I gave a dual processor G5 Mac Pro that wont start. This happened after it had sat unplugged fro a prolonged time. Now when I push the startup button, the power light goes on momentarily, there is a click, and then the power light goes off. I have replaced the 3.6V battery and pressed the small setet button on the logic board. Still same problem.

Sounds like the PSU is bad, can you test it?

Thanks very much for the responses.
There is a red LED near the power button that flashes momentarily before the power shuts off.
Resets involving key combinations are not a posibility because the machine will not power on.

You can try resetting the NVRAM. When you press the power button, hold down cmd-option-O-F
When you get to a promt, type reset-nvram and press return.
Then type reset-all and press return.
If this doesn't work, you may want to consider looking on ebay for a replacement power supply, although it's also possible the you have a bad logicboard/motherboard.

Unplug all peripherals, Monitor & power, pull PRAM Battery, let sit 30 minutes, hook power back up, put PRAM Battery back & see if it starts.
Also check if there's a red led lit on the logic board & that the plastic sheilds swith/sensor hasn't come loose.

Firstly there are PowerMac G5s, and then there are Intel (non-PowerPC) Mac Pro.
Mac Pro came out Aug 2006 1,1
