I accidentally left my Emac 1.25GHz on for a few days and when I returned, I couldn't get it to return from sleep mode. So I powered it down with the power button and when I turned it on again, the front power light came on, I heard the familiar music chord and then nothing, no image on the monitor or anything. Tried unplugging all cables from it, including USB and power, waiting for 15-20 minutes, no luck. Had a USB Zip drive plugged directly into a USB port if that makes any difference. Running Panther 10.3.9 with all the latest updates. DSL Internet connection accessed through a recently installed Airport Extreme card. The Emac was purchased new in November of 2004.

I'll assume, the worst, did the motherboard go bad? Or possibly the hard drive or monitor? I don't hear any activity/noise coming from inside the computer after that initial music chord, so I'm guessing it may be the motherboard or hard drive.

Sure hope it's not a hardware problem, any ideas/thoughts/remedies would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Got an emac with similar problem. Was looking for an answer here.
I checked the capacitors that are near the memory. They are OK.
Have the K on top, no swelling or leaking.
This emac does not wake up from sleep. Will restart after unplugging and starting.
