G4 iBook .... The battery will not charge
Short story: I have power from the power supply. The battery is seen by the OS, reporting a 4 percent charge, and by Systerm Profiler which tells me that the battery is not being charged. (A third party utility says that the battery is "OK" and can accept a charge.
I've seen the steady green light on the back of the cmputer come on .... but not stay on for more than a minute.
I've resest PRAM and PMU. I've a new power adaptor. I previously had trouble getting any consistent power to the computer through the adaptor so I had that repaired .... no trouble now with AC power.
So, the computer can see the battery. I've even been able to run it for a few seconds off of the four percent charge that is there (with the proper battery icon appearing). But ... the batter does not get charged.
