G4 (AGP) power supply advice?

Message #1 - Posted 2006/01/15 - Mason C

Hello experts:

I have a Power Mac G4 (AGP) whose power supply has failed.

( The fan stopped, was replaced, it ran a few hours then stopped. The battery was replaced and all the PMU CUDA stuff done. There's no trickle voltage. -- It's dead. )

Questions: where does one get a replacement power supply?

Any other advice will be appreciated.

I've had this bookmarked for some time but never bought it. My supply was very noisy but never failed. Bought a Quad instead.

Go on eBay and search G4 power supplies.
There are around 4 of them there. 2 are buy it now for $50. A couple more are starting around $9.
There's even an "Adaptor from ATX Power Supply to Apple G4" for $10. Good luck.
