This reads like it's a power supply unit (psu) failure, possibly bad RAM. Are you in a position to test the psu with a multimeter? You really need to know how to open up your iMac, and which contacts to put the probes on to while your Mac is connected to a power supply. Wear medical rubber gloves while you're at it.

Second - have you tried a different power cord? May seem simplistic, but sometimes the simple solutions are the best ones.
