G4 MDD power supply repair.

I have about six G4 MDD mac from the G4 1.25 to the dual 1.4 versions.I have noticed that four of them have developed the problem of not turning on and the power button just giving a light when pressed ~ so not completely dead ~ however I have looked for solutions to the problem and gather that they probably suffer from power supply failure.I would like to know if anyone has ever successfully repaired a power supply from one of these machines and if so can they identify the components that fail…See More

Whilst I have been able to buy 100 minute blank CD's I have not been able to use them.

I tried a long time ago using various versions of Toast4 Toast 5 Toast 6 and probably some of the newer versions.

I think I have a copy of Toast 8  9 & 10  

I suffer from MS so understanding this technology stuff is quite hard for me.

I found most people want me…

Hi Stella,

Forgive me if I don't give you my email address but it's because I am slightly disabled due to Multiple Sclerosis.

I have to be aware that it's a predatory world out there.

I was not aware of me actually writing a profile about myself ? 

Perhaps you can tell me what it was I wrote that caught your interest ?

Regards Jeremy
