    This problem just started yesterday. The iBook battery will not charge nor will the light on the charger show any color when plugged in. The battery time until full charge icon is stuck on "calculating."

    1) The charger is fine since I checked it on another iBook. (Light comes on and changes appropriately.)
    2) I have multiple batteries so any one individual battery is not the problem. Also it registers the proper charge capacity.
    3) I've reset the PMU and it does not help.

    Any thoughts on what the problem is?

    My only thought is maybe your PMU is fried? Or possible the connection on the motherboard. But I would think the PMU.

    Yeah i can't say i have opened up a ibook for repair. I have fixed powerbooks that won't turn on before though. So is the DC input on a separate board from the logic board then?

    I thought it was the DC board. Wanted to get your input before shelling out any money.
