Sorry that's what I meant

If it is fading away then the first thing to consider is the internal battery, its a small cheap part, easy to replace so is a good starter candidate, you can get them from Maplin ( its a CR2032 type)

Lithium Coin Cell Battery CR2032 : Coin Cells : Maplin Electronics

And here are the instructions, replace that part and tell us if that fixed it

Suggest they check out the Power Supply.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

finally got the MPro back from the sellers told me it was the power button but they could find one for a 2009 pro they put it in another case and had it on test and all ok when i get it back its doing the same thing again 2 red led's flash when the socket is switched on and nothing on the front at all no white led for the power button pressed the Diag button and the amber power led lights up same as before stripped the case out HDD and processor board and still nothing does any think it may be the psu because if it is i will just get one myself and aske the sellers for a reimbursement as i dont want to send it back to them again
has any one got any ideas whet i could try

thanks in advance

Well apart from suggested power supply, using a surge protector by any chance or tried it in a different power point? At any rate take it back as their repair sure sounds ****ey.

This is the type you need. This will give you some idea of price. Apple Dealers here charge around the $400 mark fitted.
