If you think you might have damaged the socket (the place you plug it into the computer) when you removed the piece stuck in i, the the first solution might be true. I'd try something easier first though.

1) make sure the adapter is good by testing it on another laptop.

2) check the end of the charger. If the circular piece surrounding the "prong" in the middle is bent so it doesn't make a complete circle, it might not be getting good contact. Press or pry this back into a circle.

3) make sure your battery can take a charge by either testing it in a friend's iBook. If you plug the charger in and it doesn't turn orange, check the battery indicator in the upper right to make sure it doesn't say something like "unable to charge".

Charger shortage


Try and borrow a charger from someone and see if that works, or even use your charger on someone elses macbook. Then you can work out if it's the charger that's faulty which will mean buying a new one or if it's the laptop that's faulty. What you want to do if it's the latter is entirely up to you.

I have got apple macbook pro unibody , my charger light is blinking and not charging battery while my laptop is on but when i shut down my laptop its connecting and disconnecting for 10 seconds interval


Try charging your laptop with a spare charger. If your laptop is still under warranty, make an appointment with a genius bar representative at a local Apple store to diagnose your laptop's issue and replace the charger.

Warning!
Do not use the USB ports to charge any external devices from your laptop! Instead use the chargers they were packaged with.

If the spare charger doesn't work after an hour of charging you will have to reset the System Management Controller with the Mac turned off:
Press Shift-Control-Option-Power key combination.
Release and press the power button.

If resetting the SMC doesn't work try resetting the PRAM. Keep in mind that you have to enter the key combination before the grey screen appears!

Reboot your laptop.
Immediately hold down Command-Option-P-R combination.
A reboot sound should confirm the reset.

My MacBook wont charge


So does the organge light still not come on now? If it doesn't try a different charger first. If that fails, your DC-Jack module or logic board may need to be replaced. There are detailed instructions on how to do the restore online. Here is an Macbook Repair Guide that shows how to open a Macbook. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Macbook Repair.

The charger port will not take the chargers current to charge the battery.


You got to use the real sh.t and not the cheap imitation China chargers bud. Bite the bullet and get a real Apple charger. If you still can't get a charge, then the battery is the culprit in which you should get a new battery. New battery and charger and still no luck? Then you need this part replaced but you gotta find one that is the same speed processor and model type:

My apple ibook g4 will not recognize the charger


It takes a lot of force to break a charger connector in the charge socket, so the connector socket in the iBook will probably be damaged and needs replacing. Take it to a reputable repairer, or, if you have the skills, you can fit a replacement DC In Board.
