    I'm having some difficulty figuring out what exactly you're talking about. Do you have any photos?

    Take a gander at your ibook G3 power plug.....others may be the same, I can't say! Anyways, the tip of the "phono" jack in the middle busts off. Thus making it hard to get the new one in and the old tip just widens out those pins until it refuses to charge. I picked up my first ibook this way and fixed it. Fixing an ibook is not for the light hearted, I can say that for sure. It's not that hard, but it's tedious. It took me 8 hours, but I was caring for a machine at the same time. If you decide to retire it, I would be glad to buy it from you and repair it. In which case, I could back up what's on the hard drive for you and send it to you on cd's. Good luck fixing it though!!

    I think I prity much got it fixed just have to put the thing back to gether

    First I had to get he DC board out and then I pried out the back of the conecter gently and it came out and I pushed a gulery scew driver through and use a set of large plier like griper thing to sqease it back in

    you're much better off replacing the DC in board. I realize that it may appear as if you've fixed it and nobody can be the real judge of that....only the test. But, when I replaced mine, I ordered the part and had it ready. When it wouldn't turn on after I put it back together with the old board, without the battery...I yanked the old one and got rid of the problem
