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
QUOTE Thanks

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!
