Yes. I think your monitor is probably dead. Those monitors are all at least 5-10 years old now. However, the only way to verify that fact is to take the monitor to another Mac and check it out. Having voltage on some of the video card pins is not a problem. Also, replacing the battery would probably not have any effect on your problem.

If you can find another Mac compatible monitor Try connecting your Mac to it and see if your Mac's monitor port is still functioning.

You can actually use an ordinary VGA but you will need a properly configured Mac-To-VGA converter.  Ask your Mac dealer about this.

cci is right, your 12" RGB Display could be the problem.

good luck,

Just make sure.

Does your Mac still sound healthy when you start it up?

Do you hear the Startup sound?

1. Test your monitor on another mac
2. Test another monitor on your mac
3. When starting up the mac use option-command-P-R to reset the PRAM.
4. Use a start up disk or external hard drive to start up your mac, your hard drive may be dead.
