Ibook doesn't turn on

I'm having a strange problem with my ibook. When I try to turn it on without the charger plugged in it doesn't turn on. But if i take out the battery and plug into the charger it works. I can put the battery back in when it's on, disconnect the charger and the battery works fine. I tried resetting the pram and it nothing changed. Any suggestions?
Welcome to Apple Discussions!
Have you tried resetting the PMU? Also, what is the health of the battery? And is the battery fully charged when you attempt to start up your computer? Do you have to remove your battery in order to start up with the charger? Or will it start with the charger plugged in and the battery in place?
