I have an iBook DV clamshell. Battery will run fine for about 2 to 3 hours. Plug it into the AC and the light goes from green to orange, but...

It goes back to green after only 3 or 4 minutes. Battery only gets about 2-percent charged. I've done all the reset things, including the reset button above the power switch - actually was able to do this several dozen times over the course of a weekend without turning it on, and finally got the battery charged to 100%. But once the battery ran down, it was back to the green light again.

Is it the charger board? I had this problem with the old battery. Replaced with a brand-new battery. Same thing.

Yep, me too. I have an indigo 366mhz and I just replaced the charger board with a board purchased here from powerbookmedic. Unfortunately it appeared that it was going to work, but I got the same behaviour. Charged for a few minutes, the LED turned green but the battery is only at 2 to 5 percent.

I have a host of other problems I'll relay in another post.
