IBook G3 won't turn on

Hey everybody,

Just wondering if someone can help me. I've this G3 Ibook for about a year [bought it used] and haven't really used it on a daily basis because I have a PC desktop. I would guess that I hadn't used for about 2 weeks when I tried to turn it on a few days ago but to no avail. The battery had 3 lights so I charged it to full. I found the Power then Option, Command, P, and R tactic and that didn't work. Then the next day I tried that again and it actually worked.

However, today I tried to turn it on and nothing. Tried to hold down the keys and nothing happened again.

Has anyone experienced these problems? What I would like to do is start it up at least 1 time and maybe go on to sell it?
QUOTE Thanks
