I have a slot loading indigo Imac G3 500Mhz running 10.3.9, 500Mb ram, 80Gb HD, Firmware 4.1.9 which i recently bought from a friend of a friend.
My problem is the screen almost always looks like the red is missing (very pale green in colour), at startup the screen will go either red or really dark then turn a pale blue. Sometimes if I leave the imac running for a few hours the screen seems to sort itself out with the occassional random flicker of colour.
I have plugged in an external monitor to the vga port and it works perfectly but i dont want my mac to act purely as a hard drive.
I have downloaded service manuals and was all for dismantling the bloody thing but I am massively concerned with going near the CRT for fear of death.
I really need to fix this as it makes using my mac extremely annoying.
I am at a total loss with this and any help would be much appreciated.
