  2. Nope, My iBook's not Charging, I'm really starting to Hate my Mac, Because form what I saw on anther post, this could Cost a a lot...

    So My Problem is, My iBook G3 Won't charge, Well from the title you probaly guessed that. I started up My iBook to install a New HP printer, So it got done, And i turned off my iBook. I came back to use it later and Pressed the Button on the Battery to see how much charge there was and If I needed to take the AC with me, And the 4 green lights wouldn't work. I plugged it in to see what was wrong, I loged in And Where the battery info it There was a "x" inside the battery. I took the battery out and put it back in, and The AC adapter light goes from Green to red And The Battery Has the Little Plug in it, the battery says 0% full, And about five Mins. latter it turns back to the "x".

    It's not the AC adapter, I know this for sure, So it's the battery or the iBook.

    Can anyone help Me? This time I really don't know what to do.

    (iBook G3, 10.3.9, 128MB Ram, 30GB HD, 12"in., Dual USB, Firewire, 800MHz)

    i think That there is something wrong with the power input board.

    The Logic board went through the program a few years back, So I don't think it's the logic board.

  3. Laptop batteries only have so many charge cycles in them, before they give up. Depending on how old your iBook (and its battery) is, this could be a battery problem. Do you happen to know anyone with a similar iBook that you could try their battery or try your battery in their iBook?

    Some web pages to read on laptop batteries:
