that mean???
Thanks RAy.

The Performa 200 has a power toggle, not a button. Holding it in any position wouldn't have an effect.

When I googled your problem this came out as solution. Could you please try this?

1 Verify that jumper on memory expansion board is configured
correctly for “SIMMs” or “No SIMMs.” (See “Memory
Upgrade” in Upgrades.)
2 On 4 MB Macintosh Classic, confirm SIMMs used are eightchip SIMMs. (See Memory manual.) Any 1 MB SIMMs with
fewer than eight chips won’t work in the Macintosh Classic.
3 On Macintosh Classic, replace optional memory expansion
board; on Macintosh Classic II/Performa 200, replace
optional SIMMs in two SIMMs slots on logic board.
4 Replace logic board. Retain customer’s SIMMs.
