No power, is my power supply died?

I have an A1225 24" iMac. Last night I shut down my iMac. When I woke up, click to the Power Button and iMac does not start. No power. No sound. Nothing. Totally Dead.

What I tried:

SMC Reset and Change Power Cord.

Current LED light status:

  • 1st LED lit (After SMC Reset this LED coming on but when I push the power button LED turns off),
  • 2nd LED (no light)
  • 3rd LED (no light)
  • 4th LED (no light)

I mean when I click to power button 1st LED lit turn off.

I am using EU to US adapter 'cause I bought my iMac from US with US power cord. I changed adapter with new one suddenly iMac starts. I shut down pull the cord from power and assembled iMac. Click to Power Button now it doesn't start again.

Probably problem is not from iMac its from my power adapter, cable or something;

is PRAM battery can cause this? Because I never changed it. Almost 7 years passed.

Could be but I doubt it. Since you have your computer already open, you might as well change it. Double check your power adapter. It sounds like that is where the issue originates from.

Last update; It doesn't open again. Last night I didn't close just made sleep after 5 hours I try to wake up no power again. I disassembled again and all LEDs lights off. Pull the power cord wait 10 min and put it again first lights come back but when I click to power button first light trigger second light and immediately lights turn off itself. Then I must to wait 10 minutes for the power. I really don't know what can I try. I don't want to buy new PSU cause I don't know it is the really problem.

@telepati I'd definitely start with the power supply based on the fact that your LED turns off. It's easier to diagnose and you always want to start with the easy things first. If that does not yield any results you can most certainly move on to the more complicated things.

LED #1

Indicates that the trickle voltage from the power supply has been detected by the main • logic board. This LED will remain ON whenever the iMac is connected to a working AC power source. The LED will remain on even when the computer has been shut down or put to sleep. The LED will turn off only if the AC power source is disconnected or the power supply is faulty.

LED #2

Indicates that the main logic board has detected proper power from the power supply • when the computer is turned on. This LED will be ON when the computer is turned on and the power supply is working correctly.

LED #3

Indicates that the computer and the video card are communicating. This LED will be ON • when the computer is communicating properly with the video card. If LEDs 1 and 2 are ON and you heard the startup sound, but LED 3 is OFF, then the video card might be installed incorrectly or need replacement. Note: this LED is not used on systems with the integrated graphics.

LED #4

Indicates that the computer and the LCD display panel are communicating. This LED will be • ON when the computer is turned on and video signal is being generated. If the LED is ON and there is no image on the LCD display panel, the LCD display panel or inverter might be installed incorrectly or need replacement.
