Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
Hello, I have Apple Mac LC520 that has been sitting for a very long time and i don't know what is wrong with it. I inproperly shut it down and does not want to power back on again. I tried changing hard drives, keyboards and the internal battery and nothing works. I hear power going into the monitor but when I push the power button on the keyboard nothing happens. I do not know if its the memory, new help. please let me no whats wrong, thank you.
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.
