My mom just dropped off her iBook with a problem I'm at a loss for. It seems that one of the small "balls" that make up the innards of a dessicant cartridge got into the hole in the iBooks power port. (where you plug in the power adapter) Now the adapter doesn't seat properly and you need to hold the adapter at odd angles to charge the battery. Anyone have any ideas that don't involve bringing the maching to Apple on how to get it out. At this point you can't see the ball anymore.
