    Hi all, i have just purchased a sold as faulty, IMac G5 20". It will not boot, but is getting getting power from the PSU because the first LED is lit, when i press the internal power button the second LED lights up momentary and the fans spin for a fraction of a second, then nothing. Now the seller stated it was working then started acting strange, so he opened it up and it had bad caps, so he replaced them, but his soldering skill where not so good, and it didn't help. I will replace the caps again, but i am worried about something i see on the rear side of the board. It looks to me like maybe he somehow he got a little piece of solder bridging across the board (see in pics) and maybe that could be causing the board to short out on boot.

    Please can someone look at the pics and tell me if this is normal or its what a stated.

    Thanks in advance
