This is a repost. My Power Mac G5 (bought in 2005) won't start up. I have checked the power cords (replaced the old one) and the plugs have been checked also. House fuse box is OK as well as the power strip because printer and other computer on this power strip all start up fine. When Power button for the G5 is pressed - nothing happens. No lights, no sounds, no fans. I was able to use it on 5/5/13 when it powered up and shut down normally.


Pulled the power cord for 15 secs and then plugged back in - nothng happens. BDAqua suggested replacing the PRAM battery which we did. Still nothing happens. And no Red LED on the logic board. Also pressed the SMU with no success. I'm running out of ideas - HELP!
