My 17" LCD of my iMac G4 had received a blow from my 6 year old son about a year ago. It has slowly been losing large groups of pixels over time. I finally found a good deal on Ebay for a used LCD screen replacement.

I installed the screen, and transferred the inverter to the new LCD panel. On the first power-up, everything worked great. However, after powering-down, I transferred my iMac to its normal location, and it would not even power up! It is now completely dead. I re-opened the bezel, and I noted a slight smell of burnt electronics. I double-checked the connections, and everything was secure and in the proper configuration.

Is it possible that the inverter burned up? If it is, would that prevent the iMac from powering up at all?
