i work at a mac store, and today i came across a junked computer with my coworkers. we parted it out, and i ended up getting a 14" ibook g4 display. i believe it is in working condition, and would like to test it.

my real question is, are there any websites, pdf documents, or diagrams explaining the connections that come from the screen? there are 4 wires total coming out. one is the airport antenna, one is a connection to the logic board that seems pretty intence, and two others, one of which supplies power...
the problem is, i dont know which one, so any documentation or help is much appreciated.

thanks in advance

i hate to sound rude, but if you work at a mac store, dont you have a genius bar that would be able to find the documentation that you are looking for?

Still and all, even if you work for a Mac reseller, wouldn't you have access to Service Manuals, or at least have a contact within some sort of Authorized Apple Service provider?

I don't think so as the CompUSA guy said he worked for Apple and come to find out his title is "Consultant" . According to one of the Apple Stores they say they are not truly Apple Employees but rather a CompUSA/Apple Rep who has taken a course with Apple to sell products.

is this correct beefmank??? just curious.
