    I broke the connector for my power supply... help!
    Hey everyone, maybe someone here may be able to help me out?

    I tripped on the power cable going into my iBook G4 and now the tip of the connector is broke and the round part is bent so it wont fit into my iBook.

    Anyone any suggestions on how to fix this the cheapest way possible? neye:

    don't believe you can fix it, every time my powerbook cable gets bent (although not as serious as yours) I just buy a new one.

    yeah, if the tip of the power adaptor is broken, your better off just getting a new one.. Im sure someone on these forums has an extra that they would sell you.. If you bought it from apple it would cost $79

    I broke the tiop of my power connector off awhile ago. It worked for a long time even without the tip. The tip eventually got stuck inside the connector in the computer and I ended up having to replace the DC-IN board on my 12" G3 IBook.

    Good luck.
