i do believe i posted about this some time ago in the poewrpc forum. i am suffering the flaky display cable, and it's getting gradually worse each time it starts to go out. basically, theres a period of time when it works fine, and then a period of time of the display doing odd things. a year ago it whited out, but now i get lines across the screen or else it turns hot pink.
thats enough for the issues. i really need to fix it. i wondered about a few different things. first off, i did read that the 13" cable (size i have) is the one known for this issue. apparently the 12" and 14" cables don't do it? even more important, if they work can they be fitted in my display? i also noticed that other machines such as the ibooks use the same connectors on the display end, but i'm doubting there's another powerbook cable that has the motherboard connection to carry the display signal as well as the mic signal. another option was whether or not i could just take the backing off my display and tape down the cable (checking the display to see how it reacted of course) to keep it from shifting.
hopefully someone has some ideas to either fix this cable or get rid of it. i'm getting to the point that i'm back-slapping my bezel to get rid of the stripes without making it worse. i really don't want to hit my prized wallstreet, so help me!
