@appleipodnano the only thing for now is checking the power cord. Make sure that it is not frayed or cracked due to age or weathering. Out of habit, I stand to the side of the equipment to check it and when I turn it on. Just old habits from some "interesting" devices I 've worked on. Otherwise, give it a try and let's see if it'll fire right up :-) Let us know if it turned on....
@appleipodnano just in case you actually would like to troubleshoot or consider working on it you may want to look through these guides. The ESD safety Guide will be of particular interest to your personal safety ;-) EMacESD Safety Technician Safety We would need to know the exact model for your eMac to be more specific for the service guide. Enjoy it.
@appleipodnano no problem. Yes, you should be okay. Of course, it all will depend on where it was stored. Any chance it may have gotten liquid into it? If unsure, then I would do it a bit different. Use the guide I've attached and just remove the rear housing. Then see what you are up against. Any corrosion, frayed wires anything, then wait and repair that stuff first. Post a couple of pictures with your QUESTION so we can see what you see. At this time you do not have to worry about the ESD safety etc since the device hasn't been plugged in for a long time. Of course, it is always good practice to not unnecessarily touching exposed wires or components, but you are safe on a piece that was unplugged for a long time. By now, it will be totally discharged.
Congratulations on being careful and conscientious. All good traits to have, to get things fixed right!
