I had to have mine replaced because the wire right near the plug into the computer was stripped and the wire began to fray. Has the wire stripped anywhere? Even if it hasn't, I suppose it is possible for the wire to become frayed under the plastic cover.

You might also want to try resetting the PMU. That might solve the problem. Just remove the keyboard, and look in the rear right hand corner. There should be a small metal button in the recess of the case. Make sure you have the computer off, unplugged, and the battery out.

Is the PowerBook's casing around the DC-in flush or does it stick out a little?

When my PS connector got bent, I was able to find one on the Internet for $35 shipped. Let me see if I can find the name of the company.
