Recently @PO15KA very kindly donated me a PowerMac G5 for my collection. I’ve never had a cheese grater Mac and have very little idea on how to troubleshoot them.
This one does nothing when plugged into power. No lights no fans no nothing when I try to boot it. Ive tried holding the power button in and also replacing the PRAM battery.
It is a dual processor model (not a water cooled model).
Does anyone have any hints? It is complete other than the graphics card + HDD. Does it need a graphics card to even turn on? I’m tempted to try buying a PSU on eBay but don’t want to spend anything on it till I know that the logic board is ok.
