Occasionally you may have problems while working with your iMac. Read on to find
some solutions to try when you have a problem. You can also find more
troubleshooting information in Mac Help and on the iMac Service & Support website at
www.apple.com/support/imac.
If you experience a problem with your iMac, there is usually a simple and quick
solution. If you encounter a problem, try to make a note of what you did before the
problem occurred. This will help you narrow down the possible causes of the problem
and then find the answers you need. Things to note include:
 The applications you were using when the problem occurred. Problems that occur
only with a specific application may indicate that the application isn’t compatible
with the version of the Mac OS installed on your iMac.
 Any new hardware (such as additional memory or a peripheral) that you connected
or installed.
Warning: Do not attempt to open your iMac except to install memory. If your iMac
needs service, consult the service and support information that came with your
computer for information about how to contact an Apple Authorized Service Provider
or Apple for service. Your iMac doesn’t have any user-serviceable parts, except the
memory.

Problems That Prevent You from Using Your iMac
If your iMac won’t respond or the pointer won’t move
 Make sure the mouse and keyboard are connected. Unplug and then plug in the
connectors and make sure they are secure. If you have a wireless keyboard or mouse,
make sure the batteries are fresh.
 Try to force problem applications to quit. Hold down the Option and Command (x)
keys and press the Esc key. If a dialog appears, select the application and click Force
Quit. Then save your work in any open applications and restart your iMac to be sure
the problem is entirely cleared up.
 If you are unable to force the application to quit, press and hold the power (®)
button on the back of your iMac for 5 or 6 seconds to shut down the computer.
Unplug the power cord from the iMac. Then plug the power cord back in and press
the power (®) button on your iMac to turn it on.
If the problem occurs frequently when you use a particular application, check with the
application’s manufacturer to see if the application is compatible with your iMac.
To get support and contact information for the software that came with your iMac,
go to www.apple.com/guide.
If the problem occurs frequently, you may need to reinstall your system software.
See “Reinstalling the Software That Came with Your iMac” on page 48.
Chapter 4 Problem, Meet Solution
41
If your iMac freezes during startup or you see a flashing question mark
 Wait a few seconds. If your iMac doesn’t start up after a brief wait, shut it down
by pressing and holding the power (®) button for 5 or 6 seconds, until your iMac
shuts down. Then hold down the Option key and press the power (®) button again
to start up your iMac. When your iMac starts up, click the hard disk icon and then
click the right arrow.
 After your iMac starts up, open System Preferences and click Startup Disk. Select a
local Mac OS X System folder.
 If the problem occurs frequently, you may need to use Disk Utility (on the Mac OS X
Install Disc 1 that came with your iMac) or reinstall your system software (see
“Reinstalling the Software That Came with Your iMac” on page 48).
If your iMac won’t turn on or start up
 Make sure the power cord is plugged into your iMac and into a functioning
power outlet.
 Press the power (®) button and immediately hold down the Command (x), Option,
P, and R keys until you hear the startup sound a second time.
 If you recently installed memory, make sure that it is correctly installed and that it is
compatible with your iMac. Check whether removing the memory you installed
allows your iMac to start up (see page 33).
 Unplug the power cord and wait at least 30 seconds. Plug the power cord back in
and press the power (®) button again to start up your iMac.
 If you are still unable to start up your iMac, see “Learning More, Service, and Support”
on page 51 for information about contacting Apple for service.

