Having troubles with the G3

Texto:

So recently I got my hands on a IMac G3, and I’ve been having problems with it turning on. To explain, whenever I hit the power button wither on the keyboard or computer itself, the crt makes the sound of a static discharge/piping sound, and the power light comes on and the edges of the screen light up ever so slightly. However right after turning it on, it immediately powers off, and if I try turning it on again shortly after. the crt makes a sound that’s comparable to a sqeek and powers off almost immediately. I did however replace the pram battery, but the computer is still doing the same things it was doing with the old pram battery. So I was hoping if someone could help pinpoint the problem or if my computer is long gone.
