...It tends to happen when the batteries are old and failing, so it may be something to do with damage trying to charge dead batteries. I always advise removing failing batteries ASAP.
I was planning on buying a replacement battery but now... I should buyi another Powerbook.
Update: charging the battery in the PB5,2 and then using it in the PB 5,8 works! So something is wrong with the later.
So it only runs off battery but can't run off mains or charge batteries any more?
