Why can I only use my PowerBook every other day?
I have recently re-built my 1 GHz Powerbook due to a backlight problem that was not the inverter. Following the site's instructions I succeeded and it booted up just fine. The following day it did not want to know. Took the battery out and left the AC disconnected. 24 hours later BINGO!
Tried PRAM and PMU resets but still after use I have to leave it disconnected from AC with the battery out for 24 hours before it will start up.
One thing I did notice was that although the battery meter showed 100% when unplugged from AC it was only 2 minutes before the critic power warning came on the screen.
I'm sure this has to be something simple but could anyone tell me how simple?
Finally got a successful result. Down at my local Mac Swap-Shop I got a used PRAM battery still giving out over 3 volts, but not as high as a new one, and my new AC battery arrived. Now both are installed the old PB is sleeping and waking like it always did.
Thanks for your help guys
Is this a good question?
