I know it's a very common fault with iBook G3's that over time, the video card or summin' comes loose off the logicboard which makes the screen to go all funny.

When I first boot it up, for example in the morning, I can adjust the screen to any angle I wish. Then after about an hour, it blacks out, so I push the screen further inwards to make it work again and so on... Until I get to the point where the screen's basically on an 85 degree angle, which is incredibly annoying.

ALSO, even if I move a millimetre, the screen blacks out again, so I have to give it a wiggle until it works again.

My question is, IS THERE A WAY AROUND THIS?

I'm going to guess that it's the ribbon to your monitor.
