    Red face Powerbook G4: power light flashing green... oh no, now what?
    Hi everyone,

    That green light (that turns amber when it's charging) on my AC adapter is now *flashing* green when I plug it into the Powerbook. And the computer won't power up. I take out the battery, plug the power in again and it still *flashes* green. What is the cause of this?! Is my power adapter toast, or is it something worse? Egads, I hope it's just the power adapter!

    Any thoughts would be appreciated. It's an 867 Powerbook G4 12", the coolest computer I've ever owned. You only realize how much you miss your computer when you experience a hardware failure...

    one, your in the wrong forum, but i will help you sinc i happen to be in the is flashing because it is not getting a steady reading that it is pluged in. This could be your power adapter but more likely your computer. If you have a apple care plan and it is still affective, this should be fixed with no cost to you, if you are going to have to pay to get it fixed it is going to be quite costly.
