 Post subject: 667 Powerbook won't charge even with new battery

Hi,

My trusty G4 powerbook which, despite me dropping it from several feet up onto a concrete floor last Christmas, has never before given me any trouble, is now really playing up.

It basically doesn't charge up or recognize its got a battery in it.

I put a friend's functioning battery in the slot and it still wouldn't turn on without being plugged into the mains.

Is this a 'logic board' type disaster? If anyone has any suggestions please let me know..its like having a broken right arm (which i can't afford to fix!)

thanks,
Hugh

Make sure the battery charger cable is firmly seated in its connector. If your lucky, it won't be, or possibly the cable is bad....more likely than not it is your logic board though.

Before you give up, try resetting PRAM.
