

  15. Hi everyone! When I was younger the main computer in my family was a tray loading Bondi iMac running 8.6. It was used for hours each day for at least ten years (that's a conservative guess, it was very probably longer). A couple years ago it started having a minor issue. The power button needed to be pressed two or three times to get it to boot. Other than that everything was working great. One morning I got up and heard from a sad family member that the iMac wouldn't start up at all. No chime, no lights... nothing. It's currently sitting in my cold, lonely closet, and after reading
  16. I've got an iMac G4/800 Flat Panel. It's the original "high end" launch model (everymac.com info page), that boots into both OS X 10.1+ and OS 9. I want to max out the RAM, upgrade the hard drive and put in a different DVD reader. My plan with this computer is to create an Mac OS museum on the machine that will boot OS 9 and OS X 10.1-10.5, plus OS 1.0 through possibly 8.x via emulation. I know Apple initially shipped these with PC100 and then later revised the spec to call for PC133. Does anyone know if that's because a bus speed issue, or is it because there was RAM floating around t
