Question about Apple iBook G4 Mac Notebook
Teacher in school brought me the laptop with the tip of the power adapter broken off in the power port. I'm stumped as to how to get it out of there. Thanks.
I poked through the first time, however on the second one, there was not enough room to accommodate another tip.
Thanks to instructions on how to remove the DC board from ifixit I managed to pry the two tips out of the unit and it is now charging and all good.
Note that on page 3 it says to use a T8 screwdriver, I used a 2mm allen key as this is a better fit.
