Drained battery

If your PowerBook doesn't turn on, start by connecting the charger. After a few minutes, turn on the computer and then disconnect the charger. If the computer stays on, the battery needed to be charged. Reconnect the charger to recharge the battery.

Hello There

open computer and take off ( disconnect PSU) under keyboard you'll find ram module , check if the module is well fitted inside its bay , try taking it apart and then fit it welling its bay and then restart computer

i had a similar problem with my 3400 , i discovered that ram module was not well "fixed" , i taken it apart ( the computer will start normally making chime even ram is not in ) then i reinstalled ram and it's still working . I suggest to pull apart battery if it is non working and test it only with power supply ( the pismo one or iBook clamshell can work )
