Hey everyone, I hope someone can help me out here!
I have an Ibook g3600 12", and after immense airport travel I started having troubles with the screen.
Basically, if the screen is opened to the right angle (quite wide) and it is powered on afterwards, it will work fine. However, if you open the screen to lets say 90 degrees and power it on, the screen is so faint it is almost not on at all..., infact I didn't even know it was coming on faintly until i really looked at it.
If you power it on and the screen doesn't come on, it wont come on by adjusting the angle. You have to shut it down, close it, then open it to the proper angle and restart.
I took it to the mac guys here and they quoted me a ridiculous price of something like 300$. But what they did tell me is that it is probably the LCD cable, or the "inverter board". Both of which I've found on ebay, but not purchased yet becuase I am confused as to what this problem actually is.
I know that during the airport travel, the Ibook unfortunately got packed pretty tight - a squeeze on the top and bottom which sort of pinched the fold.
I figured I'd try to take it apart and have a look, but I am not so experienced with laptops, and after taking out about 15 screws, I don't wnat to go much further as I'm afraid I wont be able to put it back together.
Does anyone have any solutions as to how to replace this LCD cable? or if anyone knows what this problem is for sure?
Thanks a lot for your help guys.
I really appreciate it.
