Question about Apple iBook G4 Mac Notebook

Ibook screen issues

Hi,A G4  12" ibook with screen that comes on but the lower quarter of the screen just stays white (very faint color vertical striping) with a narrow horizontal dark band. The top 3/4 is normal. Then after 2 mins the whole screen fades to dark gray. I close the lid so it sleeps, open again and it will run for another 1 or 2 mins before turning dark gray again.
Should we replace the inverter board, screen, both or something else?
Thanks, TC

This is nearly impossible to diagnose via the Web. It sounds like the logic board is at fault, but not necessarily.

FAINT VERTICAL PIN STRIPES MOVINGS TO FULL AREA OF SCREEN


Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!
