Apple Warrranties are only good for Apple-certified people to take care of.  If your Best Buy has an Apple dealer, call them up to ask.  I know in my town, the Apple Store is new here and for certain parts, I'd have to go online to buy for the powerbook g4.  They are a rather small part in the whole store.  You'll have to check if your best buy has any apple dealers in there, and they can point you in the right direction.  if not, go online and type in apple dealers in your area.

Where to buy used mac notebook parts

ebay can be a good place. is a pretty good place too. they have new and used parts (used parts aren't always available, however on a laptop this old, i would assume they have some) and also have videos and PDF files on step by step disassembly. I have found it to be a pretty good resource for apple repair. hope this helps:)

Take it to an authorized Apple repair depot, for service, whether the warranty is still valid, or even if the warranty has expired.

Display fades after 2 hours use. It starts fading to either all black or white and I can't work anymore until the laptop has been turnned off and rests and is rebooted.

It's an issue with your motherboard, a heat problem with the GPU, probably defective solder connections of the GPU. Obviously bring it to the Genius bar first. If you're not under warranty, there is a free Mac Repair guide that will show you how to replace the motherboard. Otherwise . iPad Repair

Ibook G4 shuts down by itself

You are having a problem with the logic board/power supply. I had the same issue a while back. I hope it is still under warranty as it is around a 500 - 600 dollar fix. If you take it into apple and they take your computer in for a repair and they mess it up, they will replace it with a newer one, which is what happened to me. So I hope you have similar luck, but other wise you might consider upgrading to a newer model just to avoid the cost if it is still not under a extended apple warranty. Which I bet is the case, being it is a G4 (6-8 years old).
