    Power cable
    I painted my emac green and I can't get the power cable in properly to make it power on. What is the power cable sequence (Green, Red, Black, empty) to make it turn on?
    Yes my name is Jaguar.
    No, it is not a joke.
    I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

    Screw it. I just took the cable out. I'm not dealing with it since I never shut this thing off anyways. If you guys want to see what a green eMac looks like, let me know . I have a couple of pics of it.

    You did what!!? How could you?

    But the eMac has its own type of plug, with a flange on it, a bit like a baby's suck dummy. You can get away with an ordinary computer power cable.

    Are you talking internal or external? I thought the international power wire coloring was Brown (power), Blue (neutral) and Green (earth); otherwise Red (power), Black (neutral) and Green (earth).

    So, show us what a green eMac looks like.

    BTW, my Mac tech says "turn your eMac off if it's going to be idle for more than 2 hours, helps to preserve those capacitors." [apparently they bulge and leak more in high(er) temps].
