Question about Apple iBook G3 Mac Notebook
I bought a power cord from ebay as well as the laptop from another seller anyways the laptops green light will only come on as i slightly pull the ext. cord out for only a few sec. then turns off
Several points here:
1) More info as to make/model, and type of powercord would have been helpful.
2) From your description above, it sounds like you have a faulty connection in the laptop's DC/Sound card (the small circuit board that the power cord plugs in to). You can sometimes get a temporary workaround by rigging a way to apply gentle pressure on the plug to keep it connected, say with a rubber band or the like, but the only real fix is to have the board fixed or replaced. Sooner or later, the workaround - won't any more.
3) With most iBooks and Powerbooks I've worked on, this involves nearly complete dis-assembly of the computer, and you have to find a working part, or be handy enough with a soldering gun and lucky enough to have a break that you can fix yourself.
4) Parts are for-sale on eBay, or from other parts resellers on the web.
If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.
