How do I fix my P.M. G3 B&W to turn-on?

I have a Power Macintosh G3 Blue and White and it used to turn-on. I let my 3 year old daughter use it. I guess she turn it on/off too many times repeatedly and suddenly stopped turning on. How can I fix it to turn it on again?

Try unplugging everything, press the power button for ten seconds, replug it and try to start. Replace the 3.6 volt 1/2 AA PRAM battery. Let us know your results please.

I was able to turn-on again the computer after I followed all your steps. I didn't have to change the battery. Thanks to your help my four year old daughter is using again the computer!



If you start loosing the correct date and time, change the battery.
