Why is my screen black at startup?
I have a 17" iMac G5 (with ambient light detector) that powers up fine. I can even hear the drive booting.
HOWEVER... the screens stays black.
I swapped a known good iMac monitor and the problem stayed. (and the suspect monitor worked fine on another iMac)
I replaced the inverter board with another and still no joy.
Anyone have an idea what is wrong?
I do not see any bulging capacitors on the mother board.
