If it isn't the power supply, some of the early G5 imacs had a capacitor failure issue...mine just died, in fact. It was just shutting off by itself, even turned on once by itself....but tonight, when it shut down, it would not restart. I opened it up and looked and sure enough, 11 bulging/leaking capacitors. My local service center says there are two options: 1. new mother board-aprox $500 or replacing the capacitors- between $170-200. Until Dec 15, 2008..this was apparently covered under a special warranty extension program Apple had....typical!

Hi, it seems like a motherboard problem (hardware), you will probably need to bring the mac to an AASP. Before, you can try the Apple Hardware Test, or resetting the PRAM (Hold the cmd, alt, p and r keys)

SOURCE: connecting external microphone to imac g5

Get yourself a great little gadget called iMic. It's a usb connector that adapts to let you used your headset mic and the mac system os will recognize it very well. Works good .
Costs about 24 bucks or so..

Hello
If you can run it in safe mode, that means that you have an extension problem. I had most of the time problems with the ATI extensions.
First of all try too boot on another account, an new one would be good, to check if this is not account related.
Secondly i would reinstall the system (a clean install would be good, tough you can try an archive-install)
Thirdly if it isnt fixed I would delete all ATI extensions instead of the one that your graphic card uses. to delete: go to /System/Library/Extensions . 
Hope that helps

You will need to acquire and install a new power supply. I would suggest having a professional do it, being the iMacs are difficult to work on and not for the novice.

Bad capacitors often cause the no-turn-on problem. This page has a good picture of what bad caps look like in the G5. If you see this trouble in your G5, you might be able to get this going. Kits of capacitors are available (here's the place I got some from) and If you're comfortable with electronic soldering and replacing parts on a printed circuit board, changing out the duds may be all that's needed. I've seen three of these now. On one, there was just a single bad cap that was keeping the computer from starting up. It's certainly worth looking into.

My imac g5 wont turn on at all! what can i do?


First, you should make sure you you have power to the iMac. Next if you checked you don't have power the iMac and you do, you could bring it to an Apple Store near you so they can diagnose it. Note, " I pretty sure they could diagnose it." Then if they know what the problem is, you could buy the parts needed from sites that have them and replace the faulty parts. You might be able to find how to replace the parts on www.iFixit.com. If this isn't what you are looking for you should probably clarify your qustion because the question has tons of possibilities. Hopefully this can help!!!!
Note: The Apple Store people might be able to fix the iMac for a price.

Power up IMac but screen blank, fan on, light on but no response


I have one doing exactly this at the moment. It had gone to sleep and the fans were going like crazy. I think it is a Motherboard failure (it happened with many G5 iMacs), this one has been replaced once already, and I can't actually get it to install anything. I'm taking it apart tomorrow to see what I can find inside. If I fond anything I'll let you know.
