Mavis no help here. The power light does not change, it's solid, however not green. It's a yellow and seems to stay solid when the power cable is wiggled. Is there some test I can run to check the battery?

... its not the cable that needs wiggling!

... wiggle the plug by the inlet (laptop) socket.
