 Post subject: G4 Powerbook Battery Charging Problem

My 15" Aluminum G4 PowerBook has been suddenly stopped providing charge to batteries. The power adapter still provides power, and the OS appears to see both the battery and the adapter, but the charge on the battery holds steady at 6%. The same happens with a spare battery (though it's not held at the same %).

The suggestions I've found so far (most suggest reseting the PMU I believe) have had no visible effect. I'm thinking either a power regulator or some type (on the motherboard maybe?) or the power adapter itself, but I am NOT well versed in this area at all.

Any suggestions?

Its most likely going to be two both batteries. If one of those you know works (i.e. it can charge higher in another powerbook) it is going to be the logic board since it has the charger circuitry.
