Hi everyone, I have a G3/400 Pismo and worked perfect in the past. Recently, it not starts up propely. When the power key is depressed, there is zero noise & power light (no chime), the caps lock key and num lock keys can light up when pressed. (Does it mean the CPU running?) The Funny thing is when I turn it off and slightly shake the Powerbook (up-side-down)and it works again.
This week, I have more serious problem> even shake can't help. So I start to reseat all memory and processor module and it will 80% work again. But once I turn off it goes back "unable to power up" and might have to reseat again. I realized that when I turn Pismo to sleep and move it around can make it hang up and black screen as well (It can awakes normally if I am not moving it to somewhere). I guess it mainly caused by the unstable circuit board/power slot). I've reset the power manager and replaced batterys and no joy.
ANy suggestion will be appreciated!!!!
