    Fix for Emac starting up issue which stucks on Apple logo

    Just got a used Emac from one of my known friend and when I try to startup it just shows up till the Apple logo screen and doesn’t boot up at all. Why is that? WHat is the problem with it now? What should I do to fix the problem and make it work? If it doesn’t work I don’t see any use after buying it.

    There are many reasons for your Emac getting failed to start, you just need follow the steps given below to make sure it will work fine without any issues,

    -> Just power down your Emac and hold down the shift key during the bootup time to check fi it’s start up.
    -> There can be possibility that your PRAM battery has be worn out as it can just come up only for 4 years and if it is so try replacing your PRAM battery first and then try to start up again.
    -> Try booting up in Single User mode by pressing the Command key + s when booting up your Emac and type in /sbin/fsck -fy and just repeat the steps till it says no errors to be fixed.
    -> If that didn’t help then try booting up into the Open Firmware mode by pressing the Command key + Option + o + f when bootup and type in the below commands.
    reset -nvram
    set-defauls
    reset-all
    -> Last thing to try is to do a PRAM reset by pressing the Command key + Option + p + r.
    Hope that should have helped, if you are still having issues then it looks like a problem with the Emac hardware which can be cross checked by reaching your nearest Apple Support centre.

    Hi......................,

    Already moderator had told you all about the reason.
    I would just like to add something new .

    Some eMacs with 1G and 1.25G processors and USB 2.0 logic boards are plagued with a problem that manifests itself as leaking capacitors. Before going much farther, check your serial number against this list of ranges in which the problem could exist:

    • G8412xxxxxx- G8520xxxxxx
    • YM412xxxxxx - YM520xxxxxx
    • VM440xxxxxx - VM516xxxxxx
