    Ok, this one is quite complex to describe so bare with me......

    I have a Powerbook G4 15' Titanium that is totally dead (I actually have a PRAM battery on order for that) and when I plug the charger into it, it glows bright orange, almost red! Now, when I plug the same charger into my other Powerbook G4, it glows orange as usual, normal charging would do. My question is, what is the bright orange, red glow mean? Do you think it relates to the dead computer? Is it a battery issue?

    I'm more than happy to give you more info if you ask.

    Input would be greatly appreciated! :) :apple:

    Perhaps some pics of the charger lights might be helpful to see?

    I think the red glow means that the battery is completely uncharged (or below a certain percentage like 10 or 15 percent), and the orange glow means any charge between that and the 95% where it turns green.

    Can you switch the batteries between your computers and see if the glowing red battery will charge?
