    First of all I would like to thank those of you that helped me with my iBook issues - the iBook not seeming to be charging and taking power etc...

    I already tried changing the battery to see if that was the problem, but no joy. I took it into an Apple Authorised place near me, and they suggested it could be a logic board issue...

    This evening I went around to a friend's house, who also has an iBook. I tried, as a last-ditch effort, to use his power supply cable. I was suprised to find that it actually worked - and the iBook is now charging!

    So this is the third power supply I've been through... but I'm glad it was just that and nothing more serious...

    I know this isn't a solution that many would condone, but my mom's power supply failed on her clamshell iBook (after 4+ years, so that is OK)... but we took it apart and resoldered the parts and now it works again! If you are not squeamish about electrical work, you can try ressurecting your old power supplies :p
