    As I've said in a previous discussion to you.

    You need to check the charger. I suspect your current charger is at fault.

    Obtain another charger to check if your iBook will power on.

    Where is the pin? If it is nowhere to be found, then it is likely stuck in the adapter port. In this case, you will need a new charging adapter, and you will also need to have the DC-in board replaced (the part of the iBook which houses the adapter port).


    Good luck.


    ** For others reading this, if you have an adapter which has a bent pin, stop using it and buy a new adapter to keep this situation from happening to you. It is a complicated fix to replace the DC-in board.
