What model G4 are we talking about? First thought is you have a bad power brick. Ralph

Good answers… all it would take to see if it's the charger is to use a multimeter to see if it's getting the proper DC voltage to the plug. If it is… it's like matthewfrey says, probably the DC-In board.

I'm going to go head and assume either an iBook G4 or Powerbook G4 - If you have tried another power adapter, the next likely step is to replace the DC-in Board.

I'm gonna assume it's your charger- how old is it (the charger)?
