Have you done a PRAM reset, CMD+Option+p+r...
In fact, do 3 in a row, takes a bit of time.
How to reset the SMU/PMU on a Power Mac G5 (Late 2004) or Power Mac G5 (Late 2005) ...
Earlier G3, G4, G5 models...
P. Just in the interest of future clarity, the G5 1.8s were not Dual Core, but Dual Processor, 2 CPUs instead of 2 Cores per CPU.

I have tried this several times. It has only worked once, but within 12 hours it started up again. Thanks for the dual processor clearity! Any other ideas?

Might be time to replace the PRAM Battery, 4 years is close to their lifespan, far less if ever without AC power, & can cause strange startup problems...
See which one your G5 has...
Likely the last one here.
