Thread: Battery problem
12-24-2003, 05:04 AM #1mxben24GuestBattery problem
Hey. I own a POwerbook g4 and i love it. One problem is the battery. Its always messin me about. Sometimes the laptop says that its fully charged and irts not even charged at all. At the moment, the battery wont even charge. Well the red light glows on the charger but the battery doesnt charge (through looking at the light on the battery, its always really low) and on some occasions it just says that there is not battery available. ve tried the usuals like taking the battery out and putting it back in properly. Ive tried charging it in sleep and **** down mode and still it doesnt work. Any ideas on the problem or how to fix it? Cheers.

have you run all the latest apple OS updates on your computer.
Only thing i can think of is leave the computer on until it drains itself to the point where it is almost asleep. Shut down the computer and just let it charge until the battery indicators on the battery itself are full
