    Well, my YoYo power adapter for my Wallstreet seems to have died. I know where the problem is too, but I dont know if its fixable. The wire right near the head of the connector seems to have broken, so it only turns the Wallstreet on if you hold it tightly together. Is this a strip/solder job or will I have to do something else to replace this? I really dont want to buy another, but I suppose if need be I can.

    Thanks for any and all help.

    I lost a YoYo adapter at the other end--the AC cable was partly broken right where it goes into the round thing that plugs into the underside of the base and kept shorting.

    Cracking it open and re-soldering would probably be all that's necessary, but frankly were I you I'd just buy a 3rd party brick from somewhere like OWC--they run around $20 and are built pretty well.

    Sure, they're not as interesting-looking as the YoYo, but the generic black brick actually matches those PowerBooks better.
