I need help with my original clamshell iBook. I can barely see the screan. I can only see it when I tilt it up. The battery is charged and the computer is working regularly. Also the contrast is as high as it will go. Please help me! Thanks!

sounds like the back light is

sounds like the back light is shot, may just be the connection thru the hinges to the backlight.

not so fast..

Check the cable connection under the Trackpad shell, It is right under the Power Button. you will have to remove the Screws on the back of the iBook, and 3 under the keyboard. Pop off the complete trackpad plastic part. Check to make sure the connection is secure and properly seated. I just had to deal with it today
