    not turning on.
    Hi there,

    I have a Emac that i havent used in about a year and a half or so and i cant turn it on, i press the power button and all i get is the fan spinning for about a second and two clicking sounds.

    any ideas what it might be?

    Thanks for your help

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 3.3GHz, 512GB Flash, 16GB memory, OS X.11.4.
    Possibly PRAM battery flat, CUDA reset required or dead HDD.

    Have a look at this link and keep us posted:-

    Where can you get PRAM batteries from?

    Well you do not give your location, but stores such as Radio Shack etc carry them. Down Under **** Smith is the best option.

    Now aint that amazing. **** Smith is a licensed franchise electrical store and Richard won't be happy with that **** business!

    Mods that really is a case of over censoring.

    Like Harry said...not sure where you are located...but here's a source if it works for you:

    3.6v Newer Technology Lithium 1/2 AA PRAM Com... (3.6VPRAM) at OWC

    It doesn't specifically say for eMac's...but considering the "vintage" of the other Mac's this battery is compatible with...it should work with an eMac.

    Good luck,
