A possible fix for a Mac that won't power up
Authored by: Hanji on Apr 11, '05 01:05:18PM
I had a mac with the same problem once, tried resetting the PMU, swapping the battery, and all that, to no avail. I was just about to send it in, until I tried a reboot without any peripherals, and lo and behold, it turned out to be this thing, which I'd just plugged my iPod into (with the dock cable plugged into the back of it), which was somehow keeping the computer from powering up. Short or something, I'd guess, but it was completely reproducible, as I found out the hard way.

Most of the Time its is alway the PMU RESET Button. it always works (except for the one bondie, but that was the power supply) its very tiny and does the same thing as removing the clck battery, ust its not a likely to kill the battery.