Problems with Your Internet Connection
If you have trouble with your Internet connection, you can try the steps in this section
starting with Network Diagnostics.
To use Network Diagnostics:
1 Choose Apple () > System Preferences.
2 Click Network and then click “Assist me.”
3 Click Diagnostics to open Network Diagnostics.
4 Follow the onscreen instructions.
If Network Diagnostics can’t resolve the problem, there may be a problem with the
Internet service provider (ISP) you are trying to connect to, with an external device you
are using to connect to your ISP, or with the server you are trying to access. You can
also try the following steps.
Cable Modem, DSL, and LAN Internet Connections
Make sure all modem cables are fully plugged in. Check the modem power cord, the
cable from the modem to the computer, and the cable from the modem to the wall
jack. Also check the cables and power supplies for Ethernet hubs and routers.
Turn the modem off and on to reset the modem hardware.
Turn off your DSL or cable modem for a few minutes, and then turn it back on. Some
ISPs recommend that you unplug the modem’s power cord. If your modem has a reset
button, you can press it either before or after you turn the power off and on.
PPPoE Connections
If you are unable to connect to your Internet service provider using PPPoE, make sure
you have entered the correct information in Network preferences.
44
Chapter 4 Problem, Meet Solution
Check System Preferences settings:
1 Choose Apple () > System Preferences.
2 Click Network.
3 Choose Network Port Configurations from the Show pop-up menu.
4 Drag Built-in Ethernet to the top of the Port Configurations list.
5 Choose Built-in Ethernet from the Show pop-up menu.
6 Click PPPoE.
7 Select “Connect using PPPoE.”
8 Check the Account Name field to make sure you’ve entered the correct information
from your ISP.
9 If you chose to save your password, retype it making sure it’s correct.
10 Click TCP/IP. Make sure you’ve entered the correct information from your ISP
in this pane.
11 Click Apply Now.
Network Connections
Make sure the Ethernet cable is plugged into your computer and into the network.
Check the cables and power supplies to your Ethernet hubs and routers.
If you have two or more computers sharing an Internet connection, be sure that your
network is set up properly. You need to know if your ISP provides only one IP address
or if it provides multiple IP addresses, one for each computer.
Chapter 4 Problem, Meet Solution
45
If only one IP address is used, then you must have a router capable of sharing the
connection, also known as network address translation (NAT) or “IP masquerading.”
For setup information, check the documentation provided with your router or ask the
person who set up your network. You can use an AirPort Base Station to share one IP
address among multiple computers. For information about using an AirPort Base
Station, check Mac Help or visit the Apple AirPort website at www.apple.com/support/
airport.
If you cannot resolve the issue using these steps, contact your ISP or network
administrator.
Problems with AirPort Extreme Wireless Communication
If you have trouble using AirPort Extreme wireless communication:
 Make sure you have properly configured the software according to the instructions
that came with your base station.
 Make sure the computer or network you are trying to connect to is running and has a
wireless access point.
 Make sure you are within antenna range of the other computer or the network’s
access point. Nearby electronic devices or metal structures can interfere with wireless
communication and reduce this range. Repositioning or rotating the computer may
improve reception.
 Check the AirPort signal level. You may see up to four bars in the AirPort status icon
in the menu bar.
46
Chapter 4 Problem, Meet Solution
 You may experience network performance problems if a microwave oven, cordless
telephone, or other source of interference is near your base station. To minimize
interference, move the base station away from such devices.
 For more information, see the instructions that came with the wireless device or
search for “AirPort” in Mac Help.
Keeping Your Software Up to Date
You can connect to the Internet and automatically download and install the latest free
software versions, drivers, and other enhancements from Apple.
When you are connected to the Internet, Software Update checks Apple’s Internet
servers to see if any updates are available for your computer. Your iMac is set to
automatically check once a week, but you can set it to check daily or monthly. You can
also check for updates manually.
To check for updated software:
1 Open System Preferences.
2 Click the Software Update icon and follow the onscreen instructions.
 For more information, search for “Software Update” in Mac Help.
 For the latest information about Mac OS X, go to the Mac OS X website at

When an Application Doesn’t Respond
On rare occasion, an application may “freeze.” Mac OS X provides a way to quit an
application that’s not responding, without restarting your iMac. Quitting a frozen

