Download and run Coconut Battery to get an idea of the condition and communication to the battery.

We're you having this problem before you replaced the battery? Has the new battery ever worked on this machine?

Hi Mayer, thank you and sorry for my orrible english.

I know coconut, the battery is ok. My power book

start with the battery charged. The ac adapter don't charge the battery. I try to unmount the battery but it don't start and the led remain off (no green or orange). I try to change ac adapter but it don't start. It is possible that the broblem is in "DC-In Board"?



Use a multimeter to test the output of the AC adapter. If it's good, then replace the DC IN port. Here's how to do it: PowerBook G4 Aluminum 17" 1-1.67 GHz DC-In Board Replacement


thank you, i will follow your advice.

All best


Please tell us just what Coconut battery says
