Fat (512K) Mac Revival?

It could be something as simple as a bad PRAM battery.
There's a little door in the upper back, that has a
battery in it.

Open it and see if there's a battery in there. If it
hasn't exploded... You probably can try replacing that
as a start.

Next would be the Power Supply/Analog board.

But, yes... You should be able to buy a replacement
cheaper than fixing that unit. Though, you might find
buyers for the parts to help fund that.
