XServe G5 will not power up

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

I shut down my XServe G5 before going on a trip for a few days and when I returned it would not power up. I checked the power cord at both ends and it is fully plugged in. I know there is a Lock Switch somewhere but I don't know if that could be the problem.

If it was disconnected from AC your PRAM battery has likely died.
