PRAM batteries on the G4 PowerBooks are an aging part causing errors with the date and time among other things. You can replace the battery with just a few simple steps.
手順 1 — PRAM Battery ¶
You will need to remove the PRAM battery assembly from your computer. Refer to our G4 PowerBook guides for how to do that specifically for your computer.
Make note of where the positive (+) side connects so to eliminate confusion when you try to install the new battery.
There are only two locations where you will need to solder.
手順 2 ¶
With a soldering iron, place the tip on the first joint and hold it there until the solder liquefies allowing you to pull the battery's terminal away.
Do the same for the second, soldered joint.
手順 3 ¶
With the old battery free from the assembly, you can now install your new one.
Again, make note of where the positive (+) side is installed.
手順 4 ¶
Place the battery terminal directly on the remaining solder joint.
Using the soldering iron, apply pressure until the solder liquefies and joins with the battery terminal
Do the same thing for the other soldering joint and you are done.
