    First of all, Noob imac owner here. I was just handed down an old imac g3 400mhz desktop that doesn't power at all.
    When hitting the power button on the unit or keyboard, the units screen makes a noise. No hard drive or green light comes on at all. At dead silence in the room, i can hear the screen flicker, like a tv would come on. I went to go about and read a few problems before, replaced the battery and even tried a new power cord. Any Ideas?

    Sounds like a bad power supply.

    This hand me down might not be worth the trouble.

    ditto to the above. possible to mod a ATX peecee power supply for cheap, but if cutting/splicing wires is not your thing, recycle it or sell it for parts on your local craigslist as it is not worth the fix. sorry, best of luck.
