    imac g4 white screen
    Dear Mac lovers,

    I just got 2 imac 15" g4's and would like to get them up and running.
    They worked just fine the last time they were used a couple of months(maybe years) ago.
    However when i start them today they both show a white screen. When you look closely from the side of the screen you will see that the screen is not completely white but just has a very very low contrast or something.
    Both of the computers are running os 9.2 (i am going to instal os x)

    Who can help me with this? I would really like to have this design classic to work again

    From the video looks like you are experiencing backlight problems. Is it worth fixing? Cost may be pretty heavy ~ ask Apple dealer.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
