    Power input
    Hi guys,

    I had a question regarding the input to my charger (the part that goes orange when charging). Whenever I plug it in, it doesn't do anything, other than when I push it down is when it goes orange. If I hold it there and boot the computer, it's fine and the computer starts up and works. But whenever I let go of it, the computer turns off.
    I have opened it up and everything, but can't see anything blatantly obvious.
    I have an ibook clamshell. Any ideas??

    Heh a clamshell....That was how I got into Macs.. Yeah I'll field this question since I've worked on more clamshells than Barry Bonds has hit home runs. Your AC Power Plug-In Port (The part that glows orange.) has come loose. There's a screw holding it in, if it feels loose to you, it needs to be tightened. If it's tight, buy another one off of eBay as it's toast.
    Yes my name is Jaguar.
    No, it is not a joke.
    I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

    Still not working
    Yup, i double checked it and it is very tight. Does this mean it is definitely in need of a new AC power plug?

    Yes, he's right. The instructions on how to do it are on and the part can vary from $20 up.
