Is the power adapter the correct voltage?
Does the battery show that it's charging?
If the answers to these are both 'Yes' then remove the battery and try to start up again. If this works, reinstall the battery and everything should be fine.
Another possibility is that you may need to reset the PMU.
If none of these work, you may need to replace the Power Board/Power switch/Logic Board.

There are several models of iBook G4. The following sequence applies to the "14-inch Early 2004."

Ibook g4 screen issue


That screen will most likely be compatible - I work on these for a living. The G3 laptop screens are usually not compatible with the G4 laptops, but all G4 laptop screens are compatible with eachother (provided they are the same size, of course.

IBook G4 shows picture of mouse needing batteries


It sounds like your internal trackpad isn't working, and it is currently asking you to hook up a mouse, be it thru Bluetooth or USB - have you tried a USB mouse on it to see what happens?

My iBook G4 Won't Charge


Sir, to help you solve your problem I need a few details. 1. What is the input source?--in my country power input is 240V AC at 50 Hz.
2. What is the adapter config? Tha t is the 'mA' and 'V' rating on the adapter.
3. If it is a loose connection on the adapter(as it seems to be in your case) you can slap it and get some results for sometime.It that stops working, you will either have to open the adapter and fix the loose connection. Or get a new adapter(recommended)
I think, this is a prob with the adapter. Even if it is not the adapter, using an adapter that works in fits and starts will damage the battery in a long run.
Please change the adapter.
Also please rate this if it was helpful.
