Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
The green light turns on when I plug it into the A/C power slot and I let it charge. After awhile I open it up and I hit the power button but nothing happens and the green light goes away. The only way to get it to say it is charging is to pull out the battery and put it back in. Then the whole process starts over again.
Have you tried running the computer with just the AC plugged in and not with the battery? If not try that. It could be the battery is going out. I had a similar issue once. If that doesn't work it might be the power supply / powercord or it could be the motherboard.

sometimes you have to remove the memory, unplugged and without the battery in remove it then hold the power button for 10 seconds to clear any power in the pc.

Motherboard is damaged I recommend ebay for a board of that type, there is no simple fix I own three T20s and when one did the same thing I just replaced the motherboard that solved the problem. the lcd screen and inverter were fine.
based on the non powering issue now I would say the MB is shot, replacement will give you a few more year use however for a reasonable price.
