My I book g4 has black screen it has the fan and chime noise but no screen it's black what can I do


Hook up an external monitor. If that works the inverter on the laptop screen went out. It's an easy fix and part to find or a repair shop can do it for you relatively cheap.

Okay. Try this

If it does not help then it is possible that the Back light on the screen is faulty. If you just purchased the computer, then you should go back to the vendor and ask him to change or fix it .

My g4 power book screen is very dark


This is door to a poor backlight meaning the backlight needs to be changed out. Going to cost like $125 for the part if you do not know how to do it then a tech will need to get involved so tack on your labor. I hope this helps as it did dozens of people with the same issue. please do leave ratings and feedback for your free answer today.

Do you have this machine plugged into AC power? If not, you may just have a depleted battery, which would fit these symptoms perfectly.
The problem is not software related, because with a missing or empty internal drive you would get a flashing question mark folder icon instead.
Does the machine power off when the screen goes black, or does it continue to run with a dark screen? Common solution for the latter is to wait two minutes until the boot sequence sounds complete, then press the F2 button to raise the screen brightness. Failing that, you may have a blown-out backlight tube in the screen itself, which can be addressed.

I have a power book G4, it's about 4 years now, apparrently i can turn on the laptop but the screen just black out i cannot see anything on it what could the problems be? thank you


It could be the tube that lights the screen not working. best thing is to get it to a service centre.
You can use the mac by plugging in an external monitor to check that the mac itself is OK.

Failure to reboot after a Software update.


Hi stuart,
It sounds like you either may have a corrupt system or a faulty hard drive. Try reinstalling OSX with the system discs that came with the computer. You can still keep everything if choose the "Archive and install" option.
If this doesn't help, then I'd say the hard drive may have seen its last days.
