ok i'm going to assume these were both 12" machines.
If one section of the display (usually broken up into 1/3 sections) that is almost always the LCD. On a 12", the inverter board almost never goes bad, so it would most likely be the LCD.
Thanks for the quick reply.
So, from what I am getting here, it seems as though the original 1.5 powerbook screen needs a new LCD screen. By the way, the display that I bought from Ebay, well, I think that is just a faint screen and you can see more of the faintness. Therefore, should I assume that it is also the LCD? Should I contact this person and tell them the story and get my money back? As I said, I took the powerbook to work and it worked using the DVI to S Video adapter. I have heard that if you can get an external monitor to work, then it isn't the logic board.
Is there any other thing that I can do (meaning the wires or stuff) to troubleshoot it or is it a done deal? I also bought an inverter board on Ebay to repair the original 1.5 screen. Would I have any luck with putting the inverter in the display that I got from Ebay with most of the screen just faint? By the way, they are 12" screens.
