So i just need to change the power supply box with one the same and it should go again? cheers

in theory, yes. but there are other possibilities.
I assumed the green light was on the power supply unit, but it could also conceivably be the Ethernet port which sometimes have a green flashing light. Ultimately its trial and error by swapping out parts
