Please also see posting in General forum, subject line 'No video or mouse light'.

The category line keeps changing itself to something unrelated. Please fix this site so it works with Opera 9.64 (and also make the pages smaller - they take me 1-2 min to load via dialup.)

Crashed while adjusting volume while playing a DVD,
powered it off, pressing power button turned the button light green but no video, powered it off, powered it on again and it worked once but never again.

No external video, keyboard and mouse do not light.

Changed dead internal battery, checked RAM, unplugged modem, both drives. No visible scorch marks. How do we remove the DVD without disassembling the drive? Is this a power supply problem? Power button seems okay. Reset (external and internal on board) no help. Computer had worked for a few months after 9.1 > 9.2 > firmware update > 10.4 update.

Ancient Macintosh secret... paperclip.

Changed dead internal battery, checked RAM, unplugged modem, both drives. No visible scorch marks.

before you try all that, simply try command-option-P-R upon start-up, hold until the machine restarts and chimes again.
