 Post subject: Clamshell iBook screen goes black
PostPosted: Wed Jul 30, 2003 12:35 am 
My Clamshell iBook (original blue model) screen is black most of the time. Sometime is comes on for a short while and other times it flashes on and off. I have had the screen replaced by Apple a couple of years ago but do not have AppleCare :( I have the original battery but it does the same with the AC Adapter/Charger plugged in and the battery fully charged. I am not about to send it back to Apple as they charged me $700 to fix it last the last time. It worked fine until the warranty ran out.
Thanking you all ahead of time for any help I receive.

It could be a problem with the video card on your logic board or your display. We'd need the unit to diagnosis the laptop completely.

Thanks for your resonse. Since then I took my iBook to CompUSA and they said it wasn't worth fixing. They quoted my around $700 to fix it. I also went to the new Apple Store at Bellevue Square. The screen was lit dim when I showed it to them. They quoted my $820 to fix the back light. Yeah, right. I already have over $2400 into it. $1795 for the original purchase price and more than $700 to Apple to replace the screen. I think CompUSA may be right. :?

The prices you are quoted are simply ridiculous. Powerbookmedic.com came about because powerbook owners are being ripped off by the traditional repair service centers. We sell the display for $229.95. Repair labor is $65.00. The iBook is worth keeping. Don't let those repair centers get the best of you.
