I have a 500Mhz G3 powerbook that decided to stop charging batteries.
They charge fine in my external charger, so I know the batteries are
good. It also won't really run on a batteries for more than a few
minutes. I figured it might be a problem with the PMU.

A few days later I started having problems with my screen. It seems that
the color green likes to go out over the whole screen. I can temporarily
get it to come back my knocking it a bit on the right hand site of the
powerbook, next to the trackpad.

Any thoughts on what these problems might be caused by or if they may
related?

Thanks a bunch!

Justin

Justin,

The problems are most likely unrelated. For the batteries, you need to replace your Power / Charger board. For the display, the issue is most likely the display itself, and that would need replacement. I'd replace the Power / Charger board first though, and see if that alleviates the problem.
