That's a great point. Your suggestion reminds of a powerbook G3,
model M4753 (300Mz) that I bought, it too was dead. I simply took it apart,
everything upon visual inspection checked out. I went as far as removing
the CPU daughter card and putting it all back together again and I had a
lovely chime. It works like a charm and set me back about the equivalent of
10 bucks.

At the moment, I believe my 2400 suffers from GLOT (Glowing Light of Death)
mode. I will take apart the 2400 again and carefully check the CPU card. I
did not detach the CPU nor the power board. What little I could visually
see of the power board looked fine, capacitors and the like.

I also took some photos of the process but two things bothered me about my
photo logs.
1) This 2400 was obviously taken apart in the past and was not put back
together correctly, cables left detached, screws missing and perhaps screws
no in their right places. This leave me how I accurate I might be able to
present things on my site.
2) I need to be much more methodical about the process.

Taking it apart again to go through the CPU daughter card will encourage me
to take new photos and better document a visual process.

Thanks for your input.

…from my experience with the Pismo G3 the CPU card can be difficult to seat
