Hey all. Just got this sexy piece of hardware for a song with box, 2 of 4 Styrofoam inserts, pro keyboard and manual, and want to get it working. It has no hard drive or bracket, but optical drive, RAM, airport/bluetooth board, and modem board. It also has a brand new power supply. I opened the machine up, and did not see any bad capacitors on the motherboard. From what I have read, the original ones had a + or X pattern on the top (where the vent is), and replaced ones had a k. I had a eMac 1.25ghz motherboard with burst caps, so I know what they look like. Plus, those were orange on the outside, and these are black.
It does show some signs of life. When I plug it in, LED #1 on the motherboard comes to life. From what I have read, it means the motherboard is getting power. I tried using the internal power button, tried removing the CR2032 battery and booting, tried replacing the CR2032 with the good one in my remote for my car and booting (the one in there was still good too. I put it in my remote and hit the panic button and it worked.)
iMac G5 Revision B Ambiant Light Sensor edition
512mb of RAM
no hard drive (originally 160gb according to the box)
new power supply
built in bluetooth 2.0+EDR and 802.11g
Even if I can't get this thing working, it's worth more on fleabay than I paid for it.
