Currently Being ModeratedMar 20, 2008 6:18 PM (in response to fiberobtix)The flashing battery light you describe indicates that the battery is not charged. You might try resetting the PMU and see if it will charge then.
Please post back if this does not work.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 25, 2008 5:58 AM (in response to S.U.)I have the same problem. I have tried to reset the PMU, no luck.
I have a older battery that charges OK. The newer battery (2 months old) worked fine up until 3 days ago. Now I can't charge it past 3%. The older battery charges fine up to 100% so it can't be the power cord.iMac 800 MHz PowerPC G4 1GB SDRAM, dual core intel iMac, G4 12" powerbook,, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 25, 2008 6:05 PM (in response to Mike Wheeler3)If the older battery charges properly and the newer one does not, it's possible the newer one is defective. You might try taking it back to wherever you got it and asking about a replacement.MBP, 17"hi res, 2.4GHz Intel Core Duo, 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, Mac OS X (10.5.2), iBook G4, 800 MHz, 640 MB RAM, 120 GB WD HD, 10.4.11; 1999 CRT iMac Rev.
