To help with getting your battery to charge, try resetting the PMU

-PMU RESET-
The Power Manager (PMU) is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is usually on the logic board of your Mac computer.

It is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

• If the computer is on, turn it off.
• Now refer to this article from Apple.com Support
Resetting the PMU for Powerbook and iBooks

If this process does not help to allow your battery to charge normally, you more than likely have a battery which may be either dead or eventually will die in its charge capability.

What I would recommend if that is the case, would be to consider purchasing a new battery from Apple or via a third party reseller like online Apple authorized resellers like Amazon.com, MacMall.com or Fry's Electronics for example. You may also Google with keywords "purchase iBook battery " and shop for the best priced iBook battery.

Again, you would only consider the latter, if the former procedure listed above does not help.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

While is was searching on the internet my iBook G4 locked up. I tried to reboot and it locked up again. I tried to reinstall OSX but during the install it locked up. I replaced the memory and hard drive...


Dude, if you have all the current updates for your OS and applications, then you got a logic board issue. Especially if you you keep seeing the spinning beach ball of death or the dreaded white screen of death. 
The iBook G4 is the poster child for logic board defects, because it has to do with the way the circuit boards were flowed.  Apple won't fix this for the iBook G4.  You got to do a big class action lawsuit like they did with the iBook G3 before they will replace the logic board.
Best bet is to sell this thing on e-bay as a non-working unit and get you a better laptop.

Battery for iBook 14inch not recognized by iBook


you could try resetting your pram..?

Resetting PRAM and NVRAM
  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
  5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
  6. Release the keys.
Your computer's PRAM and the NVRAM are reset to the default values. The clock settings may be reset to a default date on some models.
Resetting PMU on PowerBook or iBook computers In some troubleshooting situations, if resetting PRAM does not resolve an issue, resetting the PMU may be the next appropriate step. For information on when this is appropriate and for instructions on how to reset the PMU in your PowerBook computer, see Resetting PowerBook and iBook Power Management Unit (PMU).

How to replace clock battery of ibook G4 laptop


Replace the on board capacitor with a Panasonic Capacitor 5.5V 0.22F Model number:EECS0HD224H cost about $3 . You will need to desoldier and soldier the new one on, it's easy even for a novice.

It is a kind of on board battery contrary to what most idiot mac users say as a battery IS a form of Capacitor.

Computer won't show start up screen, only shows different colors ie. green, then pink, blue... i took out the battery and started it without the battery and got the same results.


First you need to reset the PRAM:
  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
  5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
  6. Release the keys.
Next you need to reset the PMU (power management unit). This will depend on the model of your iBook so follow the instructions on Apples page:

Hope this gets you going again

All the best

Ibook G 4/12.1/1.33/5aptx.....will not start


Some computer react this way when the logic board goes bad or have a defect in it.  
First, Try this:  
Remove the battery.  Plug back in the power cord, then press and hold down the power button til you hear a loud beep sound. then release it.  If the computer starts back up... Then you should be okay.
If not, it may has something to do with the logic board.
Let me know if the above works... We may can try some other things if not.

The computer is locked up (multi colored wheel spinning) t


You can go to the Apple (top left) and on the drop down menu, select "force quit"(which is similar to CTRL-ALT-delete on PC) and quit the program that is locking up.The fact that it locks up with 4 screns oprned tells me that the iBook may need more memory.I believe that the iBooks come with 256 MB. You can add memory and keep this from happening.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Can you connect an external monitor to the Macbook? You can verify your lcd screen this way.
You may need one of these connectors:
