iMac G4 Graphical Glitches and More

I have a 2003 IMac G4, when I attempt to boot it up, the screen will spaz out and flash red and blue constantly, however the Apple Logo Will appear and the loading circle will start spinning, but after a few minutes it will freeze and then the fan will stop spinning and the hard drive will stop spinning. It does the same thing when I boot to a DVD. I've attempted to change the RAM, and the only conclusion that I can reach is that the motherboard is toast. It won't even boot into safe mode. Any way to fix this issue without having to spend any money on a new logic board?

Vintage and obsolete products

Apple has discontinued support for certain technologically obsolete and vintage products.

Vintage products are those that were discontinued more than five and less than seven years ago. Apple has discontinued hardware service for vintage products with the following exception:

  • Products purchased in the state of California, United States, as required by statute. Owners of these products may obtain service and parts from Apple Service Providers within the state of California, United States.

Obsolete products are those that were discontinued more than seven years ago. Apple has discontinued all hardware service for obsolete products with no exceptions. Service providers cannot order parts for obsolete products.

All retail Apple Stores and the Canadian, European, Latin American and Asia-Pacific operating regions follow the U.S. product list, but make no distinction between vintage and obsolete. When applied to the retail Apple Stores and these operating regions, all products on the U.S. Vintage list are considered obsolete.
