Is there a power button on the case? If there is did you push it? Is your keyboard good and is it plugged in correctly? Also power supply might be dead. Something that old a lot of things may have died. I think some of the old Macs had fuses but I'm not sure of that.

Hi,  The LC520 must be an old friend. It was built in 1993. That did not have the safeguards that Macs have today, although I don't know if that created your problem with the drive. It might be that a component or a piece of wiring simply got old and does not perform properly anymore. Sort of like me . . . For what it's worth, that Mac used OS7, and that system is way obsolete now. There are no applications around that work with that system. You might think of laying it to rest, or better yet, recyclingit, and getting a new, shiny Mac that will make your heart sing once more.

Usb not recognized on macintosh powerbook g3


The Powerbook G3 will be using the original USB architecture and I suspect that your flash drives are using USB 2 and are not backwards compatible, so sorry I don't really think it is possible.

When powering it up it starts to boot I get a blue screen then it goes black where do I start ?


Try starting your mac from it's install disc.
1) First turn off your computer.
2) Then restart it, right when you push the power button to turn it on, press the option key down and hold it
3) pressing the option key will bring to a screen where you can choose your startup disk. Usually, you'll see your Macintosh HD available to startup from. Don't choose anything yet.
4) Insert your install disc into the CD slot.
5) wait a couple of seconds and then clock on your install disc as your startup option.
6) after clicking on the disc, go to the menubar and click on Utilities then disk utility.
7)once the disk utility app is open hit "verify disk permissions"
8) after you've "verified disk permission" hit "repair disk permissions"
- this might take a long time depending how much you've actually done this (which it's good to do every other month or so to keep your mac running smoothly). things might seem to freeze up as well, but it's the mac trying to verify and repair broken permissions on your computer. Don't that's normal.
9) after you have repaired the disk permission, reboot your mac by quitting disk utility and then choosing the startup disk as your normal macintosh HD. That should do the trick. If not, tell us what has changed.

Apple power macintosh 8500 video won't display


Could be either or both of two problems. One is signal routing: some monitors want synch on green, some want separate synch. The VGA adapters come in different types for each, and some adapters have switches on them to select your monitor type. You may need a different adapter. The other issue is resolutions and refresh. You have to tell your Mac to use a resolution that the monitor can accept. You may have to use software like SwitchRes to enable non-Apple resolutions.
