Hello, I recently took my iBook G3 Clamshell from my collector's shelf just to play around with it again and because I had the sudden urge of installing Panther (it was running Jaguar), and unfortunately, the computer would not see the power adapter. Now, I do remember last time I used the computer (a few months ago probably), the connection was poor and I had to jiggle it around to get a proper connection, and sometimes even if I moved the cable a tiny bit, the computer would just shut off (as the battery inside is dead). While I have removed the battery because I tried replacing the cells individually but that failed, I doubt it has anything to do with the issue. My biggest disappointment was that I found out that the DC jack costed 80$ on iFixit and not available anywhere else really. I tried to fix it manually, pulling some of the connectors to try and get a better connection, but that didn't work and if I tried measuring voltages on my multimeter, it would give me this weird "kilo/mega omega" result which I have no idea what it is. Anyone has any tips of fixing the jack at least temporarily since I can't spend 80$ right now on a pathetic jack? Also, I don't have any other G3 laptops nor any G3 chargers to test with it. Thanks for all solutions.
