2006 powerbook G4. my screen will get glitchy and i can see multi color squares and lines randomly on the screen. when i move a window the pixels chase and outline my movements. any ideas?


sounds like the video card is dying. I was able to hold off on one dying by downloading a fan controller that kept the machine cooler, but with the age of the G4, it's likely damaged. Consider replacing or the fan controller.

My other computer, G4 Macbook Pro, has a screen issue. When it is turned on and in process of coming up, the screen shows large sections of odd colors such as light pink or light green or light blue. Then...


Connect an external display to the computer. If the lines and distortion shows up on the external display its the video card, which is attached to the logic board. So, the whole logic board will need to be replaced.
If the lines and distortion don't show up on the external display the issue is the LCD module, which will need to be replaced.

The wether does have something to do with it. After a lightning storm humidity is a problem. the humidity and heat can make the screen lighter, kind of grey.

While is was searching on the internet my iBook G4 locked up. I tried to reboot and it locked up again. I tried to reinstall OSX but during the install it locked up. I replaced the memory and hard drive...


Dude, if you have all the current updates for your OS and applications, then you got a logic board issue. Especially if you you keep seeing the spinning beach ball of death or the dreaded white screen of death. 
The iBook G4 is the poster child for logic board defects, because it has to do with the way the circuit boards were flowed.  Apple won't fix this for the iBook G4.  You got to do a big class action lawsuit like they did with the iBook G3 before they will replace the logic board.
Best bet is to sell this thing on e-bay as a non-working unit and get you a better laptop.

Yellow vertical lines on powerbook g4


Never a good sign.... usually means that your video adapter is shot.
Most laptop video is built on the motherboard, so that would entail the entire motherboard being replaced. Any chance it is still under warranty???

One other thing it could be... do the lines chnage at all when you tilt the screen back and forth? If so, it might be a loose connection between the moterboard and the monitor. That would be significantly cheaper to fix!

Ibook screen issues


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

Hi Ryclick,

Boot the machine from the external OS(another machine in target disc mode) check for the issue, if issue does not persists re-install the OS.
If nothing work you may have to try reseating the LVDS cable of the display. This could be an issue with the faulty LVDS cable or the internal display it self.
