Why wont my Powermac G5 start up - it just makes a clicking noise when pressing power button

As soon as turn the power on at the wall socket the Powermac G5 makes a loud double-click sound. The light by the power button flashes on briefly and the fan spins very briefly and then it goes back to a state where it appears to have no power.

I have tried removing the battery - no change in the problem

I have tried resetting the PCM - no change

Any advice appreciated

Do you know how to get the CD/DVD drive open and closed again with no power?
Try a paperclip in the hole beside the drive.

I sent the G5 for repair and the power supply had failed so it is being replaced
