G'day.

I'm having issues with my battery charging, and I was wondering if anyone else (Im sure there are others out there..) with the same issue.

I plug in my powercable to the iBook G4, and sometimes it lights up red, or doesnt light up at all. When it doesnt light up, the Mac seems to think its charging, even though the time charging time remaining is going UP, not down... if I wedge something under the plug it'll light up and begin charging correctly... now thats all fine and dandy, but I know it cant be doing the plug any good..

Does anyone have any suggestions, or has anyone else had this issue before?

Many thanks...

I would suggest that your power adapter is stuffed - buy a new one before someone gets electrocuted :p

I would suggest that you find someone else with one and test their power adapter before you shell out for a new one, it is posible that its the socket or something.

Hmm good point. If it is the socket that'd be a logic board issue.. damn expensive to fix :p

Thanks a heap!

No, it'll be a DC Board issue... less expensive*
