Dropped iBook - Monitor Grey/White Only External Monitor Works
Posted on 2008-11-12
I need help fixing the display on my iBook G4 14" 1.42 GHz. The iBook fell off the couch to the floor, a distance of about 2.5 feet. The computer starts up just fine, but the iBook display just shows grey/white. I get full video using an external monitor and the iBook keyboard and track pad work fine according to the external monitor.
I disassemble the laptop and removed the case around the monitor. The hinge is broken on the right side, but there is no other obvious damage.
I am willing to replace whatever parts need replacing, but would like some ideas as to what should be replaced first. This iBook has the combined Airport /Bluetooth card.
Thanks for the help.
