Title:

Power issue: Runs with battery only. DC in Replaced. What else?

Text:

Laptop runs fine with the battery, alone. '''NOTE:''' I just replaced the DC-in board with no improvement. 

As soon as I plug in the AC Adapter, it immediately shuts-down. The indicator light at the DC-in plug doesn't light up at all (ever).  I have 3 AC adapters, and it's the same with all of them. 

I just replaced the DC-in Board, and the problem is exactly the same. Unless the replacement is also bad, I am at a loss as to what it might be.

Device:

PowerBook G4 Aluminum 15" 1.67 GHz
