Hi! I have a PowerBook G4 15", which I got from my uncle. He said it had some power issues, at least, the Mac guy at the shop he brought it to said so. So I got home, and for me, not being able to wait, I stuck two wires into the power jack. I suddenly saw some smoke, and ripped the two cables out.
I then was quite sad, but now after two years, I noticed a little bit of burnt plastic inside the jack. Then I realized, "it could just be some burnt plastic, that made the smoke." I bought a adapter for it, and it arrived (after 5 weeks -.-) So I looked on the charger unit itself, and noticed it said "Macintosh PowerBook ibook 45W AC Adapter"
I'm 100% sure I ordered the 65W model, but thought they had sold me the wrong one. But, surprisingly, the output said "24.5V 2.65A" I searched the web, and noticed the 45W geniune model had 1.8A of output power, while the 65W has 2.65A. I then came to a thought. What model is this then? I plugged it into my PowerBook, and ofcourse, it didn't start up.
So, i'm, thinking about getting a new powerboard for it. Or?
Any help would be great..
