Title:

iMac won't start. Bad power supply?

Text:

Howdy everyone! Just purchased a 24-inch iMac Intel from eBay, hoping to fix it. I've spent probably 2 hours now diagnosing the problem and I think it might be the power supply. Can someone confirm that for me?

When I press the power button, the CD drive and hard drive spin. The first LED on the logic board is always on, but none of the others turn on. I get no startup chime, no screen, and no spinning fans (although one jerks a little when the power button is pressed).

Isn't the second LED to show that the logic board has received power through the power supply? Does that tell me that I should buy a new one? Thanks so much!
