i have this orignal iMac (teal colour) and when i unplug the monitor cable from the motherboard, it doesnt turn on... how can i turn the moniter while the video cord is not plug in?
the reason for this is that my monitor on the G3 is bad, so the only other monitor i have is the one built into the iMac. but when i plug the moniter cable into the G3 it doesnt turn on.
the iMac turns on, i hear the hard drive working, and i hear the mac chime. but with the video cord unpluged the moniter doesnt turn on. I've concluded that the moniter does get power, but i need to somehow switch it on, while its video cord is not plug into the imac motherboard
So has anyone successfully done this before?
