Yes it most likely is the logic board or PS. If it's broke it's broke.

As far as a new logic board or PS...unless you can find them at a very low price or if the cost is not a problem...then go for it. But depending on the model iMac G4 you have...in it's present condition...it may be worth $50 bucks (for parts)...maybe less. In 100% working condition it's only worth around $100-$125.

I'm pretty sure a logic board will cost more than that...and power supplies are expensive as well for such an unusually shaped computer.

Good luck,
