    G'day Bob and welcome to the forums.

    If you are keen you can try and rebuild the battery. Here is a guide:-

    Make: Online : Replace Powerbook G3 Battery Cells

    Otherwise off to eBay and such looking at auction sites:-

    Try buying a computer from this century.

    In all seriousness, try cleaning the head of the power adapter and socket with rubbing alchie.
