Is my PB battery dead?

Message #1 - Posted 2005/07/25 - Gavin Ramsay

TiBook 1GHz. Battery has one flashing light when the check button's pressed. Refuses to charge - power adapter indicator ring stays green, battery icon shows 0%. iBatt reports it's maximum capacity, etc. as expected but next to STATUS shows "invalid 0x85"

My spare battery charges fine in this PB, and the dud battery won't work in our other PB either.

I've reset the power management (which was the only thing I could find in 20 mins googling)

Mucho thanks for any help

Gavin

Yep, it's dead.
