Weird Aluminium Book Video problem

I have a 667 Al powerbook with a weird video problem. Everything works ok. its just that looking at the video is like looking at a undelevloped photo negitive. The brightness control works. There are no lines in the LCD, no dead pixels. It works fine. I have not tried to take the book apart yet.

Any Ideas?? Suggestions??

Try this

Go to [Apple menu] > System Preferences. Select Universal Access. Click the tab that says "Seeing."

Under the "Display" heading, click the button that says "Black on White."

Did this help?

Ti LCD

Well after recaling the Ti several times. The LCD is working pretty well. It is a bit dim, I am assuming that it needs new backlights. It is usable as is. Thanks to all for the help and tips.
