I have a 12 inch PowerBook g4 867 at work, and the battery isn't being recognized, all I get is a "x" where the battery icon should be. I tried taking the battery out and putting it back in, but no luck. Also it does not fall within the re-call that Apple did. My guess is that the batt is toast and we need to buy a new one, just figured I'd ask if anyone had any ideas though...

Same thing happened to me and they gave me a new one. Sometimes they just go bad.

I have the same problem not as much now but what helps is to try to hold the battery in for 5 to 10 seconds but if it does not stay you have to take the battery out and you'll see what's wrong.
