The header says it all: I bought a new (new new, not secondhand) battery for my G3 (Wall Street) PowerBook as the old one wasn't charging.

The new battery came with instructions to press Shift+Function+Control+Power to reset the Power Manager, which I did before charging it overnight. No charge, however, and the icon on the ruler bar refused to show anything other than a battery crossed out.

I repeated the process, without effect.

Then I tried Battery Reset 2.0: still no change to the icon. (The old battery, though not charging, at least showed the battery icon uncrossed.)

Have I bought a duff battery, or is there anything else I can try?
