Unfortunately the PPC G5 based Macs are now classed as vintage, spares availability has been withdrawn. The 1.8 GHz 20" was discontinued in May 2005. I suspect Apple will simply recommend upgrading to a new model.

I've only ever seen one 100-120V PSU, it had blown when connected to our 230V supply. It was similar to our universal voltage variant, and in time they suffer from bad electrolytics. If so, you'll see the tops bulging. Here you can buy via eBay capacitor kits. Unsoldering all the electrolytic capacitors and replacing with new may be one way of keeping your iMac going. I've done similar to the iMac G5 logic boards.
