PowerPC :: Powerbook G4 17" Bluetooth Modem Is Not Working?

Jun 13, 2009

I have been using my phone as a bluetooth modem on my PB for quite some time now, but today I get an error saying it is unavailable. But it is a different message than when my bluetooth on phone is off. I have a HTC Touch Pro, Alltel (CDMA). The reason I use bluetooth is because I don't know how to use USB tethering (which would be nice as bt makes my phone quite hot). Anyways, If anyone can help with either problem, it will be GREATLY appreciated. I am currently posting this on my phone, as I have a 10hr car ride and no comp.

PowerPC :: Powerbook With Bluetooth Mighty Mouse Options?

Aug 3, 2008

I have a 12" PowerBook G4 (the very last revision in 2006) and I've never had issues with the bluetooth before (although I've only ever used it to move a few pictures from my phone to my laptop occasionally). This week, I bought a wireless mighty mouse and connected it no problem. Yesterday was the first day I used it and it worked like a champ all day. Today, I was using it and in the middle of moving it around, it just stopped responding. My trackpad still works fine, but the cursor stops moving with the mouse, the clicker doesn't work, etc. When I turn the mouse off for a minute and then turn it back on, it works for a few minutes and then quits again. The first thing I tried was to swap batteries, but that didn't help. Neither did a restart.

PowerPC :: Post Damaged But Working Powerbook

Feb 19, 2009

just wanted to see how these machines handle abuse. I don't plan on abusing mine, but I am thinking about giving my brother one, and he is careful, but sometimes slips. I know the aluminum bodies aren't that strong, I've bumped my 12" into my car door, and it got a dent. Now I'm very very careful with it. Anybody else got stories or pics?

PowerPC :: Powerbook Superdrive Not Working / Spitting Out Any Disc That Put In

Mar 25, 2009

So about 6 months ago, my powerbook g4 1.67's drive just starting spitting out any disc you put in. It would take them, whir around for a bit, then eject. It seemed like it had just died pretty much. Today, on a whim, I decided to try a disc in the drive, and it works! Apple repair had given it up for dead, so why do you think it came back?

The iMac is a G3 Slot-load SE, and the PowerMac is a G4 450MHz AGP. I happen to have an AGP that only came with the telephone jack, but no modem card connected inside. Both modems look the same in photos: 661-2213 (slot load) & 661-2186 (AGP). Is the only difference that the newer one has flex K56?

I installed 10.5.7 yesterday. Immediately after the installation was complete, my Apple bluetooth keyboard stopped working. Went into Bluetooth system settings, and it said that there was no bluetooth hardware found... (it's built into the machine!!)...

Also, every time I start iTunes, it gives some weird error about Adobe Flash player. I'm not at home now so I don't have the exact wording of the error with me, sorry...

I can't open my airport, bluetooth, volume control or anything on the desktop header. I tried to go through System Preferences (which I could open) but when I try to open bluetooth there all I get is the beachball and have to force quit.

Hardware :: Bluetooth Mouse Stopped Working

Jan 8, 2010

I just bought a MacBook Pro about a week ago, and installed WinXP SP2 through Boot Camp. Everything has worked fine up until this morning when my BT mouse suddenly stopped working on both Mac OS X and Windows.

I fixed the problem on the Mac OS X by trashing a preference file, and the mouse now works perfectly.

It still does not work on Windows, though. When I try to install it, it locates the mouse, connects, but the system tray displays the following message: "A problem occured during hardware installation. Your hardware might not work properly".

I have a feeling it is a software problem. I tried reinstalling the Boot Camp software, but it didn't work.
