I have a ibook g3-500 with a messed up jack on th dc in board.
Looking at the dc in board with the jack up and the cable down, there are three solder points.
What are the voltages for the solder points? I think the only terminals used is a 25 volt and a ground. Which of the solder points would I hook up the 24 volt and ground wire to? Left to right 1 2 3, the shield of the power plug doesn't have a wire from the power supply.
____ outside of case [ ] shield on jack *** THE 3 SOLDER POINTS
So where do I hook up the 2 used wires from a power supply?
just the shell left, totally gutted out. When I took it apart the tip of the original power supply was still in the jack. They had bought a new power supply and were still using it after a fashion. They were tweaking the plug around trying to get power, but would loose power when moved.
They had tryed to use a needle to twist the connectors in the jack.
So by the time I disassembled it and found the tip, it was no longer working.
I want to solder a couple of wires to the dc board and connect to a powersupply to check if there is more damage.
I'm not sure that I want to buy the dc board, battery, and keyboard for a 10 gig, 500mhz, g3. But before I do anything I need to find out if it works.
If the jack wasn't so messed up I could have just used a meter to check out which are conneted to the power supply and which is power and ground.
I found a french page that showed how to repair the plug and had marked the ground and 24 volt so I found there are only two connected to the power supply.
