View Full Version : PB screen latch-- that was scary...

Ok, so I go to close my powerbook like always and the latch doesn't go down all the way. I look, and the thing that swings down from the top is not going into the hole. I try fiddling with it and nothing is working. I'd be able to push it around, and it would go in the hole, but it woundn't catch. I figure somehow through wear and tear, it got screwed up.

So I figured I'd have to call applecare and I'd go a few days without my powerbook and blah blah blah.

I was fiddling with it some more and i noticed that one side of the button that you press to open the PB was pressed in. I pushed the other side of it and it came out normally, and then I was able to close my pb all the way.

YAY! Simple little quirk. No serious problem.
