Hi everyone.

   I came across an Macintosh Powerbook 5300cs.  It turned on at first and I was able to shut it down. But now it will not turn back on.  It only makes a ticking sound, like a clock, when the power adapter is plugged in.  Went through the old manual, removed batter and cleaned the connections but still no go.  I would like to get it to work to show my students in the computer lab an old style working laptop.   Thanks for any suggestions.
