Hi there.
Make sure you have the voltage and amperage right first before you try and power up the motherboard.
Most laptop motherboards run on 15, 19 or 20 volts and take a different amperage like 3.42A for example.
The power in will be displayed underneath the ibook so take a look there.
Don't plug a 24 volt power supply into it unless it specifies that because you could damage the board.

Good luck with project

Won't start up


Either power or logic board problem. If it chimes but does not boot and the screen lights up then it is a good sign. Will it do anything?

If does nothing try a different power supply first.

Try removing battery and disconnecting power supply, then try to start it without battery and just power supply.

then try charging the battery overnight. If the lights on the battery show any charge after a few hours with it plugged in and the computer turned off, try letting it charge overnight and then try starting it without power supply connected. If none of these thigs help, I would have to look at it.

Power button on ibook g4 does not work all the time


The power button on these are a if I recall actually fixed to the keyboard top surround.
You could try rotating it slightly to see if that helps.
Other than that you will have to take to an apple service agent to get replaced.

I push the power and nothing happens on my ibook g4 14-inch


If you are not using the AC adapter (you are using only the battery), then the battery may be dead - simply replace the battery. If you are plugged into the wall, and the light on the power cord, where it meets the computer, is green, the unit is receiving power. If the unit is receiving power and it will not boot at all, then either the motherboard or the hard drive is most likely problem. You can replace the board, but it may end up being more expensive on an older G4 than it is worth. Once you are able to determine if the unit is receiving power, the only thing you can really do from there is take it to a repair shop and have them perform a test on the power supply, hard drive and/or the motherboard to see which one of those is causing the problem. If the hard drive is fine, you will most likely be able to recover your files.

If this procedure does not being it back, invasive diagnostics are required, in which case you should being it to an Apple-Certified tech for repair.

G4 ibook works off charger, but not battery. battery at 75%


Replace your battery.
When a battery is dead, the charge level it reports is meaningless. When a battery reports a charge but still won't keep your machine running for more than 30 seconds, it's dead.
The fact that the OS knows when the battery is present or absent doesn't mean anything, as it it just reading the presence of the battery interface board.

Normal operating temperature of Apple Ibook Power supply ?


Use the free App called iStat Pro to monitor ALL temperatures. Give your Mac some air (literally)
There is a big difference between CPU Temp and, for example Enclosure.
You also may have a very high CPU usage for a while.

I have a white macintosh g4 laptop that freezes after 15 minutes.


Open System Preferences:
Click on the Lightbulb Icon entitled "Energy Saver"

Adjust the preferences for each of the two options:
Put the computer to sleep when it is inactive for:
1min 15min 1hr 3hrs Never
Put the display to sleep when it is inactive for:
1min 15min 1hr 3hrs Never

Set these for Power Adaptor and Battery separately.
