Thread: iBook - Intermittent Video
02-25-2006, 11:17 PM #1wooGuestiBook - Intermittent Video
I just purchased an iBook (800MHz, 30GB, 128MB) and the video is intermittent. Often times when I start it up, there is no video at all but it is obvious that the computer has booted up. Occassionally, i'll get consistent video with no problems whatsoever. Sometimes, when I do receive video, there are lines on the screen like a connector is loose. I opened it up and disconnected all the connectors and then reconnected them but i'm not 100% familiar with the internal aspect of the machine so it's likely that I missed something crucial. How can I remedy this problem?

You have a bad logic board and you may be able to get it repaired for free under apple's logic board repair extension program (http://www.apple.com/support/ibook/faq/). This has been a major issue with the late ibook g3 models, so several consumers filed a class action lawsuit against apple, hence the extended program. Anyways its worth a shot.

My iBook is 2 months over being 3 years old so I doubt i'd be able to get a free logic board.

I strongly suggest that you back up any information you might need, because if/when the board finally fails, it will be more difficult to do so.
