Intel 24" iMac 2.66 won't power on!

Hi,

I own a early 2009 Intel 24" Alu iMac 2.66ghz. I was using it the other day and suddenly it went dead. I tried turning it back on - nothing happened. So I changed the power cord and tried it in another room - nothing.

So I found the guide on here and swapped the power supply with a new unit. It didn't fix the problem :(

I was thinking it might be the logic board but surely it would do something if it was this? I get nothing, no fans,noise, nothing.

Any other suggestions on what I could check? Oh, and I did try the SMU reset and reseating the RAM...

PS. I've no applecare.

Many thanks!!

Martin

Ok, here we go, power cord is plugged in,turned on at wall.

From the left

1. Green light on

2. Off

3. Doesn't seem like there's an LED here anyway

4. Off

This is with the NEW power supply installed, yet it still won't turn on.

Cheers

Martin

#2 light off

  1. When the computer is turned off or the power supply is working incorrectly
  2. I would say you got a bad power supply

It's a brand new one..I think I would be pretty unlucky to have 2 bad power supplies.

I'm reading this right out of Apple manual. Are you sure it's turned on? LED #1 will be on with it just plugged in.

Here is a link to mayers original post with all four lights. From your description I would say its either not turned on or you have a bad power supply. +

LED power supply and logic board tests

if the first led lights ON with GREEN, meaning the power supply(PS) is good, when turning the switch ON, second LED must lit... if its not light it means that the logic board is not receiving any voltages at all, check your SWITCH and the swicth connector to logic board, check also the connection of the PS going to logic board.

The first light only means it is getting trickle voltage, not that it's good. If the second light is on then the power supply is good.
