My friend's original 15" iMac (g4) was working fine till a community-wide power outage. Now it won't respond to the power-on button. Tried unplugging everything for ten minutes, switching power outlets, reseating its power cord—nothing doing.


We live hundreds of miles from the nearest Apple shop. Before we make such a trip, does anyone have ideas about what might be amiss? Suggestions appreciated!
