PowerBook G4 15" Alumium LCD Cracked, see lines, HELP!!!

I have PowerBook G4 Al 15" Model #: A1106... I see a big crack from top right corner to bottom left corner... when I turn it on, I partially see images and I can even do a minor work.. I hooked it up to an external monitor... looks and works great on the external monitor... so I finally purchased a LCD display from an online seller... the seller said it's for A1106 model... I carefully replaced the new one with broken one... now it looks really really bad... I see nothing but lines and lines!!!  External monitor still works though... I switched back to the broken one... I can see partial images... I don't know whats going?!!! Do you think the new monitor I bought is defective? HELP ME HELP YOU!

I have a hisesense 40" lcd lked tv.i grabbed it fron the top and my finger touched the screen.now its has about 12"black uneven spot and in the spot i have rainbow lcolor lines..plus one blue vertica


It sounds like you cracked the screen. If it is cracked, you cannot fix it. Your only options are to replace the screen (BIG $$$) or buy a new set. If you can email me a pic of the TV I can tell you for sure if the screen is cracked. LCD screen are very thin, about as thick as a dime and it doesn't take much to crack them.

The lcd is cracked.need to know where to get it fixed.it is on the inside.it looks black and white and cracked


My screen is not "cracked" although it does look like its cracked in lower right corner. It's black on that side about 1/2" from edge althe way to the top an the other side is very shaded. This makes seeing the picture impossible to see with any clarity.
