Hello, I wish I found this forum 2 years ago, but here I am today. I had a PowerBook G4 given to me several years ago and it worked fine, until one day I couldn't wake it up from sleep. Removing the battery and putting it back in did nothing, so did plugging it in and starting it without battery. One thing that caught my attention was the fact that when tried to turn on, it made a weird pew sound and it happened every time I tried starting it after disconnecting any power source. The sound did not come from any medium like the DVD drive or HDD, but from the speakers(startup chime?).
(I originally ended up writing this as an update post to my IIvx thread, but I decided that this required its own thread. I'm taking on some repairs to new client machines, so I'll be able to afford proper caps for the IIvx soon.) So my friend that buys and sells machines and scrapmetal, the one that gave me the IIvx, calls me up two days ago. He says he has something he thinks I'll find interesting. Pull up, his car is half open and there's boxes in the back seat. The boxes are heavy and plain-looking. plop it down in the garage, and... iBooks! iBook G4's of all walks of life