ergonomics
For the safety of you and your equipment, follow these rules for cleaning and handling
your iMac, and for working more comfortably. Apple products are designed and
evaluated to the latest information technology and audio and video equipment safety
standards. However, you need to follow the safety instructions on the product and in
the documentation.
Safety Instructions for Setting Up and Using Your iMac
For your safety and that of your equipment, always take the following precautions.
Keep these instructions handy for reference by you and others.
 Set up your computer on a stable work surface.
 Keep your computer away from sources of liquid, such as drinks, washbasins,
bathtubs, shower stalls, and so on.
 Protect your computer from dampness or wet weather, such as rain and snow.
 The only way to disconnect power completely is to unplug the power cord. Always
unplug the power cord before opening the computer to install memory.
56
Chapter 5 Last, but Not Least
 Unplug the power cord (by pulling the plug, not the cord) and disconnect the phone
cord if any of the following conditions exists:
 You want to add memory
 The power cord or plug becomes frayed or otherwise damaged
 You spill something into the case
 Your iMac is exposed to rain or excess moisture
 Your iMac has been dropped or the case has been damaged
 You suspect that your iMac needs service or repair
 You want to clean the case (use only the recommended procedure described later)
 Your iMac contains magnets. Do not place magnetically sensitive material or devices
within 1 inch (25 mm) of the computer.
Important: The only way to turn off power completely is to unplug the power cord.
Make sure at least one end of the power cord is within easy reach so that you can
unplug your iMac when you need to.
Warning: Your AC cord has a three-wire grounding plug (a plug that has a third
grounding pin). This plug fits only a grounded AC outlet. If you are unable to insert
the plug into an outlet because the outlet isn’t grounded, contact a licensed
electrician to replace the outlet with a properly grounded outlet. Do not defeat the
purpose of the grounding plug.
Chapter 5 Last, but Not Least
57
Important: Electrical equipment may be hazardous if misused. Operation of this
product, or similar products, must always be supervised by an adult. Do not allow
children access to the interior of any electrical product and do not permit them to
handle any cables.
Warning: Never push objects of any kind into this product through the ventilation
openings in the case. Doing so may be dangerous and result in fire or a dangerous
electric shock.
Do Not Make Repairs Yourself
Your iMac doesn’t have any user-serviceable parts, except the keyboard, mouse, and
memory (see “Installing Additional Memory” on page 33). Do not attempt to open your
iMac. If your iMac needs service, consult the service and support information that came
with your computer for instructions about how to contact an Apple Authorized Service
Provider or Apple for service.
If you open your iMac or install items other than memory, you risk damaging your
equipment. Such damage isn’t covered by the limited warranty on your iMac.
Using Connectors and Ports
Never force a connector into a port. If the connector and port don’t join with
reasonable ease, they probably don’t match. Make sure that the connector matches the
port and that you have positioned the connector correctly in relation to the port.
58
Chapter 5 Last, but Not Least
Laser Information
Warning: Making adjustments or performing procedures other than those specified
in your equipment’s manual may result in hazardous radiation exposure.
Do not attempt to disassemble the cabinet containing the laser. The laser beam used in
this product is harmful to the eyes. The use of optical instruments, such as magnifying
lenses, with this product increases the potential hazard to your eyes. For your safety,
have this equipment serviced only by an Apple-authorized service provider.
Because of the optical disc drive in your computer, your computer is a Class 1
laser product. The Class 1 label, located in a user-accessible area, indicates that the
drive meets minimum safety requirements. A service warning label is located in a
service-accessible area. The labels on your product may differ slightly from the ones
shown here.
Class 1 label
Service warning label
High-Risk Activities Warning
This computer system is not intended for use in the operation of nuclear facilities,
aircraft navigation or communications systems, or air traffic control machines, or for
any other uses where the failure of the computer system could lead to death, personal
injury, or severe environmental damage.
Chapter 5 Last, but Not Least
59
Avoid Hearing Damage
Warning: Permanent hearing loss may occur if earbuds or headphones are used at
high volume. You can adapt over time to a higher volume of sound that may sound
normal but can be damaging to your hearing. If you experience ringing in your ears
or muffled speech, then stop listening and have your hearing checked. The louder the
volume, the less time required before your hearing can be affected. Hearing experts
suggest that to protect your hearing, you should:
 Limit the amount of time you use earbuds or headphones at high volume
 Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings
 Turn the volume down if you can’t hear people speaking to you
Understanding Ergonomics
Here are some tips for setting up a healthy work environment.
Chair
An adjustable chair that provides firm, comfortable support is best. Adjust the height
of the chair so that your thighs are horizontal and your feet are flat on the floor. The
back of the chair should support your lower back (lumbar region). Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions for adjusting the backrest to fit your body properly.
60
Chapter 5 Last, but Not Least
You may have to raise your chair so that your forearms and hands are at the proper
angle to the keyboard. If this makes it impossible to rest your feet flat on the floor, you
can use a footrest with adjustable height and tilt to make up for any gap between the
floor and your feet. Or you may lower the desktop to eliminate the need for a footrest.
Another option is to use a desk with a keyboard tray that’s lower than the regular work
surface.
Shoulders

Forearms and
hands in a

Feet flat on the floor
or on a footrest
Display
Arrange the display so that the top of the screen is slightly below eye level when you’re
sitting at the keyboard. The best distance from your eyes to the screen is up to you,
although most people tend to prefer 18 to 28 inches (45 to 70 cm). Position the display
to minimize glare and reflections on the screen from overhead lights and windows.
Chapter 5 Last, but Not Least
61
Mouse
Position the mouse at the same height as your keyboard and within comfortable reach.
Keyboard
When you use the keyboard, your shoulders should be relaxed. Your upper arm and
forearm should form an angle that is slightly greater than a right angle, with your wrist
and hand in roughly a straight line.
Use a light touch when typing and keep your hands and fingers relaxed. Avoid rolling
your thumbs under your palms.
Change hand positions often to avoid fatigue. Some computer users may develop
discomfort in their hands, wrists, or arms after intensive work without breaks. If you
begin to develop chronic pain or discomfort in your hands, wrists, or arms, consult a
qualified health specialist.
More information about ergonomics is available on the web:
www.apple.com/about/ergonomics
Cleaning Your iMac
Follow these guidelines when cleaning the outside of your iMac and its components:
 Shut down your iMac and disconnect all cables.
 Use a damp, soft, lint-free cloth to clean the exterior of your iMac. Avoid getting
moisture in any openings. Do not spray liquid directly on your iMac.
 Don’t use aerosol sprays, solvents, or abrasives.
62
Chapter 5 Last, but Not Least
Cleaning Your iMac Display
To clean your iMac screen, do the following:
 Shut down your iMac and disconnect all cables.
 Dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth with water only and wipe the screen. Do not
spray liquid directly on the screen.
Carrying Your iMac
Before you lift or reposition your iMac, disconnect all cables and cords connected to it.
To lift or move your iMac, hold the sides of the computer.
