    Exclamation Clamshell charging problems!
    well i have a graphite iBook Clamshell and when i plug the charger in i have to wiggle the plug around and have it in a PERFECT little position for it to charge, its had the problem for a while and its getting pretty annoying, if anyone has had this problem or knows how to fix it(or even make it a little easier)if you could let me know that would be awesome.

    i think you need to change the dc in board. This is the board in your computer that the charger plugs into. Here's how you do it: Installing iBook G3 Clamshell DC-In Board - iFixit. Also, that site sells the dc boards. Hope I was of some help.
