Replacing an iMac Hard Drive with an SSD

Back in the early days of AAAD, our late-2009 iMac was the center of our connected home. It held all of our photos, our iTunes library, and our documents.  We replaced the late-2009 iMac with a 27" retina iMac a few years ago. My dad took the old iMac and used it in his office.  Last week, he let me know that the iMac was having issues, and that he'd bring it to me to check it out. It would only boot to the White Screen of Death. No Apple logo, no cursor, no pinwheel... not even a bomb icon.  I'd never repaired an iMac before. Was it worth trying to fix this one?
