Hello !

Since an external monitor works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.

In either case, a technician in your area should be able to help. Evaluate to see if the repair is cost-effective.

Hope this helps.

When I turn on my mac g3 works but the screen stays


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.

you can try to change wire but extremely hard to do so. most like your monitor has blown and to fix this problem you have to get the exactly same monitor for the laptop your better off hooking it up to and external monitor.
