I have a cracked and broken screen on an old powerbook
(G3 series) and recently found another which has a dead
mainboard, so I am hoping to take the screen off this one
and use it on the first. I am not sure how to unattach it,
is it fairly straight forward, or will bits ping out all
over the place !?!
The screens are easily swapped in 5 minutes. Make sure to remove all sources of power prior to beginning work. Don't attempt anything unless you're comfortable in doing so.
1) Lift keyboard.
2) Remove tunnel cover.
3) Disconnect video and inverter cables.
4) Remove 4 screws inside I/O panel door.
5) Remove screen.
But not all screens will work on all units. It is safe to swap same size/style between units. Just because a connector fits, doesn't mean it will work.
