Does not start, flashing light on startup button
My Macintosh G5 desktop suddenly will not start. When I press the start button, the start button just flashes a white light.
I made a mistake in the description . . . sorry about that.
I have a Power Mac G5, Model No. A1047.
I would appreciate any help in solving this.
The last 3 letters are: QPP
With the side cover off, when I press the start button, the only light that lights up is a red flashing light. It makes a whirring sound. (Best that I can describe).
The new battery should be here in 2 days, will let you know how it turns out.
Thanks so much!
I put the new battery in and the red light inside lights up. The fans and cooling system, (I think that’s what it is), make the usual sound, not the bad sound as before, but now a more normal sound. The startup sound did not come on. After holding the start button down for about 10 seconds, as requested, there was a sound like a horn going off. I stopped and pulled the plug.
Any help would be appreciated!
