Would it be that you simply havnt done up the screws on the monitor lead and it's come a lil loose, your screen gets no sig and goes whit and you still hear the chime of the startup, thats what it sounds lie anyway..... or try montor control panel in prefs and see if all is well there? i'd check the cable first though..lol

Hook up that monitor to another laptop or computer. If it works then its an issue with the vga port on your laptop. If the monitor still shows those lines then you know for sure the monitor is bad and it will have to be replaced.

Some models of G3 iMac have an external display connector under the rear belly plate. Connect a monitor to this connector. If that monitor shows your desktop, your main CRT is blown. The cost of replacing a CRT in this model is almost certainly more than the residual value of the machine.

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.
