Powerbook Charger Cord: Indicator light going red?

So what does it mean if it goes red? If i plug it in, and wiggle it a bit, it'll change red. I dunno if the LED is just screwed up?! I tried looking here, and searching the finder help but nothing came up...

This is normal, red / orange means that the battery is charging. It will return to green when the battery is full.

ah... i know this heh heh... Just it actually changes from orange to red. Hence my confusion. I'd put it in... its green... changes to orange... i wiggle it... and it changes to red.

I think the LED is just screwed up.

lol..... ok. Then nothing to worry about. I thought the 'red' meant there was a problem with the connection.
