Do all Mac computers have this problem after 3 years or so? Is there an alternate solution to the problem?
This is a defect that could occur with any LCD screen not necessarily your G4 notebook. I've even seen it occur on a new LCD monitor fresh out of the box.

There is no alternate solution to repairing the display other than replacing it.
