    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 :)p), 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.

    here's a pic of one:
