Well, I am back from Afghanistan on R&R and upon my return home, I found that the wife reported our MDD will not turn on.
Behavior is as follows:
power button on case (or monitor) does not turn on Mac.
1. Removed power cord, allowed to sit for several hours and reconnected. Attempted to push power button on case, lit for half a second and then nothing, no power on.
2. Removed power cord, disconnected all internal drives, removed all RAM, removed video card, hit CUDA button, let sit for an hour or so, reconnected power cord (only), same results. Put RAM back in and Video card.
3. Checked net, pulled PSU from case, opened it up, could not find "fuse" or any damaged components, looked brand new, albeit dusty, reinstalled PSU, started to pout, posted this issue here.
I am not really looking forward to paying for Genius Bar to tell me to buy a new Mac or PSU, especially if all I need is simple and achievable for the skilled with a soldering tool.
What can I do to verify that it is the PSU? or have I beaten the horse to glue?
Is there a fuse that I missed which could save me more money than switching to Gieco?
Best/most cost effective solutions for replacing the PSU? (Looking for recommendations on vendors whom you have good results with, don't mind paying more for peace of mind.)
