My iMac won't boot up!

Please HELP!!

My iMac 27" won't boot up. This is what I've done in hope to repair it.

Try to boot from my install disk, nothing.

Try using a bootable USB with the OS X installed, nothig.

Did however boot using target disk from my macbook.

Using my macbook I erased the entire hard drive and installed a new OS X 10.6 still, but it all finish and restarted, nothing.

I did also reset the SMC, the PRAM, force start using the key X, nothing.

However if I use startup disk, using the firewire and select the hard drive from my iMac(won't boot) from my macbook it will boot up, but from my tiny macbook screen.

Please help!!!

Device:
