I'm not an expert, but have suffered a couple of similar situations. In one the problem was the battery placed in the logic board (easy to resolve), in the second the culprit was a bad Power Supply  :'(

In the troubleshooting section of the PowerMac G4 Service Manual PDF attached (in english despite the translated spanish title), you can find the checking and repair procedures.

Good Luck!

I'd try resetting the board. There are micro switches on the board that you can reset and start the computer from the board switch instead of pressing the button on the front.

I had a quicksilver arriving that way. I ended with taking all the cards out disconnecting the drives and voila the sucker started.
