View Full Version : ibook power source question - info please

Dec 1, 2005, 08:25 PM

I am new and need some info. I have a G3 ibook that I was given. I need to know what the amber light on the power chord means as well as the green one. Does the amber light mean - "charging" and the green one - "charged". I just want to make sure that my unit is working properly.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Yep, nice call. :)

The green is actually technically "not charging," as opposed to "charged." There are only time I can think of that the distinction makes a difference. The first is when you have no battery. :o The second is when you follow the calibration procedure. If I remember correctly, the light stays green while the battery is calibrating, even though it's empty. After a few seconds it goes amber and charges. :)

Welcome! :)
