    Exclamation Fast Blinking Orange Charger Light

    I just bought a second hand PowerBook Aluminium 1.67ghz/512/120gb with bluetooth and all the whistles. However, upon getting home and plugging it in, I get a rapid fast orange light on the charger, and yes, I tried 2 diffrent chargers, they both do the same thing.

    Can someone explain a fix for this thing ?
    I get no sound, no display, nothing but a blinking orange light on the charger. really fast steadily blinking.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like a dead battery. Have you tried swapping it out with another one?
