Crashes when unplugged or plugged-in.

I have a 17" 1.33 PowerBook. I have no problems charging or booting, or running, but whenever I unplug the charger the computer will turn off. Or, if I boot when unplugged, and then plug in the charger, the computer will also turn off. It always happens just as the charger is about to disconnect (about 1/4 of the way inserted). With the computer off and the top-case removed, if I insert the charger plug 1/4 way into the DC-in board the PRAM battery makes a soft, high-pitched noise. I've replace both the DC-in and the PRAM battery, but nothing has changed this problem.

I'm at a loss. Could it be the charger? or the DC in board, the PRAM? or a short somewhere else? I don't want to buy a lot of new parts if it's most likely a short in the motherboard.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Run the PMU reset and the PRAM reset and see if that helps. Ralph

Have reset both in the past with no effect, and did it again, still with no effect. Have tried 2 different batteries, with the same result.

If you can borrow another charger try that to a least eliminate a cause. Ralph

Try connecting/disconnecting the power at the outlet. What happens when you do that?

When I unplug from the outlet everything is fine. But even when unplugged, if i unplug from the computer, total immediate shutdown.

Wiggle the power connector at the laptop end a little bit while its running. This may help you narrow down which is faulty, the power connector on your laptop or the end of the power cable.
