LCD Problem Hi! I have this iBook G3 that just balckout when i opened it. I used it in the morning and when i opened it half of the video display opened and blackout. I could not c anything on the monitor although it has power. i brought it to a service center and they said 85% of the problem is the motherboard. I consulted another technician and he said it's the LCD. I saw it and the video display opened but it hanged. What do you think is the real problem? Another problem is that it has no serial number and if ever i will parts of it, they said i cant buy because the requirement is the serial no. Please help me on this because i feel hopeless.

Hook up the ibook to a external monitor, via the monitor cable, if it comes up, you know its not your motherboard. There should be a monitor icon on your keyboard to switch from laptop monitor to external monitor, it could have been pressed by accident.

My ibbok 3g wont play dvds or youtube? help


Many iBook G3s came with optical drives for CDs only, not DVDs; and the decoding software for many of today's popular video formats runs extremely slow on all G3 processors. It's not clear that there is anything wrong with your computer other than its age. The first iBook G3 models were ten years old last February.

Ibook powers up but no video


Before disassembling the unit, the recommended way to diagnose a display failure is to use the appropriate adapter to connect the iBook to an external display or TV. If the external display shows an image, the internal display assembly is at fault; otherwise, it could be the graphics processor or logic board. This step may be more difficult now that you have your unit apart.
Two cable sets drive the display. One provides image signal, the other provides power to the backlight. It is common for them to fray where they run through the hinges. Either or both could be the cause of your problem. Another possibility is that your backlight has burned out, as it is nothing but a small fluorescent tube and they fail with age.

YouTube videos play, but jump from scene to scene. Audio plays in real time and sounds fine.


turns out you have an iBook G3. Your computer is really too outdated to be expected to play video properly. You can add more RAM but it really will only partially help you out. the G3 computers just aren't made for decoding streaming video, especially now that YT has HD video.

Grey screen on G3 ibook


Hi, Sorry you are having trouble,
Sounds to me like you're going to have to re-open that puppy and check all the connections, sometimes, when putting it back together, some cables are stretched and come un plugged...
Be careful, go slow...

LCD / External VGA output problems


Hi
If you are still faced with this problem.....
Possibly the video card has gone in the unit. The original screen on the laptop may have had an blown inverter which would not stop the funcioning of the external display. However for the external disply to stop working would suggest the video card. Before going this far have you checked to see if there is power to the external monitor? Have you tried the monitor on another computer? If the monitor works with another computer you can be certain there is more wrong with your poor old iBook. You will need to take it in to be looked at.

Hope this helps.
