iBook G3 not booting

Heres my other thread about the other laptop i was given...
It is a 12' iBook G3 600Mhz.
When I try to start it, I can hear the chimes but the screen stays black. If i tilt the screen back and forth sometimes it will show solid gray.
I opened it up to see if I could notice anything unusual, and notice that 2 wires from the inverter cable have snapped off right before they go into the connector. Could this be causing my problem?? I am assuming it is, and I attempted to fix it with my amateur soldering skills, but no joy.
Would purchasing a new inverter cable solve this issue?? Or could this be an issue with the GPU separating from the logic board?

If there are two snapped cables and wiggling effects it it sounds like a new cable should fix the problem...
