Yay! My iBook Wont Charge Again!!

Some of you might remember my thread a little while ago that dealt with my charger sparking and such.

Well, my local Apple dealership place gave me a new one! YAY!

After a day or two of it working perfectly, my iBook refuses to charge, and it also wont turn on for longer than 5 min. I can only turn it on when the charger is green, and that takes some wiggling of the charger. When I get it on, it starts up, I log in, then BAM! Its off again.


Does anyone know whats wrong? Is it the logic board?

I plan to get a MacBook Pro whenever the next update is, but I need my old iBook so I can transfer all of my data.

Thanks for any help!

Logic board (), and no, probably not. I'd get the DC board checked out, since that probably killed your last charger.

The DC-in board is a little board that carries the charge to the logic board.
