This computer sounds like it has died. You can try to see if Apple will fix it for you, but I doubt that they will. It may be time to buy a new computer.

It does, but its not a fault, its a component. You may need to zap your
pram or reset the pmu. when the power cable is plugged in, does the
battery light flash on the bottom fo the machine confirming its
charging? When you press power, does the caps lock key light up after
being pressed? if your battery ( extenal ) is faulty, your machine
should still power off the auxilary cable. the power cable bypasses the
battery when plugged in. Do you keep youpower cable plugged in for
extended times regularly, that kills batteries. make sure youre cycling

Remove both RAM chips and re-insert, because sometimes they come loose. Now give it a shot old chap. Also, your RAM chips may have died, so insert new ones and give it a shot.
Don't install Panther 10.2, because that operating system (OS) is too old. The PowerBook runs best with the Tiger 10.4 OS. You need to install a retail version disc with black label instead of a gray label disc, because those discs are computer specific to certain models only.
